Not only do I love this quilt, but it was made by one of the nicest group of quilters and ladies I've ever met. Our Bee started 2 years ago within the St Louis Modern Quilt Guild. I'd never participated in a Bee before and joined pretty much to make friends within the larger group. You see, I'm introverted by nature and always feel more comfortable in a smaller group. And did I hit the jackpot. Couldn't love hanging out with these girls more!
Our theme for this year was different techniques. My assignment was to incorporate triangles into my design. And did I ever. Eleven Flying Geese in each block.
The quilt was inspired by this one made by Lotje. It was a challenge to break the design down into a block for each Bee member. I shared my tutorial here.
The color inspiration came from Madrona Road by Violet Craft. The backing is a composition of most of the leftovers.
As I usually do ~ lots of fabrics added from the stash...
The perfect binding turned out to be this dot from Florence.
