Dear Quilty : Geese Migration Quilt





I am not sure that I shared with you that my Geese Migration quilt ended up on the cover of Mary Fons' book Dear Quilty.

This book is a compilation of twelve quilts selected from the 4 years Quilty magazine was published.  I am honored to have my quilt on the cover!










If you hurry over to Sew Mama Sew, they are currently hosting a giveaway for a copy of the book.  There are some beautiful quilts in the book and the patterns are perfect for beginners and advanced quilters alike.  Sew Mama Sew also have available a Geese Migration Quilt PDF Tutorial so you can make the quilt yourself if you want to tame your scrap bins! 



If you do make the quilt, I hope you share it with me!

I love flying geese and I love scrappy, Your quilt is beautiful and has the best of both worlds. You truly have a talent to convert trash to treasure! When you make someone (me) want to hurry through the quilt they are making so they can have scraps, you have accomplished something big!
