Geese A Flutter baby quilt has been in the works for over a year. Can’t believe that is true. It started with an idea from the Handmade Swap last spring. Soft girly colors for a baby quilt. Shortly after our friends announced they were going to be having a girl.
I started with stacks of flying geese and started building my 4 block units. These come together rather quickly.
Laying out the blocks revealed a small hiccup with my original idea. The quilt would be too narrow.
At the IMQG retreat this winter I added thick borders. So this baby quilt is really more of a lap quilt size.
I chose the Art Gallery butterfly print in my stash as the backing. Using free motion loops I was able to quickly quilt this up. Binding is one of the blue floral prints in the quilt.
Then the quilt sat in my sewing room. It’s been done since May or so. The baby was born in December. I found the quilt while cleaning out my sewing space this summer.
It got a good tumble through the dryer, a new photoshoot, and then wrapped to send.
It’s enjoying snuggles with it’s new owner. While I say it’s my last flying geese quilt for a bit, I doubt I’m done. They make great srappy quilts and come together smoothly.
This is number 14/40 for my baby quilt goal for 2018.
