Fly Away with Me quilt

I have really enjoyed quilting this quilt, and especially as I am making it myself.  I had a lot of fun peering closely at the different designs to see what was coming up for my stitching pleasure!
It is a design by Marg Sampson-George, called Fly Away with Me.

It is quilted entirely freehand with rulers and templates.  The outside borders have a simple curve in them so as not to detract from the beauty of those hexies.  Scrummy.
The inside of the quilt has SID around the applique and some loose fill with the odd leafy shape thrown in for good measure.

And what about this fabric as the backing?  It also has a join right down the middle which I was hard pressed to find. Perfect choice.



  1. Lovely quilting Belinda. Let's see your version!

  2. Love Marg's designs, you've really worked the machine quilting in line with her design. Love the backing fabric.

  3. Thanks Chris - my version is still on block 2.....but I loooove those little birdies. Seriously cute.

  4. wow, what a lot of stitching, both piecing and quilting. It looks great. Will be interested to see yours also.

  5. Very nice. My favourite kind of quilting. Totally creative. A real buzz!!!
