#5

Lap Quilt for a Veteran #5 is a flimsy and I like it. I hope some Veteran in a wheelchair will find it suits his taste.

While I was  making this, I started a new leader-ender project. I'm using the same design as Ninety Degrees in the Shade but with contemporary fabrics from the Kaffe Fassett Collective. The blocks won't have the final 1" border around each; instead I will use some nice gray lattice and cornerstones as yet to be determined.

I want to start a sixth LQ for a Veteran, but haven't decided the design for it yet. I'm looking at my Pinterest board to see what might strike my fancy. I will delve back into my Civil War bin for the fabrics.

I like it, too! The colors you've used are great -- and I can also imagine the design in other colorways/fabric styles.

Love the many colorful geese flying in all different directions! This is a great quilt, too, and someone will surely be pleased to receive it.

Well done!

Hugs!

The more I see simple flying geese quilts, the more I like them. I'm afraid I've added yet another project to that never ending bucket list.....
