Orange Flying Geese
By Rita, ritacor

Rita writes that the “flying geese” pattern was her inspiration for this quilt’s pattern. It is one of her most recent works and measures approximately 1,45m x 1,90m. Rita used Amy Butler´s “Chrysanthemum Orange” and Moda´s “Mod Mum Orange” for the triangles combined with a light beige cotton fabric.

Rita adds, “The stripes of fabrics with the orange trees are from my own sheets when I was a child – a real treasure. For the upper up and down borders I used a Japanese fabric print with sewing notions. On the back I used a mix of some Portuguese fabrics prints, from my local fabric shop. I quilted it on the machine, using simple straight lines along the stripes with the orange trees fabric, and used organic cotton batting.” Rita’s blog ritacor is in Portugese but you’ll easily understand the beauty of her quilting and design.
