Flying Geese Antique Look
My "masterpiece" in progress. A Flying Geese done in old fashioned strippy set, I tried my best to make this look really old. Most of the fabrics are reproductions, but some just look old. You can see the basting thread still in while I am working on it. I am using a blue thread to quilt the "geese" and will use brown for the brown reproduction floral strips. I have had this fabric for several years and began making the geese blocks a couple of years ago. There are five strips of geese with 23 in each strip. The geese blocks are 3" by 6". Will try to put a photo on when its done.
Have done many types of needlework and sewing since the 1960's, including handspinning.
I am devoted to prayer and the study of Scripture and am also a grandmother. My husband and I are both ministering in our local area, and I also have an active internet ministry.
I really enjoy the creative process involved in designing blogs and websites, and of course needlework patterns.
