Geese in Flight ~ A Heart Builders Quilt

I recently received this quilt top pieced by Annette Z to quilt for Stash Builder Box's Heart Builders charity. It is gorgeous, with tons of flying geese in different formations.

I loaded the quilt on my frame and got to work. When I first got my longarm, for some reason I was most fearful about learning to load. I've watched videos, and they didn't make any sense. But once I actually did it, I realized it's not that bad, and even kind of enjoyable! (Preparing the backing, on the other hand, is not the least bit enjoyable.)

I looked at this top for awhile before I decided on my design. I did a swirl / paisley allover for most of it, but I highlighted a few of my favorite blocks and did a custom design for those.

I finished it with a black binding to give it some extra drama. Now, once I can find a box to ship this, it's off to be given to a child in need!

  11. Marvelous job! You did great. Learning the longarm just takes practice, you'll get more comfortable as you use it more. I like using wide backings so I don't have to piece.
