Small Packages

Remember as a child when you would find your Christmas gifts under the tree and begin shaking them to guess what was inside?  I was often reminded by my parents that, "Good things come in small packages."  I believe the same thing is true about quilts.  If you are a quilt maker you understand that the smaller the quilt pieces the more challenging a quilt is to make.

Today I am sharing a relatively small quilt (36"x48") that I use as a wall quilt or table topper.  It was made from a pattern by Jinny Beyer called Snowbirds and it's simply row after row of flying geese in the full color spectrum.  Although this is a fairly modern quilt design it still has a subtle Amish look to me so I hand quilted in dark brown (Amish tradition).  This is one of my favorite quilts.

If you haven't tried making a small quilt yet, it's time to take the plunge!

Wherever you are have a wonderful Saturday!

  1. I haven't tried to do Flying Geese yet. I love this one though with the colour play you've made in the arranging. The border looks scrumptious! This is so beautiful Barb. You are such an inspiration to me.


  2. That's a beautiful quilt Barb! It does have an Amish look. You did a great job, as usual!!
