Working on a New Quilt!

I just realized that it seems like forever since I posted.  I've been working hard on a new quilt design and I'm so excited that I get to use these Riley Blake dots.  Tone on tone red and aqua, and gigantic red and aqua dots for the back.  I am seriously in love with the giant dots! Oh and the chevrons. They're all so happy!


Last week, I finished the cutting.


And this week, the flocks of geese have been flying.  


And hopefully, by the end of the week, I'll have an 80x80 in. quilt top ready for quilting.  Won't be long now.  Chain piecing has been my best friend!

Linking up this week with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday.
