Another quilt I 'finished' was one that I owed my sister Brenda. When I went to visit her in October she mentioned how much she would like to make a quilt that she saw in the Quilt Sampler magazine (spring/summer 2007). What was holding her back was that she was not much into piecing and the background of the quilt was pieced. This is the finished piece as it appeared in the magazine:
So I volunteered to make the background and send it to her to complete the applique portion. Among all the fabric I walked away with at the time (See Here - Runaway Stash) were a few charm packs to use for this project. When Brenda dropped by for a visit at the begining of March I saw the opportunity to get this project off the ground.
Before she left I had the large background completed but I still needed to work on the flying geese and the small squares on the top and bottom of the background.
Well this one did not sit around very long. I did work on getting this one out the door sooner than later. I knew that when I finished it the quilt would still be half done but I don't like letting people down and especially my sister who never let's me down. I put this project on the top of my list of things to finish and last weekend I completed it!
Now it's off to Brenda's house for the finishing applique.
If you liked this pattern and don't want to buy the back issue from American Patchwork and Quilting, you can find it at The Cotton Shop which is the shop that was featured in the magazine and who designed the quilt.
