Flying Geese With Rainbow

Once again I was attracted to that stack of fabric chosen for the Colourburst challenge. I wanted to see what a colour array of flying geese would be like against the dark grey background. Initially, I planned to have just the one strip of flying geese and use the dark grey for the rest of the quilt. But when I started putting it together, that seemed too stark for a baby quilt so I added the three long strips of green, blue and purple. For some reason, even though there are orange triangles in the flying geese array, a long orange strip didn’t look nice so I left it out.

The flying geese units are 5 inches by 2 3/4 inches, and the quilt measures 34 by 35 inches. I quilted feathers on the wide grey strips, ocean waves on the coloured strips, and quilted in the ditch for the flying geese.

I am so pleased with the outcome and looking forward to using flying geese again, and also continuing to work with this beautiful set of colours.
