Would you believe this was the start of the pink and brown quilt I planned to make? After stacking up my Civil War pinks and browns and viewing such quilts on google images I reconsidered. This is the block anyway. I've been wanting to do something with flying geese for a while. I prefer to make 'em the old fashioned way. I rotary cut individual, loose triangles, sew them together and press. Amen. It will be fun to see how big this one gets.
I was browsing through the catalog from Hancock's the other day. I was so close to placing an order when Sue came over with Cabin Fever. It's not like she gave it to me or anything, but I wanted to find some more blue to border the Delectable Mountains quilt. So yesterday we went on a shop hop. Good thing I checked that the furthest shop of choice was closed on Sunday. Milton was first. I only stopped once on the way there to check the map. It just didn't look familiar in winter. They had the blue I needed and I was low on greens and I had to check the clearance and yes, I was having a good time. And no, these won't all go in the same quilt. Janesville next. We walked in on a sale. Yippee. I love their Civil War prints. I think I showed pretty good restraint considering the sale. I was looking for what I saw in the catalog and I found them.
We were glad to get out of the house. We first thought we'd go on Tuesday but the forecast is for 6 to 8" more snow. That's fine with me. I've got quilting to do. And I'll go check out the blogs linked up at Judy's.
