Sometimes Choices are Easy January 23, 2013Posted by Pam in KC in Uncategorized.
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.
