Flight at Sunrise


This is my next personal project. I pieced this top last April, but didn't do anything further with it. I need to put some kind of border on it and then quilt it. Since I'm out of hand-dyed fabric, I think I'll take a day and dye fabric to see what I come up with. All the background patches are hand-dyed fabrics. The flying geese are commercial fabrics.
My oldest DD wants to make a whole cloth quilt out of hand-dyed fabric. We'll plan a day and dye fabric together and then she can design her whole cloth while I work on borders for this quilt. I'm also planning a whole cloth quilt, but out of white cotton sateen. It will be a while before I get to that one, though.
The wedding dress quilt is done as of 8:30pm tonight!!!!! I'm so happy! This was a long, challenging project, but I learned a lot and it sure is a pretty quilt. I want the customer to see it first before I post photos of it, but if she is agreeable, I'll get photos posted early next week.
My next customer quilt is a Sock Monkey quilt. Soooo cute!
Tomorrow I'm taking the day off from quilting. I have a lot to do around the house and I have yet to take down our Christmas decorations.

Susan - I love your work -- I know you are a follower on my blog, but somehow I deleted all the followers, so would you mind signing up again?

Must have been a geriatric moment!

I'm looking forward to seeing the wedding dress quilt, but the first thing I thought when your blog opened on this picture was, "Oh, wow!" That's just beautiful.

Thank you. I had a lot of fun piecing this quilt. I had a new gadget for making the geese and had to try it out.

Hello Susan, I came to see the wedding quilt from the Long Arm quilt list. I also like dyeing fabric and love the Flight At Sunrise quilt.
