My nephew is getting married in October and I want to make a quilt as a wedding gift. I've been trying out all different ideas in EQ7 and keep coming back to blocks that involve Flying Geese - my favorite block.
I'm going to be using this yummy fat quarter bundle called Blueberry Park. These designs are actually printed on top of Kona solids - something I've not seen before. I'll use a solid white white as the background fabric since all those designs are a very bright white. The binding will be from the darkest color which is called Indigo.
(Isn't breaking open that FQ bundle a tough thing to do? It always looks so pretty all tied up together.)
A few days ago, I saw this video from Missouri Quilt company for a block Jenny is calling Tangled Geese. Isn't this a fun block? Her tutorial is great for using a jelly roll but since I'm starting with FQs, I can use my favorite 'no-waste' method for Flying Geese.
I've got some more work to do on planning because I want to think about whether I let it all go random colors or move the color from dark to light.
I'm still a novice in using EQ7 but I'll hopefully be able to figure out how to trying out different color patterns without too much work.
But the best part, since I know I want a quilt with geese, I can get started making some geese. Decisions on color placement can come later.
Have a wonderful day!
