Design Wall Monday

I was busy this weekend and didn't get pictures of any of the quilts I recently blogged about. Of course it's raining, so it isn't going to happen right now either. Darn it!

I guess I'll just hang them on the design and get pictures that way....after I take down what's up there now!  :-)

I've just been throwing the giant flying geese blocks up (8" x 16") on the wall as I complete them. This is not the order they will be in the final quilt. That will be decided when I complete the other 24 blocks.

The pattern is called Four Winds and the designer is Amber Corcoran of Fancy Tiger Crafts. 

I love flying geese and Kaffe Fassett fabrics, so I've married the two and am making a quilt for our bed. I'm making the queen/king version and can't wait to see it complete.

These flying geese on steroids are made using the no-waste method and are constructed four at a time. It's quick, easy, and accurate! I've only spent a couple of hours on this (including my cutting) and the last 24 blocks are almost done. I just need to make the final cut, press, and trim off dog ears.

I think this will be a nice summer quilt for us!

What are you working on today?

This will be a great quilt. At first glance I thought it was a 16" block--what a great idea to make giant flying geese. Look forward to seeing it finished.

I love flying geese and Kaffe fabrics, too. This is going to be a fun, beautiful quilt.

No waste geese are the best. Wow colors and fabrics you're playing with there!
