getting it together

After spending a delightful afternoon with Melody and some fellow Bad Ass Quilters, I am inspired once again.  And not to take away from the charms of these artists, but the sunshine and 72 degree temperatures helped as well. We were all reveling in the glorious weather.  

The quilt for nephew and bride, has come together at last.  So without further ado

to be quilted, soon, very soon

 After chatting with the kids about what they might like to have, I tuned in on a few of their key words:
earth tones
an original Mary quilt


greens, earth tones, neutrals = my loose interpretation of colors
traditional = flying geese
 triangles + original = circles with loosely drawn geese
(my theory being, that no two geese are exactly alike)
= an original Mary quilt

This quilt was one of those that I felt my way blindly throughout the making, as I am not so good at discerning just what someone else's vision might be.  
Here's to hoping the kids will like it once it is quilted.  
Which is rumored to be soon, very soon.  
Cheers, y'all

Wow! I absolutely love this quilt! It's original and very YOU! I see an abstract, modern interpretation of a double wedding ring with flying geese. The background lights are entertaining, yet they give the geese room to fly wherever they like. Have fun quilting it. They will cherish it forever.
