WIP-wednesday rainbow geese

Linking up with freshly pieced again today, sharing another baby quilt I started this week. I've had this idea on my list of to-do's for a long time.  I am really into rainbow themes right now, and I always love flying geese, so I am putting them together in one quilt. 
 I'm getting excited to see it.  I underestimated how many geese I would need (guessing never works) so I am back to cutting again.  Someday I'll use the old adage, measure twice, cut once.  I just get too excited to get started and don't want to spend time figuring things out.

  1. What a pretty stack of fabrics! Sounds like a very fun project. We're doing a rainbow quilt-along at my blog right now. It must be rainbow season!

    Wonder what would happen if you let your little one hand the blocks to you one at a time and that is the order in which you sew them together.....hummmm

  8. I never ever check the amounts I need when I start cutting. I usually end up short, and have to go through another round of cutting and piecing. I hate having leftover pieced fabric though, so I guess it works!

  24. Hey, I happened upon your blog this morning and found you live in Denver, me too! You have gorgeous fabric, and I'm assuming you order it online, but I'm wondering if there are any local shops you like. All of the quilt shops I've been to are carrying very dated fabric.

  25. PS- I just noticed you have mormon.org on your blog roll. My husband was on the team that re-designed it. I'm in Denver North Stake. :)

  26. hi mindelicious, I do order a lot of my fabric online, but a new shop opened in my area (Littleton/centennial), Snappy Quilts, and it's got great stuff. Check it out. There is also Fancy Tiger, it's closer to downtown, and they have cute stuff too.
