Progress

I have been busy quilting and have made some real progress on my current projects.  I finished quilting my flying geese quilt.  All I need to do is figure out the binding color/fabric and I'll be all set.  Anyone have any suggestions?



I also started working on the quilting for the Sunrise quilt.  I started with the pillow shams and was able to finish one last night.  I finished the quilting and piecing of it right before Downton Abbey and Sherlock and spent my time during the shows hand-stitching the binding.  I have one more sham to go and basting/quilting/binding of the full-size quilt.




Here is the back of the sham.

  1. I love your flying geese, its lovely! I vote for a deep red/pink ... whichever is in your quilt, cant quite tell on the screen put it would be great to make that color pop!

  2. I love your flying geese quilt. I think any of the softer colours from the quilt would work for a binding, maybe a blue or green. Then it would be different from the white but still not take away from the beautiful center.

  3. I think this quilt would lend itself really well to a scrappy binding if you have leftover scraps of the flying geese fabrics. If not, I'd go with a deep purple or deep pink (coordinating with some of those darker fabrics in the geese).

  4. What a lovely quilt! I think a nice green would look great as binding.

  5. Your flying geese are awesome! I think they are one of my favorite blocks. I see a scrappy binding... using the colors in the geese. And your pillow shams are so cute, too! Great colors.

  6. Love your flying geese quilt - my thoughts are that a coloured binding will detract from the design so I'd think about binding in the same fabric that you've sashed with - let those geese speak for themselves! Fab sham too :D

  13. love the geese, and of course when in doubt, I always go with green on a binding, or I agree that scrappy would also look great against all of the white. the sham looks so fun too!

  20. Ooooh I love these geese! The colors are lovely together. I vote for either a pink binding or stripes. You honestly cannot go wrong with stripes. P.S. I am always happiest when I finish a quilt just in time for Downton or Sherlock! YAY!

  21. Love the flying geese and the quilting on the quilt. As for those pillow shams, they just cheer up a cold winter's day.

  22. I seriously love that quilt! wow. As for binding I suggest using a color that is in the quilt but not a lot, or that doesn't stand out. Like the jade/teal color. The shams turned out lovely!

  23. Beautiful quilt! I'm thinking a prairie points binding using the quilt's fabric scraps might be pretty. I also love the pillow sham!!

  25. Love the flying geese! It is amazing how versatile they are! I really like your layout. The fabric and quilting are wonderful! I have not done flying geese and every time I see them I think - I am going to have to get on that!! :)

  26. Found you via WIP Wednesday. I love the rainbow pillowshams and the flying geese are great. Normally people use colour for the geese, I love that this is the plain part on your quilt

  29. The flying geese quilt is lovely. I'd vote for a binding using some of the left over fabrics (if you have some).

  30. Gorgeous pillow shams. I am a sucker for rainbow strips! Love that striped binding. Congrats on finishing the quilting on the flying geese quilt! I would suggest a green that matches the fabrics used in the quilt for the binding.

  31. Stopping in from Let's Bee Social and it's nice to have found your blog. I love the pillow sham!! The quilt is pretty too. What about a black & white Heath print or a small-scale polka dot, white on charcoal? Black might be too harsh but something close would frame your quilt nicely, at least I think it would! Enjoyed my visit. Thanks!

  32. I love that flying geese quilt!!!

  33. I suggest a scrappy binding - it's not going to show that much, but will frame it nonetheless. Love it!

  34. Hand-sewing binding during an episode of Downton Abbey is one of my favorite ways to spend Sunday evening! Love the flying geese, and the sham, too!

  35. Maybe do a striped red binding:) It's stunning!!

  36. I say go with a scrappy binding to pull in the colors of those geese.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Lovely quilt!

    For the binding, I'd do a white/background binding, with scrappy faux piping from some of the fabrics used for the geese! It would echo the squares/geese in a similar proportion.

  38. Love the flying geese quilt. Suggest you use a solid bold colour to bind it like ink blue or red as the quilt has shades of blue and red.
    The quilt is absolutely beautiful. i am so motivated to make one of my own :)
