I made this pincushion for my partner in the Sewtopia Chicago Swap to match the quilt I made.

The pattern is Juicy Goosey by Jeli Quilts. I sewed one quadrant of the 8 1/2" block.

I made this quilt for my partner in the Sewtopia Chicago swap. The only instructions were to make something we loved and we won't be matched with a partner until we all get there. What I love: scrappy rainbow and scrappy low volume, paper piecing, hand quilting. It was a pretty easy decision as to what to make because I already had made one block while doing some pattern testing.

Title: Rainbow Geese
Pattern: Every Which Way But Goose by Jeli Quilts
Fabrics: A wide variety of fabrics from my stash. Th backing is IKEA Britten Nummer fabric. See a picture showing the back and label here
Quilting: Hand quilted using Aurifil 12 weight. See a closeup of the quilting here.
Batting: Hobbs Heirloom Washable Wool Batting
Finished Size: 16" square
Started and Completed: March 2015

I'm totally thrilled with how this turned out (and with how my hand quilting gets better with every quilt) -- I just hope that whoever receives this loves it as much as me.

Just for fun I made this basket! The basket pattern is the 1 Hour Basket by kelbysews and it's free! The paper-pieced geese I added are also from a free pattern, Goosing Borders by Jeli Quilts

The exterior fabric is Robert Kaufman Essex Linen in natural. I didn't have fusible fleece so I used quilt batting instead (basted around the edge to the exterior fabric pieces.) I also wanted to make sure it wasn't floppy so I added a layer of interfacing (SF101) on top of the batting. I wanted the handles to standup so I added a layer of the same interfacing to them. I handquilted around the geese using Aurifil 12 weight before adding the interfacing.

I have absolutely no need for a basket like this but it was so much fun to make and incredibly addictive -- I want to make so many more! I'm thinking this would be a great extra to add to a swap package.

This shows the label and back of my Rainbow Geese mini quilt. I did indeed paper piece a small rainbow of geese as part of the label. The pattern is Juicy Goosey by Jeli Quilts. I made one quadrant of the 4 1/2" block in the pattern for this label. I was piecing the same block in a larger size for this pincushion so it was minimal effort (really!) to do another block at the same time.
