My 2nd entry into the Blogger’s Quilt Festival 2017.
Spurring my return to quilting was this small piece. I had these fabrics leftover from a bag making summer a few years ago. I held on to them, knowing I could eke out some other item from them. And I did.
I decided to hand quilt this piece to see how far my quilting skills had fallen with a 17 year hiatus. Far, they had fallen far! But I wasn’t going to sweat the small stuff, done is better than perfect. So I just went with whatever my hands and needle produced. This is not for judge or jury, just to put a smile on my face when I walk past it.
When I got to the backing I was left short with the striped fabric so some ingenuity, and the fact I had leftover geese, allowed the creative juices to thrive. I love the back as much as the front!
The size ended up about 14″ square, just perfect for this table in our hallway. This will be my February topper, now I just need to make 10 more themes to round out the year. I just finished a Fall topper.
