Flying Geese Mini Quilt

Pastels 1

I am really drawn to sweet floral prints. Some of my favourite collections are Flower Sugar and Old New 30’s, both produced by Lecien Fabrics. They release new collections each year and the prints all work so well together.

I gathered some of my favourite pretty florals and made flying geese blocks. I used a BlocLoc ruler to square up and trim the small flying geese blocks which made for accurate piecing.

I selected fabrics with low contrast, and stitched them together in a clock wise direction. With some simple quilting and a ticking stripe binding, it has become a cute mini quilt or a Mug Rug for the sewing room. It measure 6 1/2 inches square. Flying Geese 2

    I love it when collections work really well together, i love Bonnie and Camille and so many of their colours run through all their collections too. This is a sweet mug rug. x

      I totally agree Kay! Bonnie and Camille is a great example as their fabrics always look gorgeous together.

      Thanks Susan! My son gave me the Easel for Mother’s Day back in 1999 with a picture he had painted at Kindy 🙂

    Lisa and Sarah, you find such delicious fabrics, and make such pretty and practical little projects. With nine of my eleven grandchildren being girls ranging in age from five to eighteen, whenever the need a gift I go straight to your website. I am never disappointed and save myself so much time looking elsewhere, (and giving myself more time to stitch). Beautiful !!
    Best Wishes, Jennifer Moore, Adelaide Hills, SA
