More Fabric!

Yes, I brought more fabric (and a few notions) into the house today.  Next week I’ve got time on the long arm machine reserved.  My original intention was to take the Compass Lone Star and the Red, White & Blue Chain of Stars to work on.  However, following my husband’s suggestion, I printed out a drawing of the Chain of Stars and drew in a quilt design.  We both like it and I can do it using my walking foot on my sewing machine.  So, I needed to find another quilt to take with me.

After looking through my tops and watching Patsy Thompson’s Free Motion Fun — with feathers! Volume 1, I’ve settled on No Blue Geese in my Tropical Garden.  The lengthy name comes from the pattern title “Geese in My Garden” and the fact that there is no blue in the quilt top.  At the time I made it every quilt I made had some blue — even the pink quilt!

It was only after I got home with the bright dots on black for the backing, that I realized that there’s blue in the fabric.  Oh, well, there still are no blue geese on the quilt top.

The two FQs are for those tiny stars I’m making.

Well, as soon as the dryer is done I’m going to fold the fabric so it will be ready for me to piece into backings tomorrow.
