Success........ UFO for August is done


My goal for yesterday was finished, with the exception of one pillow case. And that pillow case is all cut out, and pinned and ready to sew. Another hour should finish it.
It's not a very good picture, with part of it in the sun, and it gives a good idea of how the whole thing works.
Here's a closer view of the side setting triangles. I tried hooked feathers for the first time on this one. And I did the faux piped binding by machine again.
Here's the backing. You can see some of the continuous curves done in the blocks here.
And finally, the pillow case. It goes with this quilt, quite well,  but I think it will go well with other quilts in my collection, as well.
And now, does anyone have an idea for a name for this thing. Right now, it is called Spring Swap because the star blocks in the quilt are from an online swap I participated in back in 2010, hosted by Shannon at Pieceful Kwilter. I would like something a bit more imaginative, but I have a terrible time coming up with names for quilts.
Edit: after much thought, and a suggestion from Gail which focused my brain on the flying geese in the quilt, I've decided to name this quilt Spring Migration. I think it fits with the flying geese in the quilt blocks, and with the fact that the star blocks "migrated" from all over the United States, and even one from Australia. I'm linking this post up to Can I get a Whoop Whoop at the blog Confessions of a Fabric Addict and to TGIFF at Amy's Crafty Shenanigans and to the August UFO reveal at Patchwork Times.

  12. I'm just a "wee" bit behind - for some reason last week, I was crazy busy and didn't read more than one or two blog posts.
    This quilt is stunning! I love the colours of the swap blocks, but especially your flying geese blocks.
