I made this quilt for my nephew Mr. C for his wedding. His wife's favorite color is sea green. I only had two fabrics that were sea green, so I went shopping and found six more. The background is five different light grays.
I made the flying geese four at a time using the no-waste method. They ended up a funny size, because I cut the large squares out at nine inches to make the most of my fabric. I used the math found here to figure out how big to cut the small squares.
I added a narrow border so that the points wouldn't be cut off by the binding. It was a Grunge fabric with hints of sea green. It finishes about 60 by 72 inches.
I quilted it on the Bernina Q24 with a large spiral design.
I love how it turned out.
I named the quilt Sea Breeze because of the colors and the geese flying in the wind.
It is a good thing that sea green isn't my favorite color because this quilt would have been hard to give away otherwise. ;)
The bride and groom loved the quilt.
Have you used the no-waste method for flying geese?
P.S. I will be linking up with some of the fun parties on my sidebar. Check them out for more quilty inspiration.
