Accuquilt ~ Modern Organic Flying Geese Quilt

It's another finished quilt!


I really enjoyed making this quilt; not only because I got to use a  fabric cutter to cut out all of the triangles but also for the fabric play.  It's messy business pulling fabric from stash, auditioning, arranging and re-arranging the fabrics of choice, and then of course changing my mind, but it is definitely one of my favorite parts of quilt making.


Fabrics used include:

And for the back of the quilt I have used another print from Organic Marine by Dan Stiles for Birch.   These high quality organic fabrics have truly been a pleasure to work with and combine together as a fun collection of marine prints to make a great little boy (or girl!) quilt.

 For binding fabric I have chosen a blue and white pin stripe (by A Day in the Country ~ available locally in a great range of colors from GJ Discount Fabrics).  It perfectly matches the other blues used in the quilt and adds the perfect edge/frame to this nautical themed quilt.



The finished quilt measures 40.5 inches x 50 inches
and has now been listed in my Etsy Store - SOLD

  12. particularly love the backing. I have to say I'm so jealous of all the go-baby cutters I've seen around blogland. i do't believe one of those things came to New Zealand but gosh they look great.

  19. I think this is my favourite so far, though I have thought that every time I see one of your finished quilts. This one has inspired me to plan my own flying geese quilt (my very first!)

    Did you just quilt it in straight lines?

  20. You are inspiring Rita. Lovely bright and happy quilt and snapped up just like that! :)
    Can you tell us what thread length you opt for when quilting the top?

  21. Wow, I love how modern the quilt is with such a traditional pattern.

  23. While it may be messy to pull from your stash, it is also fun, especially with a stash like yours!
