RAINBOW GEESE





 another one finished up!  This really was my oldest work-in-progress!  this top has been sitting partially quilted for 2 1/2 years.

i think my original inspiration came from these bee blocks that i made.  i always liked that lone row of geese, but decided to make them proper geese and fly across the quilt.  and of course i was on a huge rainbow kick.

it feels so good to have it finished up.  i think the one thing that i really like about it at this point is the quilting design, which i had actually drawn up way back then as well.

on to the next one!!

  4. I love the sense of movement in this quilt. You're eye is drawn one direction with the flying geese, then when you take a second look and catch sight of the quilting everything flows in another direction. Lovely!

  16. I used your tutorial to finally get a granny square quilt top done. Thanks so much for sharing a block I am sooo in love with!! I posted a photo of the quilt top on my blog, just need a little more work on the shashing and it's a done deal. Thanks again

  17. I love this quilt. It has so much going for it. With a slight tweak in the color scheme, you can change the whole mood, but I like it just as it is.
