Trying out these flying geese for the sashings on the Threads of Memory Barbara Brackman BOM star blocks, although there are only 12 blocks to be made, I've learnt that it is never too early to think about sashings, borders and layouts, I need to make a few more as I actually need six geese blocks for each side.
Sheila suggested that I use a Kaffe Fassett Aboriginal Dot as a plain and then make the geese from KF scraps, and as I had plenty of the Taupe (or it could be the Silver) I decided to use that. The sashing layout is Rosemary Youngs very excellent idea, scroll down her blog a little bit to view.
These fabric acquisitions arrived today, Quilthome.com have remnant packs they call Surprise Endings, I hadn't bought any of these before, but I'm quite impressed with the variety and amount of fabric (about 2yds worth) for the price - $9.95. This selection was from the Kaffe Fassett Collective and Brandon Mably ranges, what appealed to me is that it is a mystery assortment, surprisingly from all the bits of fabric, there is only one or two that I already have, a great way to increase the stash :)
