This is one of my all time favorite quilts that I have made!
I started this project in January of 2012.
It has been under wraps for a long time,
but I think I can do a reveal now.
It made a mini appearance last week.
I love paper piecing. And Triangles! And color!
So what a perfect match.
As usual, I just started making blocks with no real thought
as to the end project.
I felt the geese needed something else, so I made a few of these.
I tried some different layouts.
I'll admit, I was looking for chaos.
Then I realized that if I made some two geese blocks,
I could really mix this up easily.
The four geese blocks equal two, and with a nine patch mix,
I had a 12" block.
Here is the back all put together before the "un-papering."
That's a lot of paper!
Good sit and watch a movie activity.
My friend David suggested a diagonal quilting.
This was the first of many dense channel quiltings I have done.
I have to say I love the look.
I used the edge of my walking foot for guidance.
Summer 2012 at that beach.
Before piecing the blocks.
Black & White binding. Always a fave.
I did fussy cut some of the centers on these little blocks.
A pieced back. Orange, another fave!
And a label. I am trying to always label my quilts.
Do you do that?
Because, I can't believe this quilt is almost two years old.
I would have told you I made it three months ago!
