I'm starting to work on one more quilt which is variation of my Modern Flying Geese with Variations pattern. Version 4 is probably the most consistent with Modern Aesthetics of the five variations in my pattern.
I'm using a mix of fabric lines: Carolyn Friedlander's Line "Botanics", coordinating Kona cottons assembled by fabricBUBB on Etsy, Art Gallery "Gramercy Park" by Leah Duncan and an assortment of cream fabrics with low volume prints. (The collection of Kona's is so beautiful I would have wanted it even if I hadn't been collecting fabrics in the "Botanics" line).
The pairs of flying geese in the quilt float in negative space. I'm thinking I might make this quilt larger than the 40 x 52 size in the pattern. I think more negative space will be a good thing...and make the quilt more cuddly too!
The flying geese are done and the background is cut out. Quilt assembly is pending!
From other blogs:
Have you seen Abby Glassenberg's post about "How Much Fabric Designers Earn--an inside look" on her blog, While she Naps? If you buy fabric or are fans of particular fabric designers, Abby's post from November 3, 2014 is a must read. Once again Abby has written an amazing piece based on excellent research. Take a few minutes to read the comments at the end of the post. They are really interesting too.
Tomorrow Abby is posting a piece on designing fabrics for Joann's Fabrics. I know it is going to be fascinating reading!
