My next quilt project is churning in my head as I try to come up with colors and fabrics. You may think this is a little crazy but the quilt is speaking to me. I will be using Denise’s pattern given to me so I could give it a try, and blog about it.
The vision for my quilt is telling a story. I see the border as a storm and the geese swirling and flying to a golden haven in the middle. I have painted my color page with some color choices. It doesn’t have the border on it but I hope you can get the idea. I am thinking the stormy border will be a dark gray. I am hoping the geese color repeat will give an optical illusion of movement. I hope it doesn’t make it too busy though.
I did pick up a few fabrics for the geese and the medallion but still need to find the border and contrast fabric. I think I will go with a light gray for contrast. The picture doesn’t really show the correct color of the 3rd fabric. It’s green but hard to tell.
I intend to try a couple of the blocks this weekend on some scraps to ensure I understand the pattern before I try on the final fabric. I’m really getting excited to start. My two favorite times of quilting is starting and finishing. The challenge and the accomplishment.
