Hazel Ridge Path finished

Hazel Ridge Path, 87" x 58"

Owl quilting




It's finally done! I'm really pleased with the machine quilting. I traced the owls (from a Hari Walner pattern) onto tissue paper, pinned the tissue to the border and free motion quilted. Then I attached the border to the quilt. I lot of work, but worth it for the result.

Now time to get ready to teach Charm Quilts to the Patchers at the Lakeshore in Muskegon, MI. Also doing a Detroit in the 1930s lecture. I'll be there next Monday.

    1. It's my own variation on a traditional block, Wild Goose Chase. I started with the block in the lower left corner and thought the flying geese were too small. I was too lazy to make an extra block, so just left it in. One of these days I'll write up the pattern.

  6. I love your quilt. Flying and geese and stars combine my two favorite blocks for a scrap quilt. Love the green, too!

    1. I made the quilt for Gijsbert van Frankenhuyzen and he takes in injured owls.

  8. This quilt really has a lot of movement with the lights in the geese units. Such a variety of greens--really livens up the color aspect. Who doesn't love an owl???
