Madrona Road Challenge Finish

I'm not really naming this, but if I would, it might be "Migration Around the World."  Maybe.
 
 I started this during the Scrappy Trip Around the World craze.  It looked like a lot of fun, but I knew I didn't have time to make a whole quilt right now.  Our local Salt Lake MQG guidelines for the challenge added that we needed to incorporate triangles, so I added flying geese around the outside.  They are tiny, finishing at 1"x2".  The whole quilt is about 15.5" on each side.  I've given this to my 4-year-old daughter as a doll quilt (stuffed tiger quilt?) so I let her help me on it.  She operated the foot pedal while I did the straight-line quilting.  It was just a little scary. =)  A few of the lines ended up a little wonky because it is hard to control everything with a kid in between me and the machine!  She loved it and is looking forward to sewing more with me, especially when it's something pink.

I pieced the back and used up many of my scraps, and did a scrappy binding as well.  My munchkin is very  happy with it!  Hannah the tiger seems to like it too.

  4. I like the placement of the yellow. It adds to the motion of the quilt.

  8. How awesome that your daughter was able to "help." I was "helping" my grandmother at church quilting bees when I was her age, and those are some of my most precious memories. I bet she'll treasure this little tiger quilt always.
