When the organizer of the Rainbow Mini Swap on Instagram asked for an angel in Canada to make a quilt for someone whose partner had flaked I decided that it was time to pay forward some of the awesome I've received in IG swaps and signed up to be that angel.

Title: Rainbow Goose Dash
Pattern: Goose Dash by Jeli Quilts
Fabrics: Various fabrics from my stash, Kona White for the churn dash, Scribble Notes in Charcoal from Architextures by Carolyn Friedlander for the background, IKEA Britten Nummer for the backing
Quilting: Machine quilted using Connecting Threads Essential Cotton in white using a walking foot. I started with a circle in the centre and then spiralled out using the edge of my walking foot as the guide. See a closeup of the quilting here
Batting: Hobbs Heirloom 80/20
Finished Size: 24" x 24"
Started and Completed: June 2015

I really wanted to use the texty fabric for the background but I was a bit flummoxed as to what to do about its directionality in the corner triangles. I decided to cut the squares on the bias so that the text would run on the diagonal and I'm so happy with the result!

The only thing about being an angel is that the timeline is super tight -- I finished this quilt in three evenings of non-stop sewing. It was worth it though because my partner loved it and I got to experience my favourite part of any swap, the gifting!

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.

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.
