I hope you have enjoyed browsing those forgotten books, magazines, etc... AND hope you chose one to play with this month. If not, you are always welcome to join in any time.
My chosen 'dusty' pattern was this older Debbi Mumm and selected the little geese wallhanging. I thought I would get to the kitties, but opted not to make those as I have done something very similar in the past - I hate to repeat patterns.
My Country Geese gone modern. The scraps for the geese are more of a classic country, but the setting on the white reads a little modern to me. The entire project was made out of the scrap basket - even the back and hanging sleeve. The batt was two pieces of Hobbs cotton stitched together - used up.
I used Connecting Threads Pro poly (for longarms, but I use it on my home machine) and Essentials white for the bobbin. Using my walking foot, I stitched in the ditch on all the sashing and around each goose - lots of turning this baby under the machine. Since it was so white, I stitched some extra geese in the border and lots of straight line quilting for texture.
Since this was entirely scraps used up - I had just enough of each 'goose' fabric for one flying geese block. So I stitched the blank corners with their own geese. I really enjoyed working on this project. Finished size is 20" square.
