Here’s the mini quilt I made for the Good Ol’ Summertime Swap. It will start its journey today to my partner in the States.

I used paper piecing strips that I created to stitch the mini flying geese units. They finish at 2″ wide by 1″ high. It went together really quickly and accurately doing them this way.


For the quilting, I stitched around each goose unit and the sashing, then did free-motion loop stippling in the border. I had tried to free-motion the stitch in the ditch, but it was awful, so I ended up using the walking foot instead.


This is the first quilt where I hand-stitched the binding to the back of the quilt.

    You did a great job on this! Your partner will be happy to receive this little lovely! I love flying geese, but rarely make them….maybe I should try an all geese quilt?
