I finished up my first new quilt top of the year early this past Sunday morning. I absolutely love it! It's made using the same flying geese measurements as I share in my Soaring High quilt pattern for Cloud9 Fabrics and my Blogger's Choice bundle for the Fat Quarter Shop!
When I was invited to create a Blogger's Choice bundle, I had no particular color scheme in mind, and found it a little difficult to choose from just those fabrics newly available this month. Knowing that it would be available for January, I wanted it to feel like Winter and in the end settled with a collection of icy blue-green, pale grays, creamy whites, dark teal, a few saffron yellows, black, and purples. It has a much different feel than the fabrics I've been using these past couple weeks, a welcomed change and chance to do something a little different!
To make this quilt, I made lots and lots of geese and sewed them randomly together going every which way. I was having fun and was working fast!
I plan to see about sending this one into Melissa of Sewing Shabby Quilting to work her quilting magic with something that will compliment all these flying geese. I can't wait to see it finished!
