A Little Quilt

My friend Sue bought me back from Houston a "Little Bits" tissue pattern called "Roman Stripes". I decided to use up my Civil War and Reproduction scraps. I foundation hand pieced and then decided to make up the flying geese pattern out of tissue paper. Size 33 inches square.
Dh looked at it, knowing how I have a passion for planes, said "which one is the Qantas tail?".
It is a bit wonky as I have yet to press it, and don't want to stretch the flying geese too much.


  1. Wow what a fabulous quilt. Well done Jenni and I hope to see it in person some day. How are you going to quilt it?
    Hugs, Jan Mac

  2. That looks really nice, Jenni

  3. Gorgeous Jenni!! I have made a few roman stripes quilts .. they go together easily (I used strip piecing) and look quite dramatic and certainly different depending on fabric choices. Mine didn't have those great flying geese, however.
