I finished up the second of my Geese on a String Quilts. These are going to be presents for the childcare kiddos for Christmas. I’m so happy to be this far along in my gift finishing. I have four quilts I’m trying to get to get done and this one marks #3 as being done. YAHOO!! It always feels good to be ahead of schedule.
This one looks much like the first one I did only this one has more purple accents than pink like the first one had.
Personally I think I like this one just a tiny bit better…I’m more of a purple girl than a pink girl. This one got a scrappy purple binding. I used up a lot of purple as both were bound with scrappy purple.
One would think I’d be out of scraps…but trust me, I’m not anywhere near close to being out of scraps. That’s okay though. I think the day I would run out of scraps would be a sad day for me.
I am out of white scraps though. If I need any, I’ll be needing to cut into yardage as I’m even out of white based fat quarters.
These are such happy quilts. I did a simple loopy design for a motif on these. They will be washed often so they need something that will stand up to the washings.
You can see that unlike the pattern, I made all the four patches in the same color scheme…all oriented the same direction.
Here they both are together….
The pink version is in the foreground..the purple version in the far ground.
It’s fun to see the two of them together.
I’ve learned overtime that if I am making two quilts of the same pattern that I need to work on them concurrently. If I do one first, I lose my get up and go and the second quilt lags.
Here they are close so you can really see the differences.
Do you prefer the pink on the left..or the purple on the right??
Either version for Ruby….as long as she can sit on a quilt and get herself a treat for her efforts, she doesn’t care what she’s sitting on!!
That makes three finished…#4 is well on it’s way to being done too. I couldn’t be happier about how things are going in the quilting department!!
For those curious minded, the pattern can be found in Bonnie Hunter’s book String Frenzy. Here’s the original quilt…
I like the version in the book…but my geese blocks wouldn’t have looked right with that coloring…
Thanks so much for the pattern Bonnie. These were so fun to make!!
