Oh. Crap. I just cut 80 rectangles at 2 1/2"x3" not 2"x3 1/2". GROAN. Fine. No big deal, we'll just set aside those mistake rectangles and use them elsewhere...like maybe in my schnitzel & boo Mini Quilt Swap partner's quilt...
After a little digging, I came up with a piece of white linen with a silver tinselly thread stripe throughout. Perfection! 80 rectangles cut the right way AND NOW we're ready to get started.
I have decided that going with just two fabrics, instead of several different low-values and several different colorful scraps, for the Drunk Geese was perfect for me. I love that Crystal's pattern gives us the freedom to do whatever we want. We're designing and creating at the same time. That's pretty dang cool. The uniformity in color will tone down the wonky geese in my quilt, which is great for me because I have plans to get crazy with those awesome little pluses. Here's a close up of my progress:
I do love me some animal print! Especially zebra!
Anyway, check out Angela's post last week for the links to check out everyone else's progress. You should also definitely scroll through the #modernmedallion hashtag on Instagram. There are some seriously awesome quilts happening over there! I'll update during the week as I get the chance!
