It is time to put the pieces together in this quilt. After a long think, I realized I didn't want anything that would compete with the strips themselves, but wanted something that added color. I also wanted something that would give it some movement. Ah-ha! Flying Geese!
Eleanor Burns' Flying Geese method (see instructions), making four geese at a time. I don't have her small Flying Geese ruler but it worked out just fine. I made enough for two rows of geese.
In the middle strip I wanted something different and remembered the Bow Tie pattern. Both it and Flying Geese are simple and yet can bring something good to the table. This pattern can bring color and movement to the quilt top.
I made one row of the Bow Tie to run down the middle. Now let's see how they all look together:
I like it! Next step is the borders... I have to look through my stash and find fabric that will bring it all together.
