Shoo Fly, Oh My!

I started this quilt at a quilt retreat in July and worked throughout the fall on the piecing.  I finished it over Christmas & New Year’s.  The pattern is called Shoo Fly, Oh My. The regular Shoo Fly block and then little ones in the sashing that make you say, “Oh my!” when you are piecing them!

I added the yummy Wool & Needle flannel for backing and with the Hobbs 80/20 batting it is so cozy on the couch!!  However, I kept forgetting to draft my men to hold it for a photo.  (Well, and the fact that I stumbled on the steps and when my back is out, my brain seems to go with it!!)

I made this from 22 fat quarters of 80’s & 90’s blue fabrics from my stash.  I added in a new tan fabric for the background.  I’m quite pleased with the quilt and that I could make something nice from the dated fabrics.  🙂

I quilted this in a circular pattern using a pantograph.  I think the circular quilting compliments the angular piecing.
