Glimma Flying Geese

Cutting into my Glimma today!  Fabrics by Lotta Jansdotter for Windham Fabrics @windhamgirl

Just a quick post to share what I’m working on today. I’ve finally found the time to cut into my Glimma charmpack! This fabric is the latest by designer Lotta Jansdotter for Windham Fabrics and will be available in April.

I’ve decided to pair it with Essex Linen Yarn Dyed in Black. I am loving the look! I’m using the flying geese paper piece templates I created for one of my autumn pillows a few months ago. You can download the template here.

You can find Essex Linen at the following shops:

Fresh Modern Fabric
The Intrepid Thread
Pink Castle Fabrics
Stash Modern Fabric
Westwood Acres
Fresh-Squeezed Fabrics
Canton Village Quilt Works

Hopefully I’ll be back soon to show you the finished layout!

    Gorgeous! I’ve never used paper piecing for flying geese. I’ll have to try that next time!

    The black is so modern looking. I was resistant to grey and black in quilts, but with other fresh colors, they both look so interesting. I really like the crisp look. Nice technique for flying geese.

    Just wondering about the Essex Linen – is it a more loosely woven fabric compared to normal quilting cotton? If so, I imagine the paper piecing keeps it under control.

    I was just trying to make flying geese but not paper piecing. Those are very nice. I love the colors. I hope you will carry this new line.

    Paper piecing flying geese is genius! I like the usual method for geese, but it seems like they never turn out all exactly right and all exactly the same, so they sometimes veer off-track a bit when I start stitching them together. Thanks for sharing your template!

    I usually have a strong distaste for traditional quilt patterns, but the fabrics you chose here are glorious. I love that you chose patterns that are bigger than the area that you’re piecing (the triangle area). I’m a huge fan of using oversized patterns for smaller things because I appreciate the beauty in the design in little bits and not just blown up really big.

    LOVE that black Essex Linen on your flying geese! It makes it so fresh, and gives it an edgy masculinity, too. Almost reminds me of suiting — which gives me the giggles, because my husband likes to say obnoxious things like, “When are you going to make me a suit with that fancy sewing machine of yours?” Now, doesn’t he just DESERVE a suit with flying geese blocks up and down the sleeves and a nice, big star block on the back of the jacket? ;-)

    Hi, just a quick note. Material Girls Quilts in South Jordan Utah carries the essex linen also. We try to keep most colors in stock but to sell out on occasion.

    Mmmm, need to get some of that black linen. Yum-o. Also need to learn the right way to make those geese, thanks!

    I love the way the geese are flying different directions in the different rows. I think I want to make one of these. I all so like that use of linen. So cute!
