Pattern design a perfect blizzard activity!

We have a storm headed our way with 14" of snow predicted!

So I am hiding inside as much as possible for the next 24hrs until the worst has passed.

I decided to try my hand at a circle of geese style pattern, there are several versions on the internet but none were quite what I wanted so I decided to try to design one myself.  I wanted a paper piecing design I KNEW was easy to make rather than a complex version like some. I wanted it to be almost a color wheel effect with a central star that can be easily paper pieced as well and just a plain narrow border to frame it. So this is what I came up with:



Here's another color scheme:



I think for those who like FMQ all the blank space is a great playground but I will do a very simple stitch in the ditch or something like that. I'm gonna keep playing with the colors, who knows how the final version I make will look!

  1. liking both of these colourways, look forward to seeing one made. We are being threatened with a bit of cold weather at the end of the week, meant to have the roof replaced, the scaffolding is up but the weather is too wet and windy s far for the roofers!
