Monochromatic Geese Quilt

I finished up the black and white geese quilt this week and had to steal my niece for a few minutes tonight to take some picture of it.

Isn't she so sweet? Love that little girl.

This quilt was pretty easy to make. The flying geese came together four at a time and I sashed them with simple white Kona cotton. I want to do another one of these, but in a color family. Any thoughts what I should do?

Monochromatic Geese

I've been wanting to make a flying geese quilt for awhile now. I'm not sure exactly what I want it to look like yet, but I have a rough idea. I started making these geese this morning with Lazy Girl Designs Flying Geese ruler. They come together four at a time, which is very convenient.

Hopefully I can get this quilt top put together in a few days. 

P.S. Spy that cute teal geometric fabric in the corner? I just got it for $5.99/yard at a home fabric warehouse and it will soon be hanging as floor-to-ceiling drapes in my living room!

Simple Elephant Baby Quilt

Just a quick finish for the weekend -  I pieced these squares together several months ago. They were leftovers from the Elephant Splash quilt I did last year. I threw in a few extra prints and colors too. Sometimes you just need a really easy project, you know? Last week, mom came up with the cute elephant applique, I quilted it, and she bound it. We make quite the team, I think.

The swirly quilting is supposed to look a little like an elephant trunk.

The cute flannel back is from JoAnn.

Finished Greek Cross Quilt

Mom and I found this sherbet orange chevron flannel for the back and I think it compliments all the bright solid colors nicely. All fabrics on the front are Robert Kaufman Kona cottons. The colors are Bahama, marine, lagoon, mango, candy green, banana, medium gray, and white.

Greek Cross Quilt - Coming Soon

I'm going through the leftovers from my queen size Plus quilt to make a smaller and slightly different version of it.

This block was inspired by the Greek Cross Tutorial over at Fresh Lemons Quilts. I used her basic dimensions, but I am skipping the HST triangle in the corners for a simpler look. I also think I'll alternate between white crosses and white background. I'm excited to see how it turns out.
