Phew! I finished my sister's flying geese quilt just in the nick of time for her arrival over the weekend! I even had to do some hand stitching for the binding during the daytime!? which is kind of weird for me. I'm used to enjoying that task leisurely in the evening's while watching something on TV - like every quilter does, right?
I'm so glad it's finished now, pressure's off! It's not something I would have thought of for myself but I do like the look of it, and actually I like it loads more now looking back at the photo's while writing this post, though to be honest I would have liked to have swapped around a couple rows to change the colour placement of it a little. But she seems to like it, so that's the main thing! and I always find it's so hard making something for someone else's style.
I backed it in Pam Kitty Love grey dots, which has a grid background so I thought it tied in quite nicely with the some of the checkered and gingham fabric from the top. I used the same fabric for the binding too, I haven't done that before - so I really like the look of it blending in for a change and not being such a feature. For the quilting I did some straight line stitching up and down the triangles to make a zig-zag. It looks really good from the back with that style, unfortunately I didn't snap a picture as I had to take these photo's in about 5 seconds before they were leaving!
Hope you're all having a great week! I'll be back working on other fun projects to share with you soon :) xo
