My tiny flying geese

My friend, Jo, from the last post had given me a small piece of the cheddar she had left over
from her large flying geese quilt.  A few months ago, she also gifted me with the mini Quilt In
A Day fg rulers.  So my mind starting obsessing over a new little project using both treasures
she gave me.  One try at the tiny geese and off I went cutting different indigos and stitching
up my little doll quilt.  She's wobbly and wonky and I am hoping once I wash her  in some
warm water, she will krinkle up and be even more wobbly and wonky to look like a well used
doll quilt.

See that quarter in the bottom left side?  Those little flying geese finish 3/4" by 1.5".  Sweet!
And then I wacked off some of the bottom ones.  Isn't that what they used to do way back
then?  Glad I like things a little primitive.

It's tiny and it was fun.  And I can't resist a little indigo and chedda'!!!!

It's Darling. Such perfect proportions! I never thought it was so small until you showed the quarter! Nice job! How did you quilt it?

Tiny and wonderful. And chopped off well. Really gives it the real antique look.

I have a friend who gifted me with those same rulers. They've been sitting on my cutting table looking at me and I am going to take your post as a sign to make a mini geese quilt from indigo and cheddar. I talked about my burning desire to use those colors today and Missie pointed me to this post.
