up & down geese


 My 'flying geese overload' quilt is finished.
Meredithe from pomegranateandchintz
suggested last week that maybe I could try every second row of geese flying upside down
- thanks Meredithe, such a great idea, I love the effect!



After getting the backing pieced and the layers all basted, I did some machine quilting.
Lots of parallel straight lines, evenly spaced across the quilt.
And I used a teal solid for the binding, it seemed to tie the whole quilt together really well. 







The fnished quilt is approx. 45" x 60" a great 'throw' size for the couch,
and that's another project crossed off the long list!
Linking up with Cynthia for 'oh scrap' here

  10. Really lovely quilt, Linda. Meredith's idea of making alternate rows of geese go in the opposite direction was inspired, made your quilt just perfect. I agree, this binding was the right choice, shows the block patterns and colours of the quilt so beautifully.

  11. The change in direction of some of the flying gees units have made all the difference, beautiful.
