Again, it took me longer than anticipated. Ah well. Here she is:
Thought I'd show you a bit of the final construction process.
|Flying geese units of 2 sewn together|
|The final arrangement|
Book It!" method of construction once I'd sewed the flying geese pairs together. It really kept things nicely organized, as this quilt is symmetrical in all four directions. I left a 3" tail of thread at the top of each "booked" row, so I'd know which was the top of the quilt. Even so, there was a couple of times where I had to refer to one of my pictures to see whether it was a green or a blue flying geese unit at the top of a given row!
The two halves of the centre section ready to be joined. I was so happy with the paths of geese popping the way they do. I purchased this light fabric with help from one of the girls at Alma Sue's Quilts. I also bought the deep plum final border there.
And here she is once more. It fits our bistro table rather nicely! Now to purchase backing and get it quilted.
