Last night when I should have been finishing up the border blocks for my January Color Palette Challenge, I couldn’t stop thinking about the January QOV. Heck, the month is almost half over and there was no design swimming around in my head. I began playing with blocks and came up with this.
Of course, I think it needs a pieced border but I ran out of quilt before I got to the border! I love that it’s a bit wonky. It should be quick to make. The flying geese units around the center square that make up the stare are all made from the same blue/background fabric so they can be pieced quickly. I’ll use one background and then make the colored sections scrappy — whatever I can find. I’ll use the same red and the same blue throughout and will probably bind it in red.
It will finish at 61″ x 81″.
What do you think?
