Flying My Geese Home
I loved the idea of this quilt when I saw Jenny's video tutorial. I knew I'd have to make one. I used a Tonga Treat pkg in Creamsicle, a grey from my stash for the geese. The border was a print I found at WalMart and just loved the big scale print. The center of the flowers was a very bright yellow that didn't quite work with the muted colors of the batiks so I fixed that with a permanent marker in a muted pink that made a lovely orange shade over the yellow. The piecing went together quickly but I didn't get to quilting it right away. Am glad I waited. My quilting is constantly improving so I'm very pleased with this one. I do like to use up the big pieces in my stash for my backings, I like them to be interesting too, this one is pretty bold.
