I’m glad I finally have something to post on Work in Progress Wednesday, though it is more what is up on the design wall than actual progress. After I finished up my flying geese quilt over the weekend (which I will post pictures of later in the week), I had to start concentrating on the requirements of my new job and haven’t had much energy for actual quilting, but I have had enough to think about a small project I could do this month.
Some time ago, I came across the Free Motion Quilting Challenge organized by Quilt Shop Gal. Each month she identifies a FMQ expert, and you are challenged to use techniques from one of their books/videos/tutorials to make a pillow. This month’s expert is Angela Walters. She is one of my favorite sources of inspiration for free motion quilting, and I have a set of scraps from my flying geese quilt that should be enough to come up with a pillow. A can definitely see a pillow to go with the quilt on my couch.
Here’s what I have to work with. There are few flying geese that dd not get incorporated into the quilt because they did not have enough contrast.
I have a collection of scraps from the various fabrics in that were in the quilt.
And I also have quite a collection of bonus half square triangles. Plus, I replenished my Doe fabrics when I was in the US, so I should have no shortage of fabrics. The question is what design! With a little help from the Doe fabrics I bought I suspect that I have enough scraps to make 2-3 pillows (only some are in the pictures).
I’m linking this up to Let’s Bee Social. Head on over to see what people are working on.
