DQS12 – The Dilemma

If you remember back to THIS post, I played with the Drunkards Path block for my DQS12 swap quilt.

I ended up hand quilting with black Perle 8 cotton.

I’m just a little bit addicted to hand quilting at the moment.

I wasn’t sure if I liked it, so I made another one – this time a circle of geese, which was so much fun to make.

I used the free pattern from

Black solid prima homespun cotton for the background with Hoopla for the geese.

I hand quilted in a bright pink perle 8, which really stands out on the black fabric. This photo really doesn’t do it justice.

I still wasn’t sure which one I like better, so thought, why not make a two sided mini quilt?

My partner can change it around, depending on her mood :-)

Black binding finished it off. I’m pleased with the result.

I hope my partner likes it too.


  1. This looks great. The idea of having it double sided works so well. I hope your partner is over the moon about it!

  2. It looks awesome! The circle of flying geese is one of my fav blocks!

  16. You're so clever...wish you and I lived closer so we could have sewing days and I could learn so much from you. I bet your partner loved her double sided quilt. Fantastic favourite side is the flying geese...spectacular.
