July's Lovely Progress ... and Today's Plan for Slow Stitching

Here is where I am with Tweet, the crib-sized quilt that is my project for a Lovely Finish this month.

 On the design wall

021 - Flock of Flying Geese (Quilt Units)The bird blocks and a large flock of flying geese were made as part of my Daily Feather project.

What's next:

  • Miter the corners of the borders (they are pinned in place now)
  • Re check my match ... I made a large flock of flying geese units, but, although there are more than you see in the photo, I don't think that I have made enough.  
  • Make more flying geese if needed.
  • Make the corner blocks for the flying geese border
  • Add the flying geese border
  • Add/stitch appliqué elements (perches and doors for the houses)
  • Mark the quilting designs.  I plan to use a mix of marked and unmarked free motion quilting. 
  • Layer and baste the quilt
  • Quilt, bind and label it. 
It sounds so quick and easy, doesn't it?  The appliqué will be sewn by hand--my plan for today's Slow Stitch Sunday

Oh, what a fun quilt! Can't help but smile looking at it.

I don't know what I like better, the lovely contrast of orange with aqua, or the great background fabric that looks like billowy clouds. This will be great.

a really cute quilt that is coming together here and the colors are really wonderful~!!~

you're right, it looks to quick and easy in list form but this slow stitching takes lots of time.
it looks as though you will reach your goal though. i guess at least part of the success hinges on good organizational skills.

What an easy list (hehe!) A few words but lots of time. Enjoy your slow stitching today on a very cute quilt.
