A Wanderlust Quilt Top : :

Wanderlust Quilt Top

Today is my stop on April Rhodes' Wanderer Fabric Tour that I am so, so excited to be a part of! At Fall Quilt Market I completely fell in love with this new, inspiring collection and have been so looking forward to it's release!

Wanderer LOVE!  Wanderlust Quilt Top

A couple of weeks ago I shared a peek of my plan for a flying geese quilt featuring each lovely Wanderer print with a mix of complimenting AGF Pure Element solids in a layout that I was really excited about. I'm calling this my Wanderlust Quilt. The name is inspired by the prints themselves that tell a story of World travel, adventure and dreams. And, is equally inspired by the flow and movement of my flying geese pattern!

I love the impact of separating each of these beautiful Wanderer fabric colors!

Here we are at Cherry Springs Vista, an amazing place to view the rolling hills of Potter County, even in sub-zero temperatures!
