Scrappy Goodness Coming

One of the big projects that I have coming up in the very near future will be a queen-sized scrappy quilt that will be a wedding present.

I'm saw a quilt layout idea from Missouri Star Quilt Company that I'm planning to use for the quilt.  I love that the look of the alternating blocks is achieved with just one block.

My version will be in blues, aquas, teals, purples with a touch of orange.  I plan to do scrappy for the stars and pinwheels, and have a single fabric for the background (I know shock of shocks).

I'd debated on what size to make the squares, but I've decided on 15" then I'll only need 25 blocks to make the quilt.   A good thing when there are a whole mess of flying geese in this quilt (260 of them to be precise!). 

I've already figured out what i want to do with the border so that is a good thing.  and to me this quilt just calls out for a pieced border.   Thankfully tho I can add it as I sew the rows together.  Then finish with a solid outer border.   =)

Now to get started on it because  it's gonna take me a while to get made....lol.   And I'd love to have the top finished shortly after the new year so I can send it off for quilting and have plenty of time to get it back to me before the wedding.

Gratitudes:

1. For an easy pattern to make for the wedding present

2. For having the stash to pull the needed fabrics from for it.
