Back in March I was the queen in the Modern Stitching Bee. I asked to be goosed...no not that kind of goose. I wanted flying geese blocks in red, yellow and aqua on a grey background; any color grey. I gave my group free reign to make any size block and any formation of geese.
These are the blocks I received. So many gorgeous creations...
I sewed them all together in rows (except Rhonda's big block. That will be make into a matching pillow). There were mostly 12-1/2" blocks. But there were also many other sizes that I sewed together, adding more grey background fabric to bring the blocks up to size to fit into rows.
I quilted it with wavy lines mixed with leaves. I am really enjoying this free-motion quilting thing now that I finally found a thread that works well in my machine.
I backed it with the astericks print from the Comma line. It's a perfect compliment to the quilt.
I used the houndtooth check in black to bind it making a nice frame and following the "always add a touch a black to your quilts" rule.
I am linking this to the Finish-A-Long with Leanne. It is the only thing on my list of three that I actually finished.
