|St. Andrews-by-the-Sea, |
Those who have been following along for awhile know that I spoke at my guild in June about the online quilt world and modern quilting. I was blown away when Robin emailed me in early July with this completed top below.
I had shared my Modern Block Monday blocks and the book 99 Modern Block, in which this fabulous Double Flying Geese block by Lynne Goldsmith of Lily's Quilts is included. I have been too chicken to try this block yet, but Robin loved it so much that she went out, bought the book and put this quilt-as-you-go top together in two weeks! I love those colours. Beautiful!
Robin emailed me asking for advice on the border. She was a little stumped for a modern border that would complement, but not overwhelm the Double Flying Geese blocks. I sent her a few suggestions, including this preferred one:
Last week, Robin sent me photos of the completed quilt, which is a baby present for a friend's second child. This is Flying Geese for Beatrice (Beatrice pronounced in French rhymes with geese). Isn't it fabulous? Love! I love that Robin liked my suggestion, but took it in her own direction (ha ha)!
A close up of the quilting:
Robin, thank you so much for letting me share this with folks. You did an amazing job with this quilt!
Happy quilting, all and I'll be back in a week or so.
