Only in Texas, a Designer Bootique!

Flying Goose Boot by Holly Nelson

You might remember my post from earlier this year that featured this cool use of the Flying Goose Filler designed by Holly Nelson from Comfort, TX.  She was designing a “boot of the month” for her local quilt shop, Sew Special in Leon Springs, TX, just north of San Antonio.   Holly has this to say about the block, “It took me a long time to figure out how to get those flying geese onto a boot, as I kept trying to swirl them and twist them, but there is just so much space to work with.  I thought about putting a pieced star as a spur, but thought the ladies would mutiny.”

“The 12 boots went into a top called “Designer Bootique” (pardon the obvious pun).  It’s not quilted yet, but the top is done and I thought you’d like to see how it turned out.”

The pattern for “Designer Bootique” will be available in November through the shop and also can be ordered directly from Holly Nelson!   I just love the creativity in this one!
