Big Goose Chase
Pattern: Tiny 89 by Pieced a Tree Patterns
Size: 56.5" x 67.5"
Flying Geese have always been one of my favourite blocks. These ones measure at 4" x 8" (finished)
The light print is by Timeless Treasures (Patt #FUN-C8224), the dark green is Northcott Stonehenge (#3951), and the main print used on each side is by Red Rooster Fabrics: Around Town by Terri Degenkoib of Whimsicals (DSN #24100)
**I found the main print fabric was not quite wide enough to cut the pieces required in the pattern so I adjusted it slightly and cut the narrower side 15.5" wide instead of 16". It could be because I always preshrink my fabrics or it could just be a fabric that's just a bit narrower to start with. I also found that, because I quilted it quite heavily, I lost a bit more length & width once I was finished. I'm guessing it will shrink up a bit more once it goes through the washer & dryer the first couple of times too. It will still be a good lap size quilt.
I stitched in the ditch around each of the Flying Geese and the echo quilted approximately 0.5" lines.
I did an allover stipple or meander quilting over the main print.
The backing is a flannel from Fabricland.
