I think I may have let the alliteration get a bit out of hand there. I am happy to finally have a finish to share though. Here’s my flying geese quilt, fully quilted and bound. I’m calling it, Which Way Do I Go, which seems a very appropriate name of late. It looks a bit more wavy than it actually is. I washed it with the intention of blocking it, and then forgot completely about it. A helpful soul took it out of the washing machine and hung it up to dry, using clips to hang it on wire hangers. By the time I remembered it, the quilt was almost completely dry and somewhat distorted. I am sure if I wet it again and actually lay it flat to dry, it will be fine.
The texture came out pretty well, if I do say so myself. Part of the reason that the texture shows is that i used a few different threads. Looking at them (below), you would think they would stand out too much against the fabrics, but all of them somehow blended in. I think that even though overall the thread blends in overall, the quilting stands out where the thread color changes.
All of the geese are free motion quilted. You can see the threads used in the feature picture. Here’s a bit more detail of the quilting and a picture of the quilt back, which used a selection of fabrics that I thought went together with the quilt top reasonably well.
This quilt was my Lovely Year of Finishes August goal, and it was goal number on my 2015 Quilt Along Q3 goals list. I’m linking it up to Sara at Confessions of a Fabric Addict, to TGIFF, and to Finish Along Friday. Go chek them out. there is a lot to see!
