Believe it or not, I have never made a flying geese quilt before. It's always been on my list. Several months ago the kind people at Timeless Treasures sent me some fabric to play with. I requested a bundle of Matilda by Alice Kennedy. With the busy summer, it took me a while to finally dig in.
When fall rolled around, I decided it was time to work with this bundle. I love the big prints from the line, but large prints don't generally fit into my quilting style. I decided to finally take the leap and make a flying geese quilt, but make the geese large enough to showcase the prints.
I backed the quilt in minky which really has become my favorite quilt backing.
The binding is Timeless Treasures Sketch in Coffee.
I did a simple all-over stipple using cream thread. My geese were cut using the EZ Quilting Easy Star and Geese Ruler which I believe I purchased about three years ago. It was so long ago that I forgot I even had the ruler and almost bought it again. Luckily I checked my ruler stash before checking out.
The geese are 4 1/2" x 9" finished which ended up being the size to best use my fat quarters. The quilt finishes about 60" x 72". It will be wrapped and gifted this Christmas to someone special. One gift checked off the list!
And since I was taking these quilt pictures in the leaves, here are a few other pics from my little photo shoot. Fall is my favorite time of year for photos.
