Oh Scrap! : Geese Migration

One of the great things about publishing patterns, is you get to see all the beautiful quilts made using your designs.  One of my designs is Geese Migration.

Remember this quilt?

Teaching quilters how to use scraps to colorwash these blocks and sew up this quilt is one of the workshops I offer.  Some previous students and other bloggers have been working on these blocks and it was suggested I host a link-up to inspire folks to finish more blocks.

Maybe even inspire folks to start their own quilt!

It is always fun to see how different each block look based on the scraps that are used.  It is one of my favorite classes to teach!

 if you want some fun inspiration!

You can also find a pattern sheet here.  The blocks would also make a great Rainbow Scrap Challenge project.

Here is a photo of my original Geese Migration quilt.  Seeing this makes me want to make one more!

So next Sunday, in addition to our usual Oh Scrap, I would love to see lots of people link up their Geese Migration blocks or quilts.  Feel free to share some new blocks or link up an older post showing off what you have made with this pattern.

I can't wait to see them!


It is now your turn to share what you are making with scraps.  Here are the details for linking up:

  • This linky party is for any scrappy project - It can be in-process or a finished piece.
  • You can link up your blog post (not your homepage please) or Instagram photo from the past week that features your use of scraps.
  • If you are linking to a blog post, I ask that you link back to my blog somewhere in your post. So if you are writing about scraps, just get into the habit of including a link as there will be a linky party available every week!
  • If you are using Instagram, please use the hashtag #ohscrap.
  • This is a party so remember to socialize and comment on the posts of others.
  • Following my blog is not necessary but it sure would be great if you do!

  1. Still my favorite! I was all set to take mine to the LAQ a couple of weeks ago until I couldn't find the back I had prepared for it. It will definitely be the next one I take.

  2. It is a great block and a gorgeous quilt. I will consider to start another Rainbow quilt this year...but not sure this will fit my full basket.

  3. I forgot how much I love this block and quilt! It's definitely on my to-do list. Maybe I should make it an RSC project.

  4. That has always been a favorite of mine, and it's on my list! Thanks for sharing the pattern sheet!

  5. I haven't seen your Geese Migration before. It's great! I love the colorwash. When I first saw it, I thought it was your current RSC. Looks like the same colors.

  6. Another FG pattern to add to my queue!! It’s gorgeous.

  7. I do have this pattern...but I haven't made it...yet! I am so glad you shared it again because its a beautiful quilt and great pattern. I can't wait to see next weeks Oh Scrap!!!

  8. I've loved this quilt since the first time I saw it in Quilty! Thanks for reminding me to get out my scraps (of which I have a lot) and make this quilt!

  9. Where can I purchase the pattern? I have a huge box of fabric samples I got at Good Will and this would be a great block to use them for.

  10. Love this pattern. I've seen it popping up in various blogs. Didn't realise it was your design. Now following your Pinterest link, great pictures for more inspiration!

  11. Beautiful. Thank you for sharing the pattern. It is now on "my must do one day list".

  12. That is a beautiful quilt. You're right, it's perfect for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

  13. I must have missed this one. I am glad you shared it again. You have such a good eye for using scraps. I hope to make this one.

  14. Those geese migration blocks look spectacular! I'll go check out your pinterest board soon.

  15. I love those geese migration blocks! Scrappy but monochromatic makes for such beautiful quilts.

  16. Now I almost wish you hadn't posted your beautiful Geese Migration - I fell in love with your pattern when I spotted it in a magazine. You might remember I made a start with Rainbow Scrap Challenge but ran out of steam!! I think I do have to make this one, I'll add it to my list!!

  17. Oh. My. Word. I *love* your geese migration quilt and the way you have arranged the colors. It's so pretty!

  18. Totally love that Geese Migration quilt of yours Cynthia. Thanks so much for the pattern sheet.
