Flying Geese Mini Quilt

I’m late in posting today, I had to wash my mini, and bring out all the texture!
Fab Little Quilt Swap

Love those crinkles!

FLQS detail

All the geese are pretty close to perfect, and the differing sizes were a fun puzzle to put together.

FLQS binding

I think my favorite part is the binding!  I had to stop myself from adding it to the quilt top, and I’m so glad I did.  It pulls it all together, and is a nice bit of symbolism, since it is a swap quilt.

I have another mini in mind, to keep for myself.

What are you working on today?

    A good swim really changes the texture and feel of our quilts. Lovely finish.

    I still think it looks like mountains! The big triangles are the closer mountains and the little triangles are the mountains that are farther away!

    Love the colors and all the sizes. I agree with Missy – it looks like “purple mountain majesty . . . “

    Wonderful mini!!! You’re right, the binding is way fun!
    Today, I’m doing some visual research for my next quilting adventure and have a file folder with my visual inspiration. Next… to the drawing board.
    Have a great day.
    Always, Queenie

    It really came out nice! I love the straight line quilting on it! My favorite part is binding too :) I just love to sit and hand stitch at the end. I’ll be starting a double wedding ring wall hanging tomorrow after making another test block with pieced arcs. Wish me luck! :)

    Imagine telling a story with “beyond seven mountains” to your kid and pointing on the mountains – priceless!

    A gaggle. Also used to describe a noisy or disorderly group of people, children, etc. Flock sounds like its on the ground to me anyway.
