tension issues

Two words that describe most aspects of my life these days. Ugh. Note to self: STOP FIDDLING WITH THE JUKI KNOBS, CASSIE. YOU WILL NEVER FIND THE PERFECT BALANCE AGAIN.
The quilt that I said I would have quilted and bound and ready to use? Spray basted and hanging in the craft room. Yep. Not. A. Stitch.
So I figured I would blog about a quilt that I finished a thousand years ago. Flying-geese-o-rama mama! 

For this one I used fabrics from my stash that kinda/sorta went together. I think it looks good. ;)
I quilted 1/4" along the vertical and horizontal seams with various thread colors, just to spice it up. Binding was attached by machine, of course.

It's a bit small, but it's just the right size to cuddle up under (not that I have even moved it out of my sewing room yet). It's backed with a supersoft minky from hobby lobby. I skipped the batting because I don't really find it necessary when using minky. It gives it such a nice drape! 

I used various low-volume prints and white fabrics that I had on hand for the background of the geese units.  I wish I had more of those Michael Miller foxes, too frikkin cute. Some of my favorite prints are in there.. shout out to Amy Butler, my girl! ;)

I think that's snow in the right hand corner? That's how long ago I finished this, ha! Before I know it, I'll be buried in another two feet of snow. Yay. PS I'm moving to the Bahamas, I hope the quilt scene is hoppin' there. I'm bring my Medusa hair with me.
