WIP

This is a white background fabric Honest!

My work in progress is an old quilt that I started  maybe five years ago, It got bigger than I could handle to quilt at the time and I had run out of the white fabric needed to finish making a flying geese border, so its languished in a drawer ever since.

The applique is fused and then  machine blanket stitched

But now in the true spirit of patchwork, I've found another white swirly fabric that's a good match, and I've started making more flying geese blocks, I'm using my Marti Mitchel flying geese ruler so there is no fabric wastage and they sew together brilliantly.

Little geese waiting for their wings

Hope you are making progress on your quilt project!

This is beautiful! I've always been a little intimidated by applique. This is so pretty though I might just be inspired to give it a try:)
