Flying in Formation

Monday, February 21, 2011
Flying geese anyone?


My quilt "Flying in Formation" is in the April/May Issue of McCalls Quick Quilts!

Last spring I was inspired by flying geese and I drew up a few designs. I had this one in my notebook and couldn't find the right prints to put it together. It almost never made it's way out of my notebook until I decided to try and make it with solids... and voila!

Quilted by me
