Flying Geese Top and Backing

Back to my low volume baby quilt.

 Flying Geese top and backing finished.

I am quite satisfied with the soft feeling given by those tunes.

For the backing I used two fabrics, recalling those of the top.

My basket obsession!

Summer is becoming very hot here in Greece, and it allows me to sew only very early in the morning. I feel sorry I cannot go on at my usual rythm. I have so many projects in mind... and other baby quilts to prepare,
grand-children (mine and friend's) being on the way, one after the other...

I wish you all a mild summer that allows you to sew and to quilt!
