Gingham Geese Revealed!

 This quilt ended up with Three names!
 Mr. Riley dubbed it The Mario Kart Quilt - because in the game you drive over arrows to speed you up.
 I dubbed it the Bubble Wrap quilt after all the circles were quilted in.
 Officially I think I would call it Gingham Geese.
 It went to my sister, who just turned Thirty!  I figured there was no way a mostly white quilt would survive long in this house.
 It is backed with a woven turquoise gingham.  Nice and soft!  Bound in a solid magenta.  Final measurements: 49" x 69" (I think.  I wrote it down, but of course now I can't find it! Grr!)  Anyway, its a good couch snuggling size.  Not quite twin.

A huge Thank You to Elizabeth at Occasional Piece-Quilt - who sent me the gingham and got me going!

Very cool quilt, Rachel. I think the ginghams just call out for white, and I love the way you put it all together. A WHOLE quilt! I'm very impressed. I can see from reading your blog this morning, that whenI get off of vacation, I've got some serious blog reading to get to--you've been busy!

Thanks for playing along on Project Gingham!
