This colorful, bright lap quilt to warm up and brighten up your holiday home decor!
A Christmas goose, festively adorned with a applique wreath around its neck - all The flying geese, large and small, are so graceful and pick up all the beautiful colors of the focal fabric (used in the outer border).
The border are finished with a bright and simple 4-patch block, providing a crisp, professional framing to the quilt, measuring 37" x 47" [94x119 cm].
I machine pieced and hand-quilted this beauty - garlands of sweet hearts grace the borders and the sashing and then with a repeating heart at the center of each goose. Quilted a little bit each evening, such a soothing process. The coverage is good without taking away from the beauty of the quilt.
All fabrics are quilt-shop quality 100% cottons, machine washed prior to the machine piecing. Traditional in Christmas greens and berry reds, with touches of decorator fancy for the wreaths and country calicoes for the borders. The green fabric used in the inner border was also used to create the double mitered binding (that's the strip of fabric that completes the quilt) - hand sewn onto the front of the quilt by machine and then turned and hand-finished on the back.
The batting is Hobbs, the fabric is 100% calico cottons.
All of my quilts are created in a smoke-free and pet friendly environment.
