Modern Geese in Flight #2

I am going to entry this quilt and a couple others today at Amy's Creative Side Bloggers Quilt Festival.
This one is going in the Modern quilts category



The pattern was a Stash Buster pattern from Sager Creek Quilt Shop in Siloam Springs Arkansas.
Every other month they have a meeting for quilter to share, show and tell plus get patterns to help use up our stash. 



The fabric in this quilt was a gift from one of my daughters and in return I have made this quilt as a gift to her for Christmas.


There are 140 flying geese in this quilt. The block measures 6 x 3 and the quilt measures 53" X 66" 


I used Deb Tucker Wing Clipper to trim these blocks so they went together perfectly.


I had intended to quilt this myself on my home machine, I was going to use my walking foot to get the straight lines.
But I gave it to the quilter and he was able to get the look I was going to do. 
The lines are space at different widths. From 1/2" to 1 1/2"
Turn out just right.


Voting starts Oct 29 and goes on till Nov 5th 
at Amy's Creative Side

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
