I finished the Geese baby quilt (38″ x 44″) made with Kona Ash and the bright “boy” scraps. I am really happy with the way it turned out. I took these photos in the bright sun just to show the quilting.
The quilting is all done with gray Bottom Line by Superior. I wanted it to just be texture and shadows, no additional color. The horizontal and vertical lines are all done with the walking foot, then I did the diagonals and the echo quilting in free motion. It was a little hard to distinguish the geese that are flying horizontally, so I echo quilted inside of them, and I like the result.
The scraps include whales, construction trucks, baseball equipment, and Mickey Mouse. I was cleaning out my 6 1/2″ squares, so I made 51/2″finished blocks to make the most of the fabric. I used the two-squares-and-a-rectangle method, and this very handy chart to calculate sizes.
This is only the second Flying Geese quilt I’ve ever made, and the other was long ago. I loved how easily and precisely the blocks went together using this method. Now I’m going to do another, busier one using pinks!
Can’t wait to see your finishes! I’m linking up to Whoop Whoop Friday at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.
