I think that the color gray has a lot of power...and it's really under-utilized. I can't wait to see what you've done with this one!
Lovely colour selection!
this is so, so gorgeous. it's pretty similar to what I've been wanting to do with a particular stash I just accumulated. but, I've never braved flying geese before (I was actually considering just doing half-square triangles to avoid it!). do you know of any good online tutorials I should check out, or a particular ruler I need to get?
Rita - I really like the color combination here. I love how the gray sort of tones down the contrast between the red and black. Just gorgeous.
You always amaze me!!!xoeva
Such a pretty colour combo! Absolutely stunning.
It'll be great !Courtney, check this out for flying geese tutorial:http://blockaday.com/making-your-geese-fly/
I'm gonna love this one.Lots of warm colours ... my faves!Andi x
I love this colour combinations - it is going to be a beautiful quilt.
That's going to be beautiful, Rita. Can't wait to see!
Orange is such a wonderful color, so this will be a wonderful quilt!
This is a great color combination. I'm sure the quilt will be stunning.
Gotta love the classics! Can't wait to see the "flying geese" quilt in it's entirety.
Rita, on the last picture, the middle goose (geese?) in the top row, with the little pink flowers with a few orange flowers....any info on that fabric? The one next to it is totally awesome too, with the grey/orange flowers. Because, you know, I absolutely NEED to purchase more fabric. :)
You've definitely got my attention. I have a thing for flying geese. Don't know why -- but just can't resist them! I'll be waiting....
betsy lynn, yesss! thank you! I knew I had seen a technique somewhere but it'd been at least a year I could not for the life of me remember it. this isn't the exact tutorial I saw but the same method. perfect :)
What a great look, is this a collection or your own choices?
I have been working on some wonky flying geese with Kona Cotton "Ash" as the background colour to the geese. Not sure if anything is going to come of them. It's the first time I've made flying geese, and I'm really enjoying it.
I just love this one...so much. I've been stashing fabrics in these colours for ages now but the drawback of the op shop thing is it just takes so long to get a collection together...sigh.
so my colors!! i love it!
