WIP Wednesday - Flying Geese

I managed to resist getting started on a new project and instead focused on my WIPs for the past week or so. You know as well as I do that sometimes, that in itself is quite the feat given all the gorgeous quilts everywhere in blogland.

I will be linking up at Lee's for WIP Wednesday, so here is what I've been working on lately.

First, I finished my granny squares quilt. To read the Ta Da post and get all the details (and pictures), click here.

Second, I finished piecing my Flying Geese top.

The picture isn't great - the colours really pop in real life. It measures about 30" squares and will look fabulous on my sewing room wall once it's all quilted. I have a bunch of ideas floating around in my head for the quilting of this one and I cannot wait to get started.

But, my Flying Geese will have to wait until it can be quilted. Right now, I've got my Star Surround on the sewing machine in the country (which is the machine i use for FMQ).

I love pebbles! :-)

I've also been working on small things for the next meeting of the Montreal Modern Quilt Guild. Will post pictures as soon as they are done.

And what have you been up to this week? If you need inspiration, click on the WIP Wednesday button in my sidebar and check put what people are working on this week.

Thank you for stopping by!
