Excited to share this Flying Geese quilt today. This was made as a gift for my uncle.
When designing this quilt, I kept going back and forth between using shades of brown or shades of grey. I'm so glad I decided to use both because I think it adds a layer of dimension and keeps things interesting. Although, I think it's that column in the middle, featuring the more greige geese and they white diamond, that brings it all together.
I'm very pleased with the quilting. Originally I thought I'd just do vertical lines. I quilted about five before I decided that wasn't working for me. This quilt has so much negative space; and, while straight lines are my favorite, this one just needed something different. So I ripped those lines, stared at the quilt for about a week, and then decided on this. It's still straight lines, just on the diagonal and quilted at different angles.
I couldn't sign off without sharing an image of the back. I used a wide back print from the Eclectic Elements collection by Tim Holtz. Not only does it include shades of brown and grey used in the flying geese, but it was a time saver since I didn't have to piece my backing or worry about straight seam lines on the back.
The quilt finally arrived in LA this past Monday and I am happy to report that my uncle was pleased with his gift.
