What materials did you use? Marimekko fabric and batiks

What are you most proud of? I think the quilting enhances the simple shapes and strong colors.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I used a varigated thread and repeated the triangles from the piecing in the quilting design as Angela suggested in the lesson. Because I use a home sewing machine, I attached freezer paper triangles in various sizes, scattered across the color field. I quilted around them without marking on the quilit top.

I love the echoing of the triangles and your fabric choice is super.

Is this your original design? I'd it is, may I have your permission to use it as inspiration without actually copying it? If not, where did you get the design? Thanks for your help

Yes it is my design and yes you may use it as inspiration. The background fabric is Marimekko and all those colors were in one fabric. The geese are pieced but the circles are not......dsheck
