It’s time for the Blogger’s Quilt Festival at Amy’s Creative Side!
Thanks for taking the time to stop for a minute! Out of the few quilts I’ve made this year, this is my favorite. It was made for the Hands2Help charity challenge and was delivered to Romania by Judi at Green Fairy Quilts.
This was a swap challenge and my partner sent some lovely calicos to which I added the background fabric. I began with a commercial pattern that called for some 2 1/2 inch strips, but realized early on that it wasn’t working and used the strips to begin making flying geese. No plan in mind…just making geese! There were soon enough for borders but to continue with such small pieces would have been very fussy.
In came the big geese blocks and the corners I trimmed off those became half square triangles for the other blocks. The addition of little borders made them the same size.
A very simple back and a quilting meander completed it. My design process was totally backward for this project, but it worked and I love it!
Thanks to Amy and all the sponsors for letting us link up!
