wild goose chase quilt

 This Wild Goose Chase pattern went together so quickly, that I had to do some research to find this information for you.  (ok, the truth is that all the info is in storage, along with our stuff)               


                 

We live in a small town with lots of cool photoshoot opportunities.   When I have to mail a letter or return packages, I go to the postoffice . . . 


mostly, because there is this old cool barn across the street, (and a place around the corner to get a "little" snack shake :)




with awesome hardware.  I'd love to know how many times this barn door was opened, and what the life was like of the farmer who opened it each morning . . . and if he named his chickens.



I used fabric manufactured by Robin Picken.  She has only been around in the quilting public eye for a few years.  Her fabrics which I believe she originally designed on Spoonflower's website, quickly became popular, and of course!  What great colors and designs.  



I'm not sure what they call this design.  Stacked nickels?

quilt stats
size - 63x63, washed
fabric - blushing peonies (mostly, but other fabrics of Robin's thrown in as well) by Robin Pickens
batting - bamboo
quilting design - medium size meander





It's nice to have a variety of quilts around the house, different sizes and shapes, different weights and different backing fabrics.  I like to use dark fabrics for the backs occasionally, because sometimes you just need a dark backed quilt!  like when your husband puts his dirty suitcase on the bed to pack for a business trip and you come running in with a dark backed quilt. 

This is a nice light weight quilt for cool summer nights.
