Finish: Baby Geese 2

4 Comments

IMG_2288pYesterday I finished up another take on the geese, and I like it a lot.  You can see the Flea Market Fancy in it, but I also used up lots of old pinks from my stash, including a pink Jinny Beyer check that might be from the early nineties.

IMG_2289Since I was cutting yardage, sometimes small bits, I made these blocks 6″ finished, easy to cut and sew and calculate.  The quilt finishes at 36″ x 42″.

IMG_2297I used the walking foot with pale yellow Bottom Line by Superior to stitch between all the blocks to keep it square.  Then I switched to free motion and did a small stipple over all the background triangles.  I was worried that dense quilting might make it stiff, but its not at all, and the unquilted geese are especially soft and nice.  Warm and White batting.

IMG_2287I am in love with the rose batik I used for the back.

IMG_2299Stay tuned for version 3, which may be the last of the series!
