Flying North or South!

That is the name of my latest finish!

I made the label when I took a break from writing school reports!
I had wanted to make a flying geese quilt for a long 

time and had various versions pinned on Pinterest.

Just some of the 25 fabrics in the quilt

And I'd been collecting fabrics for quite some time...

One arrangement I considered
The Meadowland quilt, of which I have made two, 

 uses the four-at-a-time 

method of construction,

so I used it this time and it came together quite 

quickly.


Although I did decide to make an extra column as 

originally it was 48" by 60" - a little skinny!

Normally I like skinny, just not in my quilts!


Making the extra five blocks took no time at all.

My friend Deb suggested I get my hands on this 

quilting book


And I was thrilled that one of the nearby libraries 


had it!



So it is quilted in wavy organic lines.



I like the little hints of red scattered across the 


greens and blues.




 It was another glorious Winter's day,



perfect for some glamour shots!

  1. Hallo Suz!
    Das Quilting ist ja wunderbar geworden:-)) Jetzt kannst Du dieses Prachtstück auch endlich nutzen. Und das Label, als Dresden Plate genäht ist ja wirklich eine sehr schöne Idee. Das werde ich mir merken.
    Ganz liebe sommerliche Grüße aus dem Südwesten Deutschlands, sendet Dir die Bildersammlerin!

  4. Super quilt, with a wonderful array of greens and yellow-greens. I love the block arrangement, and give two thumbs up for the wavy-line quilting. I love WALK as it has so much good information, and recommend it to my FMQ classes. Bravo to you for another finish!

  7. A wonderful quilt! And a great photo shoot too! I like that your geese go up & down, lots of movement, and those little 'pops' of red work brilliantly!

  13. GOSH, I love this quilt. I made a green quilt a few years back and boy, did I struggle with choosing the fabrics. Not a problem I usually have. It was for our grandson’s bride to be shower gift. Her favorite color is green. She and everyone else at the shower loved but I always felt that I could have done better with the fabric choices. This is the FIRST quilt since then that has inspired me to work with a predominate green color. Thank you sooo much for posting. This would also enable me to reach another goal of making a flying geese quilt. Lol, we even have a goose named Oliver. Yup, SHE was named way before we found an egg. Happy quilting..BTW, I just found this blog and sure will follow.

  17. Your geese turned out beautifully Susan. I like the wavy quilting lines too. It's one of my go to motifs when I do the quilting myself . . . which isn't all that often these days.

  18. Hi, Susan. I am back from holidays and catching up on your posts. You have been keeping busy. And it looks like there has been a lot of blue and green in your projects. Gorgeous combinations. I am liking the two most recent quilts with these colors. I find the colours and patterns very fresh in appearance. And well done with the spiral quilting. That took a lot of patience.
    I do hope you have been enjoying the mid year break. keep warm. Cheers.
