Mini Quilt in Progress
I’ve been on a flying geese kick lately, and the inspiration given, by my secret partner, lent itself to the stacking of like objects. I worked out 2″, 4″ and 6″ wide geese, and enjoyed piecing the little bits. If flying geese are an enigma for you, I shared a tutorial in this post, they are fun to make!
My kitchen floor is usually the design floor, but for all these little pieces (started with 134, ended with 106 geese!), I had a brilliant idea. I pinned a piece of batting to the curtain hanging in the kitchen, and presto – design wall!
Laying out the quilt top, I eliminated one print that wasn’t playing nice, then reconfigured pieces, again and again. Then began sewing, some of the smallest were sewn together as a brick of four, and others are long strips. In the end there were a few partial seams to join all the columns. The only problem with the batting on the curtain, was the lack of sunshine for my pictures!
The mini measures 18″ x 24″ – and I’m going to have a hard time sending it off!
Yesterday I quilted the piece with some straight lines, and cannot wait to finish and wash it. Love a finish! I’ll be back with those photos soon – it has to be in the mail by Monday!
