My first QUILT COMPLETED + Quilt Linky Party

 And here it is . . .

My flying geese in flight.   The wind was blowing.  :)


45" x 42"





Yeah, I know it looks washed, but I didn't know I was suppose to baste my quilt.  :)  LOL


Mitered corners and hand stitched binding.


3D flying geese using a one seam process.


Backside.  Simple straight stitch. 



Perfect for NC temperatures.




 Perfect for morning play. 




The fabrics used for this quilt are from the Monaluna Taali collection, and the white is Cloud9 solid white.  All can be purchased from Cedar House Fabrics.


NOW IT'S TIME TO PARTY 

 THIS IS A QUILTING LINK PARTY TO CELEBRATE MY FIRST QUILT!  LINK UP OLD OR NEW QUILTS, TUTORIALS, FREE PATTERNS,  BLOCKS, FABRIC GIVEAWAYS!  IT WOULD BE REALLY NICE IF YOU LINKED ME TO YOUR POST USING A HYPERLINK WITH MY NAME.  :)


HAPPY STITCHING!

  12. Your quilt looks awesome! And your binding looks perfect. I just wrote a post yesterday (and linked it here) about one of my first quilts that I just redid the binding on since my first quilt binding didn't quite work out. Thanks for hosting a link party.

  15. I sure wish I had a quilt so I could link up. I made one, about 20 years ago, so it wouldn't look pretty enough to show. If this is your first quilt you have definitely found your niche. So very pretty! Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration at Sunday's Best Par.tay! PS - following you on Linky Followers.

  18. Which pattern did you use? I intended to make a quilt with the couple hundred napkins my husband and I made for our wedding, but three years later I'm still looking for the perfect pattern ;)

  19. Adorable quilt - love the 3D flying geese - never seen that before - is there a pattern you can share please. It looks like folded triangles that have their base stitched inside a seam and the peaks are caught down with the quilting. Fabulous fabrics and backing. For a first quilt this is terrific.
