It's a Finish! Wandering Geese


It's a Finish! 
Wandering Geese
80 x 80


 I started making Flying Geese from 4.5 inch scraps in 2016.  I made a few each month with the body in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge (RSC) color of the month.  If the color was a primary color I used a secondary color for the wings and vice versa. 
I kept making scrappy Flying Geese part way through 2017. I was never really sure what I was going to do with the Flying Geese when I started making them since my intent was really to use up scraps. A couple of blog readers commented that Flying Geese make nice star points.  And so that's how the Flying Geese wandered into some Stars. 


 I love that quite a variety of novelty fabrics play so well together and that I used up most of my bright 4.5 inch scraps. 

I quilted it on my DSM with some loops and stars. 
I made a scrappy binding. 


And I had a big piece of colorful sale fabric in my stash that I used for the backing.

That was a great idea suggested by blog readers. What a super way to use the Flying Geese, they have turned into a gorgeous quilt. Just saturated colour!

I really don't know how you do it, but you always end up with an interesting and unusual quilt. Somehow it always works for you when you just make a pile of geese, or whatever, and then sew them together sometime in the future. This one really came out very well. Maybe some of us waste too much time planning what we will do before we begin? Has me wondering. ---"Love"

Congratulations, Cathy!
I agree, delicious colors and contrast.
Those geese told you how they wanted to go together didn't they?
