Getting caught up ...

My husband's middle son Doug married Kate back in December … technically, you have a year to give them a wedding present … right ?!?!?


When I asked John what he thought they would want … he suggested this one, which I had made as a wedding present late last year for my cousin's daughter.

If you recall … last time the pattern was because I hadn't made all my geese the same size (they were out by mm … but mm count when there are 20 of them in a row).

But this time … I bought a template!  It helped … they weren't perfect, but do believe that they were all a bit more uniform this time.


I like the simplicity of the quilt … and was thrilled to have the Juki back in the house to quilt this on (jury still out on repairs and I will hold off for a few more quilts before I pass judgement again … stay tuned).


Must admit … I am a complete convert to Rachel's zigzag binding technique.  The binding goes on perfectly, quickly and I feel is far more secure than hand stitching.  The zigzag also gives it some visual interest.





Congratulations Doug & Kate!!!

All the best
Lisa
