This was one of my last projects in 2016. The binding was finished on New Year’s Eve. Since then I have been working on some items around the house and projects. Plus, I really wanted to wait to show off this quilt after it had been gifted.
More geese made from stash and scrap fabrics. Ahhh….except
There are a couple of OOPS . Can you find them?
It could have been the burn out from working on a bagillion geese blocks between the two quilts. See the previous quilt here. Maybe it was the fabrics that were “straightened up” on a random day. I think it’s important to be honest note not every project is “perfect.” I’m okay with that as a maker. Honestly, you probably wouldn’t notice unless I mentioned it and you did zoom in on the above photo.
The last 5-7 sets of geese on this quilt were just a creative roadblock. In the end I love how it turned out. For the backing I dug into my vintage sheet collection. It’s a great selection especially if you knew the parents, they may be into sports.
Orange solid binding was a great way to wrap up this quilt. That is hand sewn binding on the back. No machine binding this time.
It’s now gone to our friends that are expecting a boy very soon. I hope they use it and enjoy the quilt.
