I decided to participate in the Quilting Board doll quilt swap for the month of June. I’ll be partnered up with someone, most likely someone in the US and we are both required to made doll quilts to swap. The rules are simple: the quilt must be between 12 and 24 inches, bound and made of natural fibres. All sorts of embellishments are allowed, not that I’m planning any at this stage.
I’ve never made a flying goose. The doll swap seemed like the perfect project to fill that gap. It turned out to be quite challenging.
I used the well described tutorial at Life’s a Quilt to make some two inch flying geese. While there is nothing at all wrong with the tutorial, my geese were a miserable failure and I wouldn’t insult my swap partner by using them.
Next step: six inch geese. The larger scale should make it a bit easier.
