Bloggers Quilt Festival

I am presenting  Flock O' Geese!
I saw this quilt in Elm Creek Quilts books and had to make one myself! I just love the little triangles. And I made it from some leftover Urban Couture fabrics.

What I learned most is to iron..actually "Press" Press, Press.

I just love the little triangles! And another thing that was helpful is measure 1/4 away from the point. It is very important that you always leave 1/4 alowance or else you will just sew off the tip of the triangles...and again, press-not iron.

I also quilted and binded this myself. What I really wanted to do is straight line quilting but did not know where to run the lines thru so I just did an allover stippling on the long arrm.

The binding is also from the Urban couture line and I did a blind stitch on the back of the binding.
Oh and It's kinda exciting to mention that I entered this is my local County Fair and it won 1st place in it's category.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read about my quilt...Make sure to check out all the others.
