If you were to ask me to name the fabric lines I'm currently most excited to work with, April Rhodes' Wanderer for Art Gallery Fabrics would be at the top of the list. (For the record, so would Maureen Cracknell's Wild & Free line and Katarina Roccella's Recollection line. AGF is killin' it right now.)
So when April contacted me and asked if I'd like a bit of early-release Wanderer to play with, I did 3 back handsprings and sang a few spirituals (OK, not really) before answering with a resounding YES. I supplemented April's beautiful prints with a few coordinating AGF Pure Elements solids and began thinking about what I would make with them.
At around the same time, I finally got around to checking Craftsy out. (A bit late to the party, I know.) What a great resource for quilt patterns and ideas! I stumbled across a pattern called Goose Feathers by Sarah Wheelwright and, I swear, I heard fireworks going off. It's a great fit for what I wanted to do with my Wanderer stack.
I'm not quite done with my quilt top yet -- I've finished all blocks except for the paper-pieced arrow quills. Once I finish them off, I'll be back to post pictures of the completed quilt. In the meantime, here are a few work-in-process shots to whet your appetite:
Lots & lots of HSTs! I am using AGF Pure Elements solid in Sandstone for the background. I love the way the colors are all playing together and cannot wait to see this one come together.
