Quilting my UFO’s

 

When my sister in law Sandy saw an unfinished Quiltworx feathered star top she said my nephew would love it with all of the colors.  So last weekend I finally pulled it out of the closet, fixed a mistake and loaded it on the frame.

This prompted me to start pulling other tops out and get them quilted.  Since this one, I have completed 1 and loaded another on the frame today.

flying geese tree everlasting

See, I told you I love flying geese. The geese blocks are 1 seam flying geese and tree everlasting are traditional pieced. My quilting skills aren’t as advanced as my piecing skills. Vertical and horizontal lines are easy, its the diagonal lines that I am struggling with.  Really, how do you quilt this many triangles with half the quilt being 3d blocks. You can’t quilt over these flying geese, you’d just be defeating the purpose of the block. After some thought, I decided a vertical line alongside the flying geese would be the way to go and as it turns out the geese look like they are coming off the top. The rest of it I’m just stitching curly q’s which go pretty quick, it will be done tomorrow.  I can’t wait to hang it in the natural light…hope it’s not raining.
