I often comment on other blogs that Simple is best. I took that statement to heart recently with a quilt I'm calling Grey Goose.
Faithful readers may remember that in October I misplaced the cream dot background I was using in the Meadow Mist Macaron Mystery so I opted to use a similar shade of Grunge to make the 60 flying geese required in that month's clue.
Not only was I not happy with the replacement fabric, I found the original cream background on the shelf right next to the project tray when I put the geese away! I stewed a couple of months and decided I really wanted the geese to blend in rather than stand out and I remade the geese with the cream dot.
So what to do with 60 flying geese? While at Rosie's Calico Cupboard in San Diego earlier this month I specifically looked for a fabric that would coordinate with the geese and found this on the sale table.
I sewed the geese into twosies and alternated them with a square of the new fabric. Simple borders were added today.
Simple and sweet. I so love this!
Retreatin' with my Gal Pals this week in Kentucky. Hoping to get a lot of border finishes so stay tuned!
