One of the main challenges of Project QUILTING is that you only have one week to accomplish the project. It doesn’t take much to happen for a person to miss the deadline. This week we had a new participant have some technical difficulties and her piece did not make it in on time. I’m very happy that she sent me pictures of her piece anyway so I can still share it with you all.
Flying geese by Virginia Palmisano
I know I am too late for the contest but since I went to the trouble of rushing to finish this flying geese project I thought I would submit it anyway. I thought all week about entering but couldn’t come up with any ideas till
yesterday. I went through my stash and wasn’t sure that the colors would work, but after getting it together I think they work better than I thought. I made the flying geese first, then I sewed the leftover triangles for the outer border. For the binding I used the same colors but used 4×2 inch strips folded in half. I like how it came out. I haven’t decided if I want to add a sleeve on the back for a wall hanging or if I will send it to my granddaughter for a doll blanket.

If you do this I’ll be happy to blog about it and the story behind it. I realize that the time frames don’t always work for everyone BUT I do still feel that these challenges can really inspire people to create amazing pieces and I hope many take advantage of it.
