I love it when people say that they would love a new quilt for their birthday (or Christmas!).
So when my sister said she wanted one, I got to work on another gray and blue quilt. I gave her this one last year, and wanted the 2021 version to coordinate.
The original design doesn't look like much, but I used lots of different fabrics for the background and geese, and to me, that makes the quilt come alive. (Anyone see where my layout differs from my pattern? Hint: upper right corner. I just flip-flopped the placement for a goose block and a blank background block. )
I backed this quilt with minky and had it quilted by my long arm quilter using a pattern from Urban Elementz called "Malachite." I settled on that pattern because it looks like a topographical map to me: it looks like my geese are flying over a topo map!
I love how this quilt turned out! It finishes around 72" x 76", and I wrote up a quick tutorial for it. You can find that tutorial here.
Thanks for stopping by!
