New York Beauty Circle of Flying Geese
In the meantime I have finished this little mini, a New York Beauty Circle of Flying Geese. You can find the pattern by Better off Thread here. I had a lot of fun with this pattern, I used up the tiniest bits of scraps of Liberty that I had leftover from cutting hexies for another project and combined it with the Melange Yarn Dye fabric that I got from here. The Melange is beautiful to work with as it has the look of linen but is 100% cotton and sews beautifully without the fraying that occurs with linen. I adapted this pattern by appliqueing the centers instead of the four separate pieces.
Originally I had wanted to make this into a cushion cover as I've been told I make all of my projects too big and that it is ok if I do a few smaller ones once in a while. So, what happens? I try to make a small cushion cover and even that ends up too big! I have to laugh. Oh well. I hope to quilt this this afternoon once I decide how I will do it. This could be a bit of a challenge for me.
