    216 Flying Geese

    I made this quilt for a couple that are moving away after many years of serving in our church. I was inspired by a Miss Rosie pattern in her book "Spice of Life". I drafted the church to fit the center block. Her pattern has a house. I'm calling this quilt "On our way to church". Those flying geese in the sashing circling the church inspired the name. Its a simple pattern except for those pesky flying geese.

    I wanted to do some custom quilting, but found out they were leaving sooner than I thought. Made it in 10 days. I literally was stitching down my tag 5 minutes before I had to present it.

    I bet they were overwhelmed when you presented it. It is a wonderful quilt and your piecing is fantastic. And I think the quilting is perfect for it. Love the cross hatch behind the church and the swirls in the rest. It will be a beautiful reminder for them of their time at your congregation.

    That is just beautiful. Were they totally blown away when you gave it to them?

    That come out to be a lovely quilt. There is nothing more motivating then a deadline. I am sure they will treasure it always and remember the happy memories with your church.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
