A few months ago, I posted on a sewing day we had at our group, where we stitched a mystery quilt.
I left the day having finished this much of our mystery quilt. It came as a kit, all precut and it was great fun to do.
Of course, in true Suzie fashion, it sat there like that for quite a few months until I could decide what to do.
One evening I went out to quilting and I saw one of the other ladies and the way she had finished her quilt off. I loved it, and I asked her if I could blatantly copy it, and being the lovely lady that she is, she let me.
I first made lots of flying geese. Excuse the crappy photo, that was taken with my Ipod which is difficult for me to focus.
I then did a quick cream border around the outside of the quilt, just to make the blocks pop a little more. I wanted them to 'float' a little.
And then, I used one of my copious amounts of dusky pink fabrics to make a small border. I believe that is called a 'peeper'.
So far so good.
I made the flying geese intentionally shorter than the rows, which meant I had to finish each row off with a cream buffer. I really wanted just the look of flying geese, not too much to be overpowering.
And here is the finished result. You like?
Another flimsy bites the dust. Finally, I think I'm getting my finishing mojo happening.
(I refuse to tell you what I've started in the meantime).
