I have the Patchwork Flying Geese Quilt show you today. The pattern is from Emily Dennis and can be a great stash buster! I used a bundle of half yards to make this beuty. Grab the pattern here! Let's dive in to the Patchwork Flying Geese Quilt!
Scrappy Ruby Star Society Darlings mixed with Bella Solids
I scored this half yard bundle from Ev Quilts when she was still selling fabric. I loved her style of bundles and that she mixed and mingled solids and patterns with ease. Best of both worlds in my opinion. It’s such a great mix that isn’t too overpowering with all patterned fabrics. I love the rust reds, peachy pinks and deep blues.
I had one remaining ½ yard of bella solids remaining from the bundle and thought it would be the perfect binding. Also, when we get to the backing it pulls out some of the baby blues that are in the backing print. Check out how I do my machine binding over on this Campfire Glow Quilt blog post.
For the backing I grabbed my yardage of Food Truck in Turquoise (by Paintbrush Studio) over at Sewing Arts Center. They are wildly quick at shipping and running amazing sales – pretty regulary! I think right now (11/10/21) they are running a 40% off yardage sale! You can’t beat that price!
Have I mentioned how much I love long arm quilting? For this fun quilt I wanted to play off the fun fabrics and keep things simple. I decided to go with the Propel panto from Jess over at the Longarm League and it plays nicely to this party of a quilt!
If you’d like me to help out adding quilting to your quilt check out my long arm quilting information page to send your quilt in! If you have any questions about quilting feel free to email me and I’m more than willing to help you out. There has been some great conversation around sending your quilt to a longarmer. No one’s quilts are perfect and I am happy beyond belief to get to quilt your quilts no matter if it’s your first or 100th quilt!
