Whatever, just fix it please.
The Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival is going on this week in Hampton, Virginia. Renea and I are driving down there early early this morning and we'll stay overnight - weather, please be kind to us! No snow, no ice, please!!! The weather report for this area today is calling for "spotty slick spots" in the afternoon; it's a 3 hour drive so by then we'll be in Hampton and dealing with whatever their weather is locally. We hope to hook up with Penny (Livin' Blue Quilter) and Yetunde (Sistah Stitchalot) at some point - probably for a meal.
I'm still working on (evidently, I'm not!) my homespun flying geese that were inspired by an antique quilt Bonnie at Quiltville found. I told myself several weeks ago that if I could do one strip a day, in six days it would be all done, yes!
I didn't like it. Somehow that shade looks too dark for the homespuns, and I couldn't find another solid that was just the right shade. Next I tried this brown, and I think this is the one I'll go with:
The color isn't reading true on screen but it looks great with the homespun! The geese are six inches wide, the strips between will be three inches. I want to go ahead and get this finished so I can put those fabrics away, so I'll probably pick it up when I return from Hampton.
