Quilted and Bound

Hello Everyone,

I am so pleased, my little quilt "Night Flight" is now quilted and bound! I did it, I made the September 2 deadline. Yippee!

So I wanted to show you before I send it off. It was all because I had this one block that I had made years ago and decided to finish...


The star... I just thought that that needed some simple quilting.


The large flying geese, I felt needed something a little more special. Also, I used variegated thread.


Here is the entire quilt. I used Kona Black for the binding.


I used Terrie Mangat's Knot Dot for the backing. Added the sleeve and the labels.


Finished at 15" X 20". So that is how this unfinished block turned into a quilt. Now on its way to the Original Sewing & Quilt Expo in Chantilly, VA and then will make the rounds to the other locations. It will be part of the NY Metro Mod Guild Exhibit.

Until Next Time...

Colorful, fun, and a great way to make a lonely block feel very special.

Hi Jackie! I love the special quilting on the flying geese!! I've never seen anything like that before. Flying geese has always been one of my favorites (in fact I bookmarked a flying geese design for the Mod CT Quilter's block for next meeting). So glad you were able to resurrect your unfinished block into this lovely art quilt!

Love it! I'll look for it when the Expo visits us here in March. Great job!

It's fabulous Jackie, I esp love that varigated thread, I must try that sometime. The knot fabric is gorgeous. Good on you putting on a label, that is the part I procrastinate on every time. xo

Love the quilting detail on the geese. The variegated thread really brings out the color on this piece.

I just sent a piece out for a challenge before the deadline. Felt good. Now onto the next project!

The variegated thread looks great. With all the colors in the quilt it fits perfectly.
