Geese Migration Table Runner

When I originally started working on my Geese Migration quilt, I had a few different layout ideas.   For the magazine publication, I ended up using an on-point design.  But one of the designs I considered was a staggered layout.



When I teach this class, I like to talk about some optional layouts, so I have been wanting to make a small sample of this layout for visual purposes.



So I whipped up four blocks and made a tablerunner.



I set the blocks in a nice gray and backed it with a fun floral that has been in my stash for years.



 I always have so much fun finding just the perfect scrap for these blocks.  This runner is now over at The Stitchin' Post in Sisters Oregon advertising my upcoming class in October.  I think there is still space if you want to sign up!

Nice table runner! I like the offset blocks and the gray is just right with them. I like the quilting too, it fits the modern look of the setting. Wish I were close enough to Sisters to take your class!

What a wonderful table runner! I have wanted to make this block for some time and need to move it to the top of my list. Beautiful finish.

Thanks for the inspiration! I have a few blocks left over from my quilt as well as some pieces/parts I had cut for it. Now I know what to do with it all.

Jeepers, wish I could whip up four blocks like you! This looks wonderful, pretty and kind of artsy in the layout too.

That's a great idea for those blocks! I really like the gray as a background color, too. You know how much I like making tablerunners!

Ditto what Jocelyn said, lol! You are so good at whipping things out. You've got those geese down! The table runner idea is wonderful - a person could finish that in a day! Have fun with the class.

You really have a good eye and imagination for using scraps.

I really like how adding the flying geese changes up the 15-patch blocks so much. Great idea!
