My own design...two views...one from each end...



Finished the binding today...this quilt used some fabric from my Mom's stash and some fabric I had for years...bought more in 1993 and finished piecing the top sometime around 2005 I think. Binding is from my Mom's quilting stash that I brought home here in 1998 when she passed away. I have watched a million videos and read so much to learn to do that right, and it's not perfect but it's a start. Thanks to so many of you.

Oh Wow, Muffet. It is lovely beyond words. I like tthe geese so much and yours really is wonderful. You did a great job. What did you use for the backing fabric?

I am a Quilter at heart. I love to play with fabrics, patterns and colors. Recently I have discovered I enjoy doing applique. I love making pictures. Using a sewing machine is much easier than counted cross stitch or oil painting for me. I enjoy landscape quilting as well. I am working on my first applique project in the spring of 2014.

Great colors!!!

I have UFOs over 20 yrs old, so *if* they ever get finished, they'll be a long time in the making, too.

Muffet this is really nice - and I bet it means a lot to get it done. Love that you were able to use some of your Mom's fabrics.

Oh Muffet, its beautiful! Love the color, love love that it is a true scrap quilt! Love how the geese are different sizes. Love that it is so genuine. Love the quilting - you did a fantastic job. Love that you finally finished it. What a sense of accomplishment you must feel for having done it!

Thanks everyone for the nice words! Gosh....I didn't think people would see it so fast! LTS - the backing is a light varied paisley print cotton from Joann's Fabrics 108" backing array. They don't have many prints, but it really was nice because it effectively hid my quilting mistakes in its pattern! Here it is as on the Joann's site and it does look like this -



My mom was a master quilter and I never had an interest but did start his one...and now i love it.I don't use patterns though - have to go with what I think would look right to me, and I love scrap quilting! Again, thanks! Warbler - you have been just great, and everyone on the QUilting Corner is so supportive to us all, and that is what makes it a privilege to share here.

Nice backing fabric. I love that 108 wide sheeting. I makes adding a backing so easy to any size quilt

Mufffet, I love it, so cheerful. I am crazy about the center strip which is echoed by the binding, so it all pulls together. And the quilting is really nice, you must be very pleased.
