Flying Geese Dilemma and New Fabric!


Am having a dilemma about these paper-pieced Flying Geese....can't decide the setting/border fabrics.  These two look too bright to me tho I really like the fabrics!  Can't use brown as I used that for the first FG quilt (Jo Morton club pattern).  Maybe I should go take a look at blue again.  Black would probably look nice for the contrast but I don't care for black in my little quilts.....oh what to do?  I want to finish and get on with others! Ideas welcome!





 This is a little eye candy of recently-arrived fabrics.  First two photos are the huge line of "Metropolitan Fair" by Barbara Brackman (1840-1870)....love that it comes in 7 colorways.....(green, red/pink,dark brown, grey blue, tan, and blue......sorry, missed the tan and blue!)


 This is "Toasted" by Jo Morton.......luscious backgrounds!

Representing the "Warmth" collection (Collection for a Cause from Moda) is this little wallhanging I made from a pattern handout that is free with any charm square purchase.....simple little quilt.......based on similar theory as "Yellow Brick Road" or "Turning Twenty" in that there is a formula for cutting the 5" charm squares similar to the formulas for cutting fat quarters in YBR and TT.  When I laid out the blocks, intending to mix them up more and/or twist them, I found that I liked the arrangement of all blocks in the same position....so I left them that way!  


These bolts are from the luscious "Dancing in the Rain" by Edyta Sitar.....love her print fabrics!  
 From 3 Sisters by Moda, this is "Double Chocolate".....didn't get enough of it the first time around so more have been printed!!

  1. I'm loving the flying geese combos....but am more partial to the red print in the second pic. Looks like there's a mustardy color in the print....could that be the second fabric instead of the peachy one? It might not be so bright then.

    LOVE all the fabrics you have just received. I think Pat and I will need to make a trip over one of these days! :o)

  2. Oh, Cyndi. I'm drooling all over my keyboard. What gorgeous fabrics!

    I'm sure that whatever fabric you choose for the borders for your little flying geese quilt with be the "right" one...but I do like the red.

  3. I have to agree with
    Kaaren and Regan
    I like the red too. It has that gorgeous little touch of yellow and lots of lovely movement. Now if you are after a combination I would choose the orange and red but the red is glorious.
    Cheers

  7. Red is my neutral so I vote red! Then I would bind it in a lively-patterned black. It is gonna be a sweetie, whatever you decide!

  9. Hi Cyndi, I receive your newsletters, but I do not know how to become a follower. what I would really like to do is be able to purchase fabric from you but could not locate a phone number. Do you have a website for the shop? I live in Northern California and have not much access to the fabric I love. If it helps I was born in Rumford Maine, all of my relatives are still there in Mexico, and Bath. I need help to purchase some of your terrific fabric. Thanks, Judy Beck, Chico CA
