All New!

In the last two weeks I have started a couple of new projects. 
One of them is this Wild Goose Chase kit that came from the stash of a quilt camp friend, Kitty.
In the pattern, there were pages upon pages for the paper pieced flying geese--not my favorite method. I decided to use my Quilt in A Day ruler to make the geese units. I needed to add a few extra fabrics to be able to do that, also making it a little bit scrappy--a good thing, in my book. 
Piecing the geese using Eleanor Burns' technique went pretty quickly--lots of geese happening! 

I changed out the very bright orange fabric that was in the kit and used two deeper cheddar colored fabrics from my stash for the rest of the quilt.



These blocks go together pretty quickly when the geese are all ready to go! 
This is all nine blocks set together as shown in the pattern. Very striking, I think. 
It's difficult to see in this photo, but there are two different blues used in the  backgrounds.
I was a little unhappy with this setting though, because the top seems very dark--and it's only 36 inches square.  

I re-set the blocks on my design wall and grabbed some cheddar squares from my 2.5" scrap box.  I liked that the sashing added some lightness and also made it a bit larger, but, hmmm......still not sure.

Then I remembered that I had a good sized chunk of this fabric in my stash. It's from one of the same lines of fabric included in the kit. There had been a small piece of it in the kit labeled for use in the dark parts of the geese. (I had used it as a light when I made my geese units.)

I cut it to finish at the same width as the geese units. This isn't sewn together yet. It's a little crazy looking but I kind of like it. Or maybe I am just mesmerized by those wavy stripes?
There will be a narrow cheddar inner border and a small border from the same floral in the darkest blocks. 

It has an hypnotic effect, no?

  22. Thanks for sharing your thoughts along the way. The sashing fabric was an excellent choice and certainly encourages your eye to travel around the quilt. Are you going to bind it in cheddar?
