Okay I have a quilt finished…and it is was on my wip list for this year so yeah me!
I started this quilt last year but it took me while to finish…and if I am honest I had some help. My fabulous friend Lisa did the quilting on this baby using her wonderful Bernina (I have such sewing machine envy it is ridiculous).
The loud, bright colours of this quilt were inspired by my local Shell Service station (aka. gas station). You can find my original post, with the paper piecing pattern I used, here.
And if you look closely you can see some of the handful of blocks that I reversed…that is they have yellow geese with a red background. I used this reverse colour scheme on the back of the quilt too…
I must admit I love how the back turned out and it was so easy to do. I used a couple of sheets of my husbands extra large graph paper (I am hoping he does not notice they are missed!) to make a paper pieced pattern and just sewed away.I may be a little addicted now to putting big versions on the block on the back…we will see how long it lasts!
This baby is now headed to Project Linus to be loved on….
