DQS Inspiration and doodles

I've been having such a good time following all the discussions on the DQS site, and being inspired by everyone's creativity and pictures.  I've been doing a little stalking of my partner - it's a secret swap, so we don't know who is making for us - and I think I've come up with a colour scheme, at least in my head, of what will work for them.  Now to go dig through my stash and determine if a shopping trip is required!
Last night I sketched out very quickly, an idea that came to me, that I think will evolve into my swap quilt, but it's early days yet! Here's the rough sketch - it will be a swirl of flying geese in bright hot colours against a turquoise sky (think opposites on the colour wheel) - which will, hopefully, have the feather quilting design stand out.  My tentative name is Birds of a Feather.  Whaddaya think?

Hi Janet.
'Birds of Feather' flock together sounds just right for your quilt, I like your colour choice, they will bring a touch of vibrancy to your quilt.

Good luck with your design.

I'e just been catching up after my computer went down two weeks ago. You have been making some terrific projects - the mini QY swap was amazing. This design looks great! Cheers, Ann :-)
