My husband came back from the mailbox last weekend with a little spring in his step and a grin on his face. He found the latest Connecting Threads catalog and remembered to flip through it to find my patterns. It's a toss up whether he or my mom are my biggest cheerleader.
There it is on page 21: Connecting Geese by Canuck Quilter Designs, exclusive to Connecting Threads, sewn up by their sample sewers in their new Elemental Nuances fabric line. They are selling kits as well as pattern downloads.
You may also recognize the placemats and runner on page 23.
I really think the pattern works well with just about any fabric style or color palette. These are certainly different from mine in bright blue and lime batiks, but no less effective in an all-grown up, elegant way. I'm tempted to order some of that fabric for a new set for my table.
I colored both patterns in EQ using digital swatches of this fabric line, but this is the first time I have seen them actually sewn up. Since the fabric was not yet available in April, when I had to test the pattern, I have a different version of the Connecting Geese quilt. Well, I have a top. I haven't gotten around to quilting it yet, but with the cool fall weather, this fall top is calling to me and just might become a finished quilt sooner than later. Unless, of course, a squirrel pops in, which we all know is a very strong possibility...
I'll leave you with the digital image of Connecting Geese and my test version. What colours and fabrics would you make this in?
