Wild and Goosey Quilt
She’s FINALLY done.
This one has been YEARS in the making.
Bonnie Hunter designed the foundation pieced block-which is 1/4 of the block arrangement I chose. When combined with 3 other blocks and some inner sashings, you get what I have below. I then used 3-inch wider sashings and a 9-patch to surround each block. Friend Betsy Maislen suggested the low-volume border, and I added in narrow strips of the grey randomly as I went along. This project is all scrappy, of course.
I quilted with a light grey thread and bound with a light grey solid. The pantograph is Anne Bright’s 12-inch Simple Feathers pattern, which is a favorite of mine to lay down a curved, overall design that does not intrude.
I love, love, love the backing. Betsy Maislen brought this one in to my life as well, and I bought enough to have for a backing down the road.
The block is very effective and dramatic, but it takes me (at least) a long time to make one of them. Still, I love them, so the effort was worth it.
