Quilting My Flying Geese November 25, 2010

Posted by Pam in KC in No Blue Geese.

I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving.  Today kicks off a week of vacation.  I don’t have to be back at work until the 6th.  I plan to use this time off to make significant progress on several of my quilts which are close to being finished.

Next Tuesday I have time reserved on a long arm.  I’ve decided to take “No  Blue Geese in My Tropical Garden”.  Instead of loading it top to bottom, I’m going to load it side to side as illustrated below:

In the black inner borders and the tropical print, I’m planning on doing a string of feathers.  I know that they will be nearly impossible to see – especially since I plan to use black thread — but since these will be my first feathers, I don’t know that I want them seen.

The geese, I plan on outlining and running a squiggle through.

That leaves the piano key borders and the cornerstones.

I could do the same thing on the cornerstones as the strip of geese — but I haven’t figured out how to do it continuously.

As for the piano keys, I have no idea, so I’m open to suggestion.  And yes, I plan to turn the quilt to get the top and bottom borders.

In the meantime, I’ve got to finish up the quilting and borders on Chain of Stars and put in some time on the Double Wedding Ring.  For that, I’ve borrowed my niece’s Harry Potter video collection to watch/listen to while I’m hand quilting.
