Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

Sometimes Choices are Easy


Yes, these are wonky string geese like the ones that Bonnie are making.  Her pattern can be found HERE.

It was not my intention of starting a new quilt. (Isn’t that what we all say?) But since I have this basket of shirt tails to deal with, I figured I could play with some of the resulting strings.

I keep telling myself that I don’t have yardage in my stash – but then I find exactly what I need. Admittedly I knew I had 2 or 3 yards of the yellow — I bought it to use as the background of a stack-n-whack with the Halloween Micky Mouse.  Yellow skies weren’t my first choice  I thought they would be too bright and in your face.  My first choice was scrappy dark green — scrappy on the theory that I “don’t have yardage in my stash”.  I was surprised to find 1 1/2 yards — exactly what I need for 125 – 3 x 6 geese.  Except it’s not.

The yellow is the best choice.  And there is plenty of it so I can make a bigger quilt if I desire.  I’m thinking 150 geese.

2 Thoughts on “Sometimes Choices are Easy

  1. A good start to do on Bonnie’s Birthday. She is good at making us want to do what she’s doing. I still have to put my Easy Street Blocks together. I didn’t even do the DWM post this week. That’s a first since about 3 years of them. Nothing to show and I was gone to the memorial for my FIL. Love the string geese you made. The green ones could work into the border or corners somehow.

  2. These are GREAT! I am working on some string geese myself. Mine are patriotic themed. Can’t wait to see the final project!
