"Flying Home" from Mary Grubbs

 

 

I made this project from a "Block of the Month" design from Piece by Piece, a quilt shop in Appleton, WI.  I bought it all at one time, and brought it back to central Europe to piece.  Then I sent it back to MN to be longarm-quilted.  Because I wanted to use it on our bed, I enlarged the basic design by adding Flying Geese blocks to the width side.  This was a learning project in many ways, and a lot of fun, with several different techniques, not the least of which was learning to use the "Quilt in a Day," flying geese ruler--it worked great!  The flying geese in this quilt are 4" x 8".

When I viewed this quilt I said "wow". What a great idea to enlarge the quilt with the flying geese. They look as if they belong to the original pattern. Thanks for sharing.

Wow!  Normally I'm not into dark colors, but I love your quilt!  What a beautiful job you've done.  Adding the flying geese was a very bright idea.  Thanks for the Show and Tell.

Your quilt is beautiful.  I love flying geese but I hate to make them.

Love all the different patterns and fabrics if your quilt. Sometime making a large quilt can be so repitious. You've inspired me to mix things up a bit.
