The majority wants to see the stash project before starting. Maybe later we’ll do a mystery but to tell you the truth, I’ve never done a mystery that I was thrilled with. I just like to know what the end result is going to be . . part of my nature I suppose. I’ve seen some gorgeous mystery quilts . . just not my own.
Here’s the project I’ve planned. Simple, simple! It’s a simple block with outer flying geese added. Heck, there may be a block just like this and there may even be a setting similar. This isn’t a top that required a whole lot of creativity to come up with the design. Plain blocks . . plain setting, a pieced sashing. But, it is a great way to use the stash.
This plan will produce a top that is 67″ x 85-1/2″ finished. But, I want mine to be larger and I can hardly stand to make a quilt without pieced borders so here are a couple of options for my own top:
Or, by coloring the same border blocks differently, I end up with this:
I might like this second one better. What do you think?
The top I make will be 84″ x 100″ and it is for a friend.
Now that you’ve seen it, who’s going to do it with me?
