Mitchell on his Beach Birds Quilt

Today was the first time Mitchell saw his finished Beach Birds quilt.  

He's very good in math.  He knows his multiplication tables and soon figured out that each block in the center had 10 pieces of fabric.  And he multiplied 11 blocks by 13 blocks.  Then he counted up all the geese blocks that have 3 pieces of fabric each.  After doing some paper math and some calculator math, he soon came up with a total of 1840 pieces of fabric in his quilt.  Pretty smart, eh!

I hope some of you get to see it at the FQG Quilt show next weekend.

It's beautiful and a complete sucess by the looks on that young man's face. Congrats on a beautiful finish and a mathmatician! Can I borrow him from time to time. Some days I can't count to 10! :-)
