Sweet Springs 62" x 64"

It started with a "color run" of hand dyed cotton created by my friend Kristin, which I used for the geese.  The "sky" surrounding the geese is a couple of blue gradation fabrics.  And the piecing comes from Ricky Tims' Dimensional Flying Geese technique.  

Way out of my usual color comfort zone, I think this quilt emerged to be a very structured and masculine composition.  Perfect, I hope, as a gift for my nephew Chris who recently completed his Police Academy studies.  (May he never have cause to draw his weapon.)
