Inspired by Lee Heinrich's Sugar Snow Quilt from Vintage Quilt Revival (page 63) I made various sizes of flying geese and put them into "Migration Remix" blocks (from Love Patchwork and Quilting, issue 11). The remaining geese I sewed into rows.
I worked with graph paper to arrange the blocks into a 60 x 72 inch grid. And then the fun began!
I quilted this over about 3 days with lots of thread (Aurifil 2021) and had a blast. Not perfection...just fun!
I used a bit of each of the challenge fabrics in the otherwise white binding. I sewed a Michael Miller selvage, along with my label, into the binding. I used cotton batting from Pellon because they were a sponsor of Sewtopia. It drapes beautifully and I will use it again.
I'm calling this quilt Making Friends for two reasons:
- First - the obvious - I made lots of new friends at Sewtopia.
- Second - after 15 months I have finally made friends with my Handiquilter!
Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts Finish it up Friday. Have a great weekend!
