My Journey--QUILT #5

 Another quilt from the Special Exhibit My Joyful Journey, part of the Virtual Quilt Festival, December 3-5, 2020.

QUILT #5 Five Easy Pieces, 86" x 93", machine pieced, hand quilted, 1995

The Story: A much simpler version of the previous quilt, Pieces of the Past--Circa 1875--based on an antique top I bought at a yard sale. This pattern is often called Wild Goose Chase. It does not have the tricky set-in four patches at sashing intersections; instead it has squares making it easy to sew together in diagonal rows. Students preferred to piece this one--no one ever tried piecing the more difficult version.

It was hand quilted by a friend who did many quilts for me in this time period. I marked and basted the quilt, she quilted it:

Let's quilt.



  1. It may be simpler than the previous quilt, but still very pleasing to the eye--the crisp background with the colorful chains criss-crossing. Really striking.
