Flying Geese Applique Quilt

A finish!






I can't tell you how pleased I am with how its turned out, I am going to Happy Dance thru the rest of the day!!

Some Quilty Facts!

The pattern for the applique bouquets came from the book Machine Applique by Sue Nichels 
Its a UFO, four or five years old
Its 50 x 50 inches
Its machine fusible applique, with blanket stitch
I quilted my first feather border on it
It is going to be hung on my bedroom wall
The backing is a IKEA sheet
I quilted it myself on my Bernina 440
The batting is Quilters Dream Cotton



I have entered it into an online quilt competition, over at the Quilting Gallery, voting starts on Friday, the theme is flying geese so I'm hoping that the border qualifies it?

A big thank you to everybody who has left such lovely comments on my blog when I have posted about this quilt.

My first posting was back in March so definitely time for a change LOL!

This post is linked to Patchwork Times, I'm heading straight over to check out what everyone has been making.

Happy sewing!
