Villa Rosa Designs Fast and Fun Blog Hop

    Hello, and welcome to my turn, on the first-ever Villa Rosa Designs Fast and Fun Blog Hop, a week-long event that celebrates five patterns from Villa Rosa. The blog hop features a collection of five different patterns: Snow Goose, Nantucket, Baby Zip Tease, Hillside Charm, and S’Witched. 



    The instructions fit on one side of a postcard, what a great idea! I had never heard of Villa Rosa Designs, but wow do yourself a favour and check out the designs they are only $2 each.

    My choice was Snow Goose, it is a great pattern to use up leftover jelly roll strips, or in my case scrap pieces.

scrap selection

I pulled out some of my green scraps, no shortage of those around here. As I was invited late to the party I didn't have a lot of time to play with the pattern. I must say however that the pattern does go together quickly. I decided on making a table runner, but I didn't make as many blocks as called for in the pattern. I think with more blocks this would make a lovely bed runner.

a fun variety of greens

For the quilting, I decided I would like some curves for a little bit of visual movement. In the sky section a curvy vine with leaves and in the goose section orange peels.

I used a variegated green thread for the curvy vines
