“A Gaggle of Geese” Quilt

It’s done!

It’s been such a fun project AND is a real stash buster.

I took a chance and used black and white striped binding cut on the bias, and I think that worked really well. The backing is Carrie Bloomston’s 108 inches wide “Newsprint.” Combining “Newsprint” with the black and white bias-cut binding and fairly colorful fabrics is something I like a lot.

I quilted with a medium grey thread that disappeared into the backing fabric and didn’t make any bold statements on the front of the quilt. And I used the Check and Chase Pantograph from Lorien Quilting which added some great texture.

The block is 3 by 6. And now I’m wondering about working with an even larger block. That will probably happen along the quilty road. In any case, this quilt is a delight—big enough to cover a bed well and bright with interesting fabrics.

  1. I just LOVE this quilt Louisa! So cheerful and bright. And I have that same backing fabric, which I also love. Put it on the back of my red and white Bonnie Hunter String Star quilt.
