Gertrude Made Zig Zags

It's been a mixed bag of quilt styles in my studio this month. I've been quilting on a huge Civil War sampler, bright modern bow ties, and a TulaNova hand pieced fussy cut hexi EPP quilt.  Waiting in line is a homespun appliqued sampler, a Kaffe hand pieced Hexi, a Sue Spargo wool piece and several other pieced tops. 

 Here is Nifty's fabulous zigzag/offset flying geese quilt.

After stitching the straight lines, I emailed Nifty and said "I really like this" Then I did a row of feathers and emailed her again, saying "I love this!"

  What a fantastic mix of color/print/texture.  The bark cloth from Gertrude Made really adds a lot to this piece.  I guess I missed a photo of the borders, a fabulous rose printed bark cloth.

Nifty also  pieced her backing and matched up the print so you can't see the join.

What's to not love about this piece, except that I have to return it to her.  Sometimes that's the hardest part of my job!

Keep stitching
