Dreamin' Vintage Flying Geese Baby Quilt

A Finished Quilt.

Just for fun. A baby girl Flying Geese Quilt.

My FQ bundle of Dreamin' Vintage by Jeni Baker has been patiently waiting to see some sewing action. I love the color palette of this range of fabrics, especially the yellow, orange and pinks! Perfect for a baby girl. As usual, I have added a few of my own fabrics to the mix including a beautiful yellow gingham (which I had been saving for an all yellow quilt - a challenge that still awaits) as well as a larger scale yellow floral fabric:

This yellow floral fabric is from a reclaimed vintage bed linen (a pillow case). It may even be a poly-cotton, but it is in wonderful - like new - condition. I was almost tempted to keep it and use it for its original purpose. I think we need more fabric just like it.

The quilt design is simple - all Flying Geese Units (3 inch x 6 inch finished blocks). I have again used the Flying Geese Bloc-Loc Rulers to oversize and trim the units which takes care of accuracy and perfect points. No stress sewing.

For the back of the quilt as well as for the quilt binding I have used a single print from the Briar Rose collection by Heather Ross; a perfect color palette match for the quilt top. I have quilted the quilt with an all over 1 inch grid which gives the quilt texture and a soft drape. It is currently my favorite way to quilt although I do try not to put a grid on all the quilts.

I am now working on a project to use up some of the fabric scraps that are a direct result of piecing these flying geese units. I do love a scrappy project.

Thank you for stopping by,

  14. It's just delightful. I think perhaps we need you to design fabrics. I can just imagine the most perfect bundle of fabric to make things with.
