The Plan

Weaving geese compressed
I’ve been playing with graph paper and coloured pencils and think my quilter’s block may have finally cleared.  I have a plan for the bright fabrics I posted about a few weeks ago!
Well, a partial plan anyway.  If my calculations are correct, I have plenty of fabric to make the 128 flying geese for this 46”x60” quilt center.  99 of them will be 2”x4” finished, and 29 will be 3”x6” finished.
I have no idea what the plan is for borders, though I’m pretty sure the quilt will need some.  Then again, maybe a scrappy binding will do the trick.  I’ll wait and see how the center comes together to decide.
Getting this one started will be my reward for quilting the placemats and runners I started the last couple of months.  I think I should also cut fabric for the pieced borders of Whimsy first.  Is there any chance my mind will stay made up about these brights in the meantime? :)
