Good evening! I'm dusting off the blog for a special post! One of my most favorite quilt designs is featured in a new book from Stash Books and Love Patchwork and Quilting magazine, called Love Flying Geese. All of the designs have previously been featured in the magazine, but it's a great addition to your library!
My design, which was previously called Geese in the Forest (now Light and Dark), is on page 11. This design was inspired by carpet I saw on vacation several years ago. I loved the pairing of the half square triangles and the flying geese, and the interesting look it gave. I used a fun collection from Art Gallery Fabrics to complete the quilt, and I love it!
Possibly the best compliment I received, is that I no longer own this quilt! The then-editor of the magazine loved it so much (and it matched her living room!), so she asked to purchase it. I need to find time to make one of my own!
The design is quick and easy to piece - half square triangles, and four-at-a-time flying geese!
There are MANY fun designs in this book, and I'm thrilled to offer an e-book version for giveaway! Just leave a comment telling me what your favorite quilt block/design is, and I'll choose a winner Friday night. Check out the rest of the blog hop too!
