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!

It's gorgeous! I love how the colors blend.

Love it! I loved the first one but I think I love this one even more. Maybe moving up on my wish list to make...

Alison said...

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! :)

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.

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.....

I thought I loved the original, but find that I love this one even more!!!

Karen said...

very pretty colors - I love the look

Libby in TN said...

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 ...

Vicki in MN said...

Just as beautiful as the first, but the brighter speaks to me more!

newsurfiegirl said...

WOW! that is stunning!

LIttle Penguin Quilts said...

Both versions are so beautiful! Lucky quilters who get to take a class from you and make it! Where are you selling the pattern? I couldn't find it on Craftsy. I think I need to have it! :)

Momi machts said...

scraphappy said...

Congratulations on your first finish of the new year. I might just like the colors in this one even better than in the original. Those purples really speak to me. Beautiful!

Marie said...

Shauna said...

em's scrapbag said...

Congrats on a wonderful finish! I love the cool colors in this one. So soothing

Linda @ kokaquilts said...

I too love them both! Funny, I was just thinking a 'flying geese' quilt was on my horizon this year!

Pamela Arbour said...

I say it definitely counts for 2017. It is a finish. Congratulations. It turned out beautiful.

Dona said...

WOW!! It turned out just beautiful. Both quilts are stunning..

Janice Holton said...

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?

Jasmine said...

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

sewyouquilt2 said...

love this beautiful quilt. I can see lots of possibilities here. what about one color gradation from lights to darks. yeah fun fun!

deb @ frugal little bungalow said...

It's beautiful ; I love the vibrant colors and how everything blends so softly from one to another

Vera said...

Both versions are pretty! Love your use of color!

Emily said...

Beautiful! I really like the colors!

Jayne said...

This one blew my socks off! It is so beautiful! The colors are amazing and all this from scraps! Unbelievable what you come up with!

canuckquilter said...

You do such lovely things with scraps! It's a beautiful design and I love it in these colors.

PaulaB quilts said...

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.

June D said...

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

Kate said...

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.

Kathy S. said...

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!

Karla Brown said...

It's beautiful - congratulations on the finish!

Barb Neiwert said...

Loving this, and SO excited to have you come to Sun Valley to teach this class in April. SUPER EXCITED!!!

Michele said...

I really like how that one came out.

Sandra Schwartzbauer said...

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?

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!

Ruth said...

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