A few months ago, I shared my first ever paper-pieced project on this blog, my Circle of Flying Geese. I saw the pattern for the first time on Nicole's blog and knew, right then and there, that I had to make one.
Fast forward to now, and I have a finished quilt!
The finished size is about 30" square. I used a rainbow of Kona solids to piece it but then went with a print for the binding. The fabric I used had been sitting in my stash for years and I just fell out of love with it, so thought I could use it as binding, if nothing else.
Now that it's done, I'm almost regretting using it. It screams a little too traditional for the quilt. But hey! I'm not unsewing it. It isn't that bad. :-)
I FMQd paisleys in the background of each block and left the geese, sashing and border unquilted.
And there you have it! My 2nd finish of 2014.
Will be linking this cute little finish at a few places this week:
- Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday
- TGIFF hosted by M-R at Quilt Matters this week
- Quiet Play for Paper-Piecing Party
- Leah Day's for FMQ Project
Have a fabulous weekend and thanks for stopping by!

This is so great! Great job as always. I just love the quilting. You and getting so good! I need to practice different patterns more and get out of my straight line or stipple rut.ReplyDelete
Looks great! I love the color selection!ReplyDelete
I thought I recognized that flying geese design! Beautifully quilted!ReplyDelete
Flying gees are my favorite and the spectrum against a gray background is so appealing. I especially like how you quilted down the background and left the geese "free".ReplyDelete
best from Tunisia,
What a fab circle of flying geese. Your color choices are perfect. This is so pretty. The background really kicks the colors of the geese forward. So nice.ReplyDelete
Love it! I have the Circle of Geese on my list to make, too.ReplyDelete
