As the end of the year approaches, I have my last finish of the year to share!
I call this quilt Flight....
The grey is a new fabric from Studio E....it is a Peppered Cotton in a dark charcoal color.
The Geese are paper foundation pieced. Two Geese per block with a finished block size of 6 inches square.
I felt the design of this quilt lent itself to machine quilting rather than pick stitch.
So I went with a large loopy motif....easy to do and not at all perfect in appearance. Call me crazy, but I prefer my quilts to look less than perfect...more homemade and lived-in.
I used Aurifil thread for the piecing and the quilting.
The backing is this fabulous fabric from Anna Maria Horner's Dowry Collection...AMAZING!!!
This quilt is about 42" X 54"....perfect for a lap or a baby....
You can see this one at Sew To Speak....
it will be a class in the New Year!
Love the kwilting ! I am with you on the less thn perfect look!ReplyDelete
Ooh, I love the colors. I definitely want to learn how to piece shapes this coming year. There's a quilt in Quilty magazine that I'd love to make.ReplyDelete
its beautiful. i really want some of the studio E solids too! again...wish i wasnt so far away, would love to take your classReplyDelete
Gorgeous! Great colours and i love the amh on the back! A perfect compliment to the front and adds a touch of traditional. Beautiful! Makes me want to do flying geese :-)ReplyDelete
Love the simplicity.ReplyDelete
I think all my quilts look homemade then, for they are far from perfect!!
Such a stunning quilt, Mary!ReplyDelete
Mary, I love Flight! I work for Triangles On A Roll and we have a paper that makes rows of Flying Geese so easy! They come in 5 sizes. See tutorial:ReplyDelete
I noticed you will have a class for Flight. Would you be interested in me sending you some FG paper to play with?
I love it! Beautiful! I love the quilting. I too like un-perfect quilts. Most likely because I couldn't make it perfect if I tried.ReplyDelete
Beautiful work Mary!ReplyDelete
Your loop quilting is lovely with this beautiful quilt! I agree that quilts need to have that homemade and lived-in look. Makes them ever so much more fun to curl up with them and enjoy.:)ReplyDelete
Just gorgeous. I think I want to be you when I grow up :-)ReplyDelete
This is a stunning a stunning quilt! Everything about it is beautiful. I bet you class to teach this will be booked out in no time.ReplyDelete
Great quilt...love the look and the quilting...looks amazing. I am intimidated by quilting anything bigger than a table runner by machine...looks like I need to overcome that fear.ReplyDelete
I have another entirely different reason for a lack of perfection -skill with my FMQing mainly! Your geese are lovely!ReplyDelete
