Finish it up Friday

The top of Straight Line Bow is finished - hooray!!!!!  I have posted the progress shots here and here

With the first cut and strip of white:


and it worked so well I thought I would cut it again and add these geese I had been playing with:

 


It was the first time I had made flying geese and whilst I managed to get the tops of my triangles perfect the sides were quite so good.  But there comes a time when you've just got to get it made!


It was too damp and dirty to take it outside today so a couple of shots from my studio and on the bed!

 
 
I now need to get some backing fabric for it and get it on my frame to quilt for a total finished project!

I am linking up to Finish it up Friday over at Crazy Mom Quilts. x

    1. Thanks Colleen. Having already cut it once it was far easier to do when inserting the flying geese!

  6. I thought slashing it once and adding the white strip was pretty clever but slashing again and adding flying geese? WOW! Brilliant! It looks SO cool on the bed! :) I can't wait to see what you do with the quilting on this one!
