FO: Whirly Geese

I took some time this weekend to do a little quilting and binding.

I know I’ve said it before, but I love tacking down the binding on a quilt by hand. Maybe it’s because I know the project is almost done. But I find it much like knitting… mindless and therapeutic.  And when you’re done…

You’ve got a practical, usable work of art! While I have a great time coordinating fabrics for quilts, true scrap quilts will always have a special place in my heart.

And as you can see, this one has A LOT of scraps. There’s a total of 48 blocks, that’s 384 individual geese blocks. It seems like a lot, but as I made them as Leaders and Enders, this one was built without me barely even trying! It’s a nice size too… about 68″x78″, perfect for a twin bed, or an extra layer for a double.

For the back, I had more of that fabulous yellow fabric (super clearance bin find). I know yellow is not everyone’s cup of tea, but to me this would be like waking up to pure sunshine every morning! And I’ve got a fair bit of it left too, you’ll see this fabric again!

    Oh, my heart!! I am in love with that one. I like doing binding too which reminds me that I actually have something to bind. You’d think with all this social isolation I’d have plenty of time to get stuff done but keeping The Mister from climbing the walls is a full time job. Sigh….

    That is the most awesome scrap quilt ever! Your sashing, border, binding and backing fabrics are just perfect. I absolutely love yellow and think it is a happy color. That quilt certainly makes you smile when you see it.
