From the Vault!

 I'd like to share another quilt I made nearly 10 years ago!


(I posted this a couple of days ago but somehow when I went looking for it, it wasn't there!!! Spooky!)

I didn't know much about chain piecing when I made my Flying Nine Patch!


I gathered fabrics from all over to make this quilt!

The colours are quite dull but I still love how it looks-

After repeated washings!


Lots of chain piecing of flying geese and nine patch blocks...

Make up this large 75" X 65" quilt.

I had it professionally machine quilted..


My name for it- "Mullum Mullum Autumn" -came from the place where we were 

living at the time....

Mullum Mullum is an aboriginal word for 'place of many big birds'!

Kind of appropriate for a flying geese quilt, don't you think!

Happy days!

  5. Just saw this on Flickr and came over to nose at your blog :-). I love flying geese and this is fabulous. I love the colour palette - restful rather than dull I think!
