48" x 20" Table runner
Second commission quilting request. Made this pattern before but this time it is to be BIGGER. Enjoyed making it much much more this time as I knew I will love the final results even though using fabric and pattern that does not tickle my fancy. Changed the method for the geese sashing to 3D for a change and love the effect.
Beautifully done! Quiltdiva ...Can you explain what you mean about the geese sashing- out of my experience zone;)))
Mymble , There a few ways to make flying geese. For the points of the stars (which are just flying geese) I used the method from the pattern which makes 4 geese at a time with no waste. (second detailed on this link below)
For the geese that go around the stars I made them with a different method that makes them 3D. Also called One seam flying geese. There is more cutting as you make one goose at a time but a lot less sewing and no need mess about to drewing guide lines.
Had to laugh when Ricky Tims said an English quilter showed him how to do them. Was it me? lol
Quiltdiva Thank you so much for the links- I think some geese may be in my future- I'll definitely start small;)))- perhaps a small table runner or mat.
Love the look of this runner - are the geese 1" x 2" they certainly appear to be that fine.
