2016-8 Dutchman Puzzle Topper

dutchman-topper

This topper was made with some leftover blocks from a workshop I led.  With just enough flying geese to make four Dutchman Puzzle blocks, I decided to put them together into a table topper.   There was enough fabric left over to add the navy sashing and yellow inner border and navy outer border.  The backing fabric is the same as the light blue flying geese.

The quilting is done in a medium blue thread that goes well with the navy fabrics, but seems too contrasting on the yellow.  If I were to do this over, I would change my quilting designs so that I could custom quilt the yellow flying geese with yellow thread.  We live and we learn.  That is one of the things I find quite inspiring about quilting.  We can always find a way to do it better the next time!
