Honk if you love flying geese!

I'm at it again with the flying geese! And this cute quilt is called Gosling-Go-Round. I'm happy to be able to finally share this quilt with you, thanks to the kind ladies at McCall's Quilting.
 Pretty darn exciting! McCall's Quilting September/October issue is featuring this quilt. If you follow me at all you may be surprised at the colors, as I am quite faithful to Civil War repros, but these fabrics actually fall into the reproduction genre. In fact, much to my delight, Judie Rothermel has two new lines that will work very well if you are looking for these colors:
 Judy Rothermel's Strawberries, Blueberries and Chocolate and also her Party of Twelve, both from Marcus Fabrics. According to Marcus Fabrics, "Madder reds, indigoes, chrome yellows, poison greens, double pinks and other colors were used prominently in the 1800s, resulting in vibrant, lively quilts that would brighten any room." 
We are so lucky to be able to find these fabrics by simply doing an internet search! 


If you have a subscription to McCall's Quilting it will be in your mailbox soon, otherwise, look for it in stores around July 30th. 
Now about that name...baby geese are called goslings, I am sure you know, and the geese are rather small, and they are going round and round, and the colors seem young and playful, hence the name, Gosling-Go-Round. You know I love to play with words, I just can't help myself.

I hope you like my quilt!

We got a copy of that magazine in school the other day of all places so I was browsing and was pleasantly surprised to see your pattern in there so "just in case" my magazine wasn't at the house I took the one from school.
I LOVE geese so I'm going to put this on my to do list.

I picked up my magazine on the weekend and was finally able to browze through it last night. I saw your pattern and thought 'yum, love it' and then looked at the designer. Now it is double 'yum'! Congrats!

I love the honk if you love flying geese line. It made me laugh quite loudly. I love this quilt. It is so gorgeous and everything seems to flow together wonderfully. I have not subscribed to that magazine yet but I will have to give it a try.
