Sew Some Love

Welcome to the Sew Some Love linkup!  Please link-up any post about a project you're sewing for charity.

 Recently a quilter named Jannette sent in a few tops to be finished for CiL. You may remember her green stars quilt from a couple weeks ago.  I wanted to show you another one of hers I've been working on. This quilt has neat 3D flying geese, different from what I've get seen before.

These pictures were taken before I put the binding on, so you can see how the middle of the goose is caught in one seam and the bottom gets caught in another seam leaving the "wings" free.

Sorry for the crappy night-time photo, but here's how the geese look all sewn down and lined up. Isn't it cool?  I'm looking forward to showing off this quilt is a future Friday post.

Covered in Love has been so blessed by donations from quilters, I want you all to see what each other have going on!  For purposes of the linky, I'm going to define "charity" really generally.  If you're sewing a quilt for you co-worker's mom with cancer or your friend's uncle who lost his home, that totally counts!  Anything you're sewing out of the goodness of your heart for someone outside you immediate circle of family and friends.

  1. That's a fun, FAST way to make Flying Geese. A friend taught me that method several years ago, but I haven't used it for an entire quilt... yet!!

  2. Neat! I think those are the same flying geese I tried on my 3-D Play Mat. They are sort of like half of a Five Minute Block, right? You can also roll the wings back like a cathedral windows block, because they are a bias edge fold.
