Vibrant & Vivacious: Project Quilting Challenge 11.6

This week, more so than others, was a great way to escape from what's happening in the world. 
I'm sure many of you can relate. 
There's little I can think about when I have my sewing machine needle piercing through fabric. 
It's a wonderful thing to create, isn't it?

This week's challenge at Persimon Dreams was to use vibrant colors! 
It's been rather bleak, gray weather here in my corner of Iowa, so playing with these fabrics added some joy.

I've had a pattern on my Pinterest board for a long time, and I knew I could figure it out without too much trouble. 
Who needs a stinkin' pattern to buy when you can finagle on your own? 😁

I was trying too hard to  make my Flying Geese matchy-matchy and I wasn't really getting the effect I wanted. So, I threw caution to the wind and put crazy combinations together. So much easier!

Here we go with my layout....looking good, right? Vibrant and Vivacious?

I even sewed up all those cut-off corners for another project down the line. 

I wanted to try mitered corners and this was the perfect time! 
I found a great video from Fons & Porter. 
Easy, peasy...except for one corner that I had to re-do THREE times!

Details on quilting and getting that binding just right. 

Now, if I could just learn to take a decent photo! 
This is a perfect rectangle...believe me!
