I honestly do not know where the month of March has gone. With the exception of this challenge, I promised myself that I would not start a new project until I completed some UFO's (and I cant believe that I actually stuck to this resolve!)
I was happy with the colors because I have been wanting to work with black in a quilt. I pulled out my scraps and had an idea that was a bit ambitious. My inspiration was my hand made matryoshka doll with chimes inside which I believe is also called a "nevalaska". I got this in Sitka, Alaska on a cruise several years ago. Its really pretty with a nice chime, kinda like a super fancy weeble wobble.
Soon though, time ran out and I had to lay this project aside. I decided to create a mini that incorporated the curves of the black fabric in the design. I tried creating some wonky flying geese and I liked the look, but I did not leave enough seam allowance on the sides. When I sewed the geese together, the side points of the geese were cut off.
So, I took some scraps and started sewing them randomly and I came up with this mini for the AAQI. It is machine pieced and hand quilted and measures just a hair under 9 X 12. It currently does not have a title.

Also, its the first of the month so I am linking up to the Small Blog Meet at Lily's Quilts. I always enjoy this meet up because I get a chance to discover new blogs.
