I made this flying geese quilt improv-style for the MQG Riley Blake challenge.
Olivia's mom is a colleague. Olivia is obviously the Gisele Bundchen of baby quilt models.
The challenge fabric colors were not my scene, so I bleached the fabric. The blues dimmed and suddenly it was all sherbet-y goodness.
The colors called to mind a print I've been hoarding, which I used as the backing. I drew my solids from this inspiration.
I did a free motion leaf pattern all over, and bound with a grey-and-white stripe.
I didn't have high hopes for this challenge, but was in love by the time I finished.
Couldn't have gone to a cuter recipient!
