of gray

I bordered my quilt with flying geese units. It seemed appropriate for a quilt featuring wild animals. I had intended originally to surround the animals with maple leaves as a sort of homage to the Canadian wilds, but the geese asserted themselves and I was powerless to resist. The shades of gray in the geese make the solid gray sashing sing I think.
I had also planned to cluster other smaller wild animals in vignettes in an outer-outer border, but the quilt felt that it was finished and I have listened to it. They always know. This may mean that I will have to make another quilt featuring beavers and squirrels but so be it.
