The NY Beauty Circle of Flying Geese Pattern
 by Janice Ryan of Better Off Thread
Pattern available at Craftsy.

Foundation Paper Pieced - Finished size: 22 inches x 22 inches.

Color Wheel: Fat Eighth Bundle from Surly Sheep
Background fabric: Something I picked up from Joann's!
Backing fabric: Kona Cotton Sold in Bone from Fresh Modern Fabric
Binding fabric:  Essex Yarn Dyed Linen in Black by Robert Kaufman

I should also mention that I ruined two ironing board covers at our quilting guild making this quilt.  Only one was mine. I should no longer be allowed to use irons that don't pop up on their own.

Thanks for looking!
