"Learner's Quilt" Quilt-as-You-Go

I decided to make a  quilt-as-you-go ‘Learner’s Quilt'—that is what I am calling it anyway—but I’m pretty sure it is actually just called a Sampler Quilt.

MY FABRIC

They have the same print in two different colours, beige and green. I designed the print myself, and I overbought the fabric when I ordered it.

SCRAPPY QAYG BLOCKS

I used strips of my fabric in different widths, sewing right sides together through the top batting and backing all at once.

FLYING GEESE

I made 8 ‘geese’ (?) and I put 4 of them together into these two blocks, which I think might mean they are square in square blocks, not flying geese blocks. Is that right?

QUILT-AS-YOU-GO HEXAGONS

I bought the smaller 1 & 1/4 size instead of the larger one, as I figured I’d get more scrap fabric hexis out of a smaller size.

What I did was sew the backing fabric together, wrong side to wrong side, just along the edge of the quilted block. Then I folded over the raw edge twice and sewed down either side.

FREE MOTION QUILTING

It was a bit like putting together a jigsaw puzzle to get it into a semi-rectangular shape, but a jigsaw that was never actually designed to fit together!
