The Doll Quilt Swap is coming to its deadline and although I had an idea for my partner for a while, I didn't get to the point of starting until recently. I decided on a Circle of Geese block to be framed with more flying geese and this week-end I was chain paper-piecing my geese for the circle until I had my block completed. I raided my batik stash to find a selection of greens for the circle of geese and used a Klona cream from Backstitch for the background.
piece by number. So the central block is finished, I have also made all my geese for the border, I just need to add the borders and get onto the quilting to finish it this week. I hope my partner will like it!
And of course because I like working on more than one project at once, I did more paper piecing to try out a New York Beauty block that I am planning to use for my Sew Sew Modern 4 swap partner. I ordered a lovely rainbow of Rain from Simply Solids earlier in the month that I am going to use for my New York Beauty. I have only made one quarter so far with the templates from Ulas Quiltseite.
Some work in progress that should hopefully get finished soon. Linking to WOW, WIP Wednesday and Needle and Thread Thursday.
