Show and Tell and Hide and Seek

I have a little show and tell today!
It's called Bird Seed.

I finished a project that had been pushed aside.

I had been wanting to make an Orange Peel quilt for 
quite some time.

And I am so glad I made this one that combines
Flying Geese with the Orange Peels!

(did you notice Lottie, the cat, sitting on the rocks in the photo above)

It was super fun to make and I used fabric 
that I had been "aging to perfection" in my stash.

I actually had to looked back in my blog to see when I started it.
This was a photo of my progress in June.

Here is a photo of the actual pattern.

It is a free pattern by Tula Pink on the Bernina web site.
I believe it was in German... but just needed to be translated.
I love her colors and how the grays are on the bottom of the

But I think that I will be finishing it and gifting it to my
son Tauren and his soon to be bride Heather for their wedding
in April. So, I kept my version lighter.
I will mention that they like Fall colors...
so maybe
 this is
 the beginning
 of Autumn ???

I LOVE this quilt Sinta, Your choice of colors are perfect, what a lucky couple! What a great free pattern, thanks for the tip.

Margaret said...

Sinta, this quilt is absolutely gorgeous! The colors that you used, and the placement of the colors is perfect- it couldn't be better.I'm sure your son and his bride will love it!

I saw this quilt made up in a quilt store while visiting Las Vegas and I had to immediately buy the Tula Pink fabric and download the pattern. I'm not so great at picking different fabric for a quilt when it's shown as a sample. I just don't have the confidence that I'll like the quilt as much. I love your fabric choices. Your quilt is just as beautiful.
