If you would like to host TGIFF, there are lots of dates available for the remainder of 2020. You can sign up here.
You may remember from a previous blog post that I took an EQ8 workshop at QuiltCon Austin. I designed something simple to practice the techniques I learned and then actually make the design.
This piece finishes at 28 inches, using Kona Nightfall and Tangerine. If you start at the top left-hand corner, the path follows the direction of each flying geese block.
This was another opportunity to practice big stitch hand quilting (which I also learned at QuiltCon Austin). I tried a new-to-me perle cotton -- Presencia perle cotton size 12 #7567 Medium Orange Spice that I purchased from Mad About Patchwork.
My friend Dena thought it would be interesting to put a triangle in the binding. I must stop consulting with her, but she always has great ideas. 😉 I could have added a triangle the full width of the binding, but then it wouldn't look like a triangle. But how to add a tiny triangle???? I was intrigued, so I played around with some scraps. Even after I thought I had it correct on the good binding, I still had to make an adjustment. It worked!!
I don't have a specific plan for this quilt, but I'm thinking it may make an appearance on a wall in my house.
Another photo of the binding triangle because it's so darn cute. 😊
