I often claim to have a Quilting "Hobby" in attempts to hide my obsession with fabric and color.

Winter Flying Geese

"Winter Flying Geese" is officially done. 68"x68" makes it a PERFECT nap quilt.

I have done Flying Geese blocks before in a quilt, but never as the primary block. This was a fun adventure for many reasons. It was pattern-less, got rid of some of those "what was I thinking" fabrics, and had almost no waste because I used the drops to form the border.

Let me tell you, shoving 400 some pairs of those tiny little triangle drops can be both theraputic and mind numbing. I did an echo stitch in a lime-ish green thread and then did a pretty scrolling heart shaped leaf pattern on the borders. It has a super soft cuddly mint green flannel backing and I machine bound it with a little blue drop I had lying around. Not a bad way to make a dent in the stash. I am posting it for sale on my website if anyone is interested, and the full material contents are listed there as well.

 Feel free to come peek, and send your friends too! The more traffic I get, the more quilts I can make and sell! (sorry for the plug, but hey, I gotta get the word out!)

  1. I've never thought to do Flying Geese as a primary block. You just always see it as a border treatment...what a great way to use up scraps. I may have to copy this, Michelle :)

  2. Thank you! I had a lot of fun with this one. I plan to make more. Nice way to play with color....simple but not boring!

  3. I really like your flying geese quilt and will post this on pinterest so I will really do it some day. What a wonderful way to use up my scraps beautifully. Nice job!


Thanks for coming! Let me know what you think, ideas, suggestions, or just say hi! I love knowing you were here!
