This is my first entry for the blogger’s quilt festival that I call the rainbow flying geese quilt. It is a queen size quilt that I started in 2012 and only recently finished.
This quilt is made with only 4 different fabrics (2 ombre fabrics, Kona charcoal and a black backing fabric). All the flying geese are single seam flying geese – a method that saves so much time and makes the geese a little 3-D but uses more fabric.
Oh and did I mention it is hand quilted in 14 different colors – something I will probably never attempt again on such a large scale, but is beautiful close up. In between each flying geese I hand quilted a flying geese in a coordinating color going the opposite direction. The result was 682 separate stitched areas – not that I counted or anything…
Thanks for reading!
