My little Boho Quilt

My little Boho Quilt, this is the name I have given to my second quilt in the Small Wonders series. 'Boho' has become a style that is short for Bohemian ? I may be wrong about that please dont hesitate to correct me. When I looked at the Arrow Crown block in my UFO pile I felt it had that Bohemian look to it. You can read the original post I wrote back in February 2012 about this Arrow Crown Block here. My little Boho Quiline Valley Quilts Because this block is fairly busy I though a small plain border would help separate the next border of Flying Geese Blocks. When I say plain don't confuse this with solid. I felt the fabric still needed a print that blended with the block. My latest favorite block are these cute as a button small flying geese. Perfect for borders. I have a tutorial on these cute flying geese blocks here. My little Boho Quilt / Pine Valley Quilts I love how the Flying Geese blocks have that scrappy look by adding loads of fabrics and mixing them all up. For the centre part of the Flying Geese Blocks I used a mixture of mainly Reds with a few different choices of that divine cheddar. The cheddar colour always adds a punch. The sides of the Flying Geese Blocks were a mixture of neutral fabrics, with each side being a different fabric. My dilemma was where to go from here ? I wondered about adding a little applique but just could not picture it in my mind. So............ it was back to my fabric stash to look for the perfect fabric and I found just that !! I had long forgotten about this beautiful fabric, I am so over the moon as I have loads of it, definitely a bonus and a fabric that is begging to be used. My little Boho Quilt / Pine Valley Quilts This fabric definitely gave My little Boho Quilt the look I was after. I felt the outside border did not need to be too wide to finish this quilt. I am so pleased to see this UFO block put to good use, and very happy with how it turned out. The quilt has finished at 22 inches x 22 inches so perfect for adding to my Small Wonder series.
