The other thing that slowed me down was trying to decide on my color palette. Bonnie's colors are great, but I wanted to come up with my own combination. It wasn't until I came across this piece in my stash that I decided what direction to take.
Some of my colors are going to be the same as Bonnie's. There is a grey print as a constant, and I am also using turquoise and purple in the same places she did. Where she has lime green, I am going to use fuchsia, and instead of black-on-white prints for background, I am going with dark grey and black prints. Here is most of the collection I am working from. (I can see from the photo that there is a paisley print in the black prints that shows up much lighter than the rest. I knew that one might be a problem!)
So far I have made about 100 four-patch blocks, and I am making good progress with my flying geese. Can't wait to see what comes next!
I will be linking up to Patchwork Times for Design Wall Monday and also the Easy Street link-up to see other people's progress.
