I have been sewing - I completed my #100days100blocks Tula Pink sampler top and I'm hoping to send that off to be quilted within the next week or so. And I finished another project on my Q4 2016 finish-along list: Heading South.
|The photos are pretty bad - we seriously haven't had a sunny day here in almost 2 weeks and it's pretty dark outside by the time I get home from work.|
I used Kona Charcoal for the background and nothing but scraps for the flying geese. These blocks were so much fun to make and I posted a couple of progress shots on Instagram...
I considered doing some fancy quilting in the geese and a filler in the background, but in the end, I decided to quilt it with wavy lines running vertically - sort of to follow the movement of the arrows.
- Pattern: Heading South by Amanda Castor of Material Girl Quilts
- Size: 64" x 68"
- Fabrics: the greese are all scraps and the background is Kona Charcoal
- Thread: Pieced with Aurifil #2605 (50 wt) and quilted with Aurifil #2630 (40 wt)
- Recipient: My hubby claimed that one as soon as the top was finished
And here it is now being well loved.
Will be linking up at Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday and at Devoted Quilter for TGIFF.
And this is project number 2 on my Q4 2016 FAL list so I will be linking there too!
