Flight Path

Thank you for visiting and reading about my quilt 
'Flight Path'

I drew the design for this quilt for the Oakshott Autumn Bundle 
and it is originally posted here.



The name of this quilt comes from a poem 
'On The Flight Path' 
about the migration of geese in the fall.  I thought of the poem while I was working on this quilt, as I wanted to show a migration of fall colors in the flying geese blocks.  


The quilting is matchstick, about 1/8" apart and I used 4 different Aurifil colors that matched the background colors, 28 wt quilting thread.  


All fabrics are Oakshott cottons
After washing 
42" x 62"


I am entering in Amy's Creative Side Bloggers Quilt Festival - Original Design.
I hope you will take a look at the other quilts and cast your vote, for me if it pleases you!  

Thank you for visiting - and voting

Wow, this is subtle and beautiful!! Love me some matchstick quilting :) I think that's the best quilting for shot cottons, as well!
