my mixed up geese quilt



Last week I finished up this lovely cuddily quilt. You may remember my mixed up geese from this post. I had lots of fun combining a crazy mix of fabrics together in these blocks and with a light wool blend batting it has ended up so soft & cosy.







A few quilt stats:
'my mixed up geese' quilt
It's a mish-mash of scrappy fabrics & colour totally inspired by Margaret from semichaotic 
and I simply repeated one block from the sewcialbeesampler QAL earlier in the year
Floral border fabric 'Perennial Optimism' from the Bountiful collection by Maureen Cracknell
- loving the vintage vibe of this new-ish fabric
And I used an old vintage sheet for the backing
Machine quilted in a connected circles pattern by Annette de Raat
Quilt size 1.2m x 1.7m

Linking up with Amanda Jean for 'finish it up friday' over here at crazymomquilts

  3. Framing and sashing the flying geese has created a delight. The yellow sets it off so well. Congratulations.
