Foxy Geese and Fabric Tuesday!

I visited their site - such a nice selection to browse!
On Mother's Day (and my birthday) I like to just sew whatever I want for fun.  And it usually means starting a new project, and often a project with no real purpose!  Ha!  And so this Mother's Day was the same, I decided I wanted to put together a simple and modern flying geese quilt.


Mostly the quilt's fabrics are Outfoxed by Lizzy House.  There is also one print (I think) of Joel Dewberry's Heirloom (love love this line more and more everyday, I use it so much!!).


Again this was a fun color departure for me. I love all colors, I just really love color.  But like I've said many times, I lean way more towards blues and greens.  So purples, pinks and oranges so different for me and exciting :)  I've been very mindful of this and when choosing new fabrics for my stash and I really try to be more diverse!


When and how this will be quilted?  TBD.  I've looked around for some quilting ideas, I'll keep it simple, probably following the peaks of the geese, just working out exactly how I'll do it.  When this will happen....? :)  The finished size is about 43" x 50".
