No Blue Geese in My Tropical Garden – A Finish

Early this morning (2 AM?) I finished sewing down the binding on No Blue Geese in my Tropical Garden.  I used the pattern Geese in my Garden by Mary Honas.   My quilt name reflects that there is no blue in the quilt top. At the time I started this quilt it seemed like every quilt  I made had blue in it.

Last month I took it down to Rocking Chair Quilts and rented time on their HQ16.  I loaded the top in sideways so I would have a good run for the feathers I did down the print and black strips.  The quilting is not award winning. At the time, I thought it horrible.  But once it was off the frame and washed, it’s not bad — still won’t win any awards.

The feathers in the top and bottom strip were done starting and stopping as I rolled the quilt up.  I obviously need to practice more with that concept.  Here are a few detail pictures. You should be able to click on them to see them larger.


It measures approximately 58 x 80.

Now to send an e-mail to Finn and let her know I have another finish for the year!
