Geese in the Pond Quilt

Once I had all the blocks cut, the piecing went pretty quickly. It's currently 60" x 60", which feels a little small for me, so I'm undecided as to whether to add an additional row or border(s). Directions for the Goose in the Pond block can be downloaded here.

This is my favorite block. The background is a map print from the Priory Square collection, in a metallic bronze, which I was so excited to work with when I first saw it.

I'm linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced! There are so many cool projects in the making over there...

Friday Finish - Bliss Sampler Quilt!

I just finished machine quilting this top, which I had pieced way back in December 2011. Seriously -- sheesh! Time flies. You can find all the details in my original post, but the short story is the fabric is from an old collection by Bonnie and Camille called Bliss.

I quilted it using an all-over pattern called Royal Plumes. I had thoughts about doing some custom quilting, but the reality is that I'm always a little short on time when it comes to my own work.

The backing is from a collection called Mod Studio by Holly Zollinger for Riley Blake. Not sure where you can get this print nowadays.

And finally, some of my favorite blocks:
