I’m planning ahead. Don’t act so surprised. I’m in the delightful One Block Over quilting bee. Fun, fun, fun! You get to play with other people’s fabric and make interesting (fun!) blocks. My block month is coming up in May. I have an idea of what I’d like, but I thought I’d better try out some color combos before committing. With the help of my trusty Kona solids color card, I plotted and planned and wandered to see where I could get the most colors at the fewest places.
Yesterday, a gorgeous package arrived from Kathy’s wonderful Pink Chalk Fabrics. OH MY!
Today, an urgent yellow package came from Hancock’s of Paducah to round out the selections:
So many delicious colors from which to choose!
I added in some Kona Snow to lighten things up and made some geese.
I haven’t decided which flying geese block I’d like to use, so I haven’t sewn these together. But I am enjoying the color play and hope to be prepared to mail out packages to the One Block Over participants later in April.
There are a lot of flying geese patterns, methods, etc., out there. I used this one for the Dutchman’s Puzzle block over at the Country Crossroads Quilters guild page. My geese aren’t arranged in the Dutchman’s Puzzle color layout in my photo, but I’m still playing around.
I see geese in my future.
