Another new baby means another new baby quilt!
Bright colors on gray was requested for this one so I used these Modern Solids 2 by Alissa Haight Carlton that I had in my stash. (A few colors are still available here.) The three grays are from different Carolyn Friedlander lines.
I started this quilt by making flying geese in a three different sizes. For some reason I just couldn't get them to all fly together in a direction that pleased me. Then the Modern Quilt Guild started their block of the month lessons in October and the littlest geese all sorted themselves out in Double T Blocks. (I'll use the other geese another time.) I brought a little more color in with a checkered border - not so modern, but I think it works here.
I used my walking foot to quilt straight lines about 3/8" apart which is, conviently, the width of the foot. This quilt is 40" wide so that computes to 106 lines of quilting - phew!
The backing is this beautiful Flock print from Michael Miller Fabrics, also from my stash.
The binding is two sided. This is the second time I've used my friend Pam's tutorial. Her measurements work perfectly.
All those quilting lines sure make for a beautiful drape!
Wishing everyone a very happy holiday!
