Problem solved

So. Problem solved. I was wondering the other day what to use on the back of my Goose quilt. You all (including those who commented on Facebook) were very helpful. I had in mind to use a big pink/red line-drawn floral on the back. I could see it in my mind’s eye, but had nothing on the shelves that would work. I searched several websites and couldn’t find anything there, either. But! While I was looking, I came across this:

Problem solved
Flamingos!

Yes, flamingos! If you can even vaguely understand my goofy sense of humor, you’ll understand that I was tickled silly at the idea of flamingos to back Goose in the Pond blocks. Flamingos at the Waterin’ Hole, maybe? Flamingoose?

Anyway, I’ve ordered it and it’s winging its way to me as I type. (See what I did there? Winging?) I also ordered a little piece of the darkest solid (Kona solid in Valentine) to use as the binding. I think it’ll help contain all the movement going on in the quilt.

Problem solved
Kona solid in Valentine

By the way, do you ever sew with Kona? I am using more solids lately, and it’s my favorite. Paired up with Aurifil 50-weight thread, it’s such a pleasure to sew. I buy the Kona here. No affiliations, just a happy quilter!

While I wait for the back and binding fabrics to fly to my mailbox (groan), all I have to do is give it a title. What name would you give it?

Throw some names at me! I’ll tell you the winner in a future post…or maybe I’ll open it up for a vote. What do you think?
