Lydia's Flying Geese Quilt

Today i'm featuring a flying geese quilt I made for my sister Heidi's daughter, Lydia, wayyyyyy back in 2001. These photos (except the one with the girls) were actually taken this week, so it's nice to see that my workmanship held up! Holding up nicely also is the flannel from Hobby Lobby that I used to make it. This was very early on in my love affair with fabric and I hadn't yet met quilt shop fabric. Lol, maybe my love of designer fabric is misplaced if this flannel is such a performer!
This is one of my top five favorite quilts I have ever made and i'm proud to say that Lydia has loved the heck out of it. Heidi reports that over the years it has been with her through thick and thin, in sickness and in health, and she still loves it.

Go ahead and visit heidi's shop to see her cool minkee items for sale!

This quilt is already an heirloom! Congratulations on good, lasting sewing.

Thanks Auntie Wendy! I cannot believe how little Lydia was for this picture! She slept in my arms under this quilt as an infant, used it for tea parties, a cape, but most of all as her treasured "blank". At 7 she still sleeps with him every night (don't tell her friends) and hates when I wash him. I can't remember having to make a repair...even on the silky binding.
