Red, White, and Blue Geese - a Finish

Back in April, I shared that I had been playing around with making Flying Geese blocks out of some 30s reproduction fabric scraps that a friend had shared at my quilt group meeting.  I left off with this possible layout:



This week, I decided I wanted to finish this up as a summery mini for my table, and I just completed it this afternoon!  In spite of my faulty quilt math when making these geese, it went together pretty quickly and easily!


I quilted it with wacky, wavy, organic lines in a light blue thread, and used my favorite blue and white print for the backing and binding.  To make finishing it even faster, I machine stitched the binding both to the back and the front, and I like how it turned out!


I decided it would make a nice table topper for the outdoor door table on our deck, which is where we eat most of our meals throughout the summer.


It's always a good feeling to have a little finish to share - especially a WiP that was just a pile of blocks a few days ago!

Oh - and one more fun photo from my photographer husband - my little penguins!

  3. If you hadn't confessed to faulty math, no one would ever know you hadn't designed the whole thing purposely. Very nifty finish!
