Do you sometimes start out with a quilty plan in your head and then your quilt plans itself?
These were the schnizzles from the corners of my geese, I used Washi by Rashida Coleman Hale for Timeless Treasures, I love this line and I think you can still purchase some on etsy try here
And the geese turned into these...3 1/2" x 6 1/2" geese unfinished....in my head they were all in line flying straight and true in their lovely colour groups of 2, 4 or 8...but it wasn't right when I laid them out...they were not happy
These geese were what I was sewing when Mr OWB passed away and to be honest I've struggled with them for 4 months...but I wanted to sew them together and for them to be a quilt not just because I like the fabric...but they didn't want to fly straight... they wanted to twist and turn and change direction...but still show me that they could be pretty together...but more true to how life is for us at the moment
Too deep in the thinking for a quilt?...I quite like how they look but I'm wondering if they would look even more symbolic floating off centre in a background of Kona Snow?
A small bit of organised chaos in the big quilt of life.....LOL
Geese must be in the wind at the moment ...go and have a look at this gorgeous WIP over at Blue Elephant Stitches...GORGEOUS and Amy has a great tutorial for geese out of charm squares
