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…
