Geese Migration Replay

Here it is - My first finish for 2017!

(Okay, most of the work was completed in 2016 but for me, a quilt is not finished until the binding is sewn on.  So it counts for this new year!)


Here is Geese Migration II.

Now that I am teaching classes on this quilt rather frequently, I needed a second quilt for display/trunk show purposes.  The second one was as fun to make as the first!









This quilt was all pulled from the scrap bin with the exception of the background fabric.  For that I used Craftsy's Boudless Aura Blender in taupe.


This one came out a bit brighter than my last one.  It wasn't planned that way,  just the scraps I had.  That is the fascinating thing about this technique.












Here is a photo of my original quilt.  The background for this one was a yarn dyed linen.



I really like how colorful this one is.  If you want to see this same quilt finished by other quilters, you can see some on my Pinterest board.  You can also see some on Instagram using the hashtag #geesemigrationquilt.  There are some really pretty ones out there!

If your guild or sewing group wants to discuss me teaching this class, feel free to drop me a line!


Now it is time to get another scrap quilt started!

  3. I love this so much! I think I actually like the second version more than the first one because it has more pink in it! :)

  4. The original caught my eye the first time I saw it. This version has even more visual appeal. I may have to get around to making one of these.

  5. Outstanding! I am trying to make a switch from all over the map scrappiness to blocks and quilts that are more color themed. This looks like a great block to try.....

  8. Mine is going with me to retreat next week. I'm taking 3 or 4 potential sashing fabrics so that the "village" can help me make a decision. You know, it takes a village ...

  18. Oh this looks like a GREAT way to use up scraps. I noticed you said you teach the class. Is there a pattern or a book about this as well? Have you ever done a quiltalong for this quilt? Or will you?

  19. Both quilts are beautiful, but I'm partial to the brighter one. It is neat seeing how your available scraps changed the look.

  26. This one is a real winner. How I wish I could take a class, but I don't travel these days. What size are the squares? I would love to do it as a Rainbow Scrap Challenge this year. Love the color gradient. Thanks again for your inspiration.

  27. Lovely fabrics/colors - and what an interesting block! Your quilt setting really adds to it all too! Thanks for sharing.

  28. Gorgeous finish! I really like the bright colors in this version. This quilt is on my to do list. It's been in the running for my RSC quilt for a couple of years now, it just hasn't made it to the top of the list yet. Your version really makes me want to start one now.

  29. It's beautiful! I love the brights. A finish isn't a finish to me either if the binding's not on (unless it's a quilt I longarmed for a customer.) You're off to a great start this year!

  30. It's beautiful - congratulations on the finish!

  32. I really like how that one came out.

  33. Absolutely beautiful quilt and colors on both, but the 2017 most currently finished one just tugs at my quilting fingers. Lock blocks would work great on this pattern. And is there a pattern we can download by chance?

  35. Love your quilt every time it floats through on Pinterest. And since you finished it in 2017, your fabric usage is already in the negatives!

  36. Absolutely gorgeous! Really like how the colours shine in it!
