Big Fluffy Flying Geese

First, let me explain the name.  Big Fluffy because the white fabric is a type of chenille fabric.  Very soft and fluffy.  Yes, once again it was a mess to work with, but oh so worth it!  It’s wonderful to lay on – like for watching tv.  Flying Geese is the name of the pieced portion of the quilt.  So, I put the two together and it came out – Big Fluffy Flying Geese.  Works for me.  I made the quilt top at the Indiana State Quilt Guild winter retreat in Nashville, IN.  Once home and unpacked, I put this on the quilting machine and quilted it in a couple hours.  But let me tell ya, even though I used variegated thread in the top thread and in the bobbin (bottom thread) I couldn’t tell where I had aleady quilted!  I even turned off the light in the room and just used the light on the machine to see if that helped – no such luck.  It was more of trying to remember where I had already sewed.  But, as you can see, it turned out great!

Also, this was my attempt at “Modern Quilting” which is a new style in the quilting world.  It uses lots of negative space, solid colors, and big bold designs.  Even though it’s out of my comfort range, I think I did ok.

Here is a picture of the back of the quilt…

I mentioned earlier that I had trouble seeing the quilting thread from the top, but as you can see from the back detail, I think I did just fine…
