Way back in June, I finished a christmas quilt using a block that I designed (paper piecing pattern and tutorial here). This quilt was a lot of work, and I love the end result. I called the block “homeward bound” because it looks as if all the geese are flying into home base, but apparently there is another “homeward bound” block, so I don’t know what to call this one anymore.
This quilt uses random red, white, and green christmas fabric that I have collected for the past while. I tried to play with color and value with this quilt, and I do like the effect. This quilt is 70 inches by 70 inches, so that makes it a large throw quilt.
I quilted it on my home machine using a free motion swirl, and I love the stability and texture it gives to the finished quilt top. To learn more about this quilt, click here.
