Before I get to the inspiration, I have made a decision to GIVE AWAY the “Crumbs for the Geese” pattern to anyone who subscribes to my mailing list. You can do that on the right column of this post or by clicking HERE.
NOW……onto the design……
Back in December, I shared a photo of a Cord of Wood and the quilt design that had spring from that photo…..
Then earlier this month, I described an amazing set of hand-dyed fabrics that I bought.
Now it was time to merge these two!!
As I was ironing all of the hand-dyed fabrics, I kept thinking about this pattern and decided that it might be gorgeous to do in blues with touches of yellow!!
I started out by cutting a LOT of 1.5-inch strips…..
Have you ever used a barbell to keep your ruler from sliding?? Try it some time….it really works and you get some exercise at the same time!!
Next I did a lot of sewing, sub-cutting and re-sewing to get it to this stage…..
WOW… I REALLY like those colors!!
Next was making the accent blocks, using paper piecing…..
….and then laying the whole thing out……
I tried flipping some of the triangle sets around……
But all I could see here were Gator mouths!!
I added an orange-ish border…..the only fabric that is not hand-dyed……
…..and voila….this idea has moved from paper to fabric!!!
I am contemplating what type of quilting to add and can’t wait to see it finished.
I am also debating about turning this into a pattern but haven’t made that decision for sure. What do you think…..is this pattern worthy???
