This is the 5th quilt top that I made from the box of donated fabrics from Audrey Prothero. She loves Kaffe Fassett fabrics and has so much that she asked me to see if I could make some charity quilt tops from them. December is the month of the year that I dedicate to making charity quilts and quilt tops (also baking Christmas cookies!). I had lots of time to sew with the snowy weather this year.
I found this quilt as a free pattern from Art Gallery Quilts and its called "Flying Colors". I purchased 3 yards of navy blue grunge for the background and used the Kaffe Fassett material for all of the colored pieces. It's entirely made from flying geese blocks and using the no-waste method that is also detailed in the free pattern. The quilt pattern makes a quilt that is 60" x 60". That is a tad too short for our charity group, so I added 3 @ 3" strips at the top, middle and bottom. This quilt top measures 60" x 69".
I hope you like it!
