We're back with another sewing project for you to try! We wanted to make a throw that incorporated the entire Zambezi range. For this African savannah themed line we immediately decided on a flying geese design. For a collection that features migratory animals, it seemed fitting that the pattern itself should reflect that theme. After all, flying geese are essentially birds in migration of course!
The Stone, Desert Rose, Golden Canyon and Onyx colors each make a statement on their own as a monochromatic palette, but they also work really well together.
Our Meaghan came up with an original design, playing with triangles of two different sizes.
You can make this design as big or as small as you'd like of course, but Meaghan's finished throw is the perfect size for cozying up in your favorite chair with a good book or some hand sewing.
For the white background, she used our Hawthorne Hues Solid in White.
We think It gives it a crisp, clean look that's so inviting!
As you can see, Meaghan's little kitty agrees! Wait 'till Sabi learns that the throw is backed in Minky in Stone; she'll claim it as her own for sure! If you're interested in trying out the layout, here is the rough sketch. The throw measures 46" wide x 47" long and you can make it with a Zambezi Fat Quarter Bundle, 2 yds of Solid White and 1 1/2 yds of Stone Minky.
We hope you'll share all of your Zambezi projects with us! Simply tag your photo with #ZambeziFabric and #HawthorneThreads and we'll be glad to share them with your fellow makers!
