"Going Their Own Way"

Yes, my geese are not flying in any order.  They are flying their own way.  That's why I named it "Going Their Own Way".


I made the flying geese quilt blocks uneven, using the pattern from Kim of the Drunken Flying Geese from the Home Sweet Home Quilt Along.

I created this somewhat similar to each 20" x 20" quilt that I have created for the Series Focus Through the Prism. What I mean by similar,is that my plan was to always use black with the color and to create a distorted version of the quilt block or at least an uneven balance to the quilt block.


I selected the yellow hand dyed fabric from Cherrywood Fabrics for this quilt challenge and then added the yellow print and then the black fabric to really make the yellows pop!





I used some of the cutaways from the corners to create a couple tiny geese. I assembled them in uneven rows.


I selected Gun Metal Grey and Canary Yellow for the quilting threads.  I used two layers of batting.  I layered them with 80/20 batting on the bottom and poly on the top.


I decided to quilt it with a small meandering for the background. It filled the space very nicely.


I quilted in Marcia and 2015.


I love the wiggle line quilting on the geese.


And the wiggle lines around the outside of the each goose.


Here's a full view.


And the backside.






On September 15th, I presented my quilts at a Trunk Show in Viroqua, Wisconsin.  I proudly shared my quilt even though I had not completed the binding.


I proudly shared all five of them!  I love how they look together.


I am linking it up over at Kim's Persimon Dreams Blog for Project Quilting's Focus Through the Prism Quilt Challenge Series. Hop over and check out all the quilts.
