More 15 minute fun
I have wanted to try my hand at curved flying geese for a while. I grabbed some paper and drew some curved lines. Then I made random cross lines and connected them for a paper piecing foundation. I found some left-over hand dyed green for sky and started grabbing scraps and sewing.
Then I needed to make some fabric to sew the geese into. I love this part. All the colors and patterns are so fun. Finding places where each piece fits is a challenge. This is at the stage where I needed to start adding pieces for size. I wanted this to be 12" x 12".
Voila! I am thinking the orange strip is calling for some hand embroidery. I am not sure what it will be yet, but it will come to me. It is so much fun to go back and forth between more traditional block styles and this more abstract style.
Joyous quilting, everyone.
