Purple Paradise – Geese Migration

Now this is how they all should go – a little over an hour to get this one put together.

Of course, it helped the 4 of the flying geese were already done and one was 2/3 of the way done!!!  But it counts and another in the box.  This was one of my favorite panels to do and one of my first panels. I don’t usually do them, but it worked so well with this layer cake that I had, I just couldn’t resist.

Geometry Lesson #2 – Triangles – Geese Migration

So the second little bag inside of this “purple” box that I pulled out today (not even in the project box stack) was all triangles.

My first thought was that this is going to be so easy!!! Never – Never – Never say that, ever when working on a project like this.

So here is what we learned today:

  • Never say this is a piece of cake – cuz then there is geometry to deal with
  • Looking a gift horse in the mouth – is never good.  Yes, I had a bunch of large triangles – both accent colors and base (wings). However, every single thing that was pieced together on this block was sewn on the bias — EVERYTHING!!!  not on purpose, but because they were all triangles.
  • Always look back at the quilt that this bag was from, maybe you can find some inspiration on piecing this together to reference the main project like I have done in a couple of these blocks already.

All in all – it did turn out nice. It was a bit tedious because of all the stretching, but it did turn out kinda cool.

The original quilt is here – hearts.

Geometry Lesson #1 – Geese Migration

So today was Geometry Lesson day – #1 Round disc into flying geese and squares.

The discs were 9 1/2 inches across – so I really had to do some tricky cutting to get the center of the geese and the 3 1/2 square for the side.  But all in all I love how it turned out. This little quilt is one of the first completely finished ones that I have – because of the pattern. It is circles attached as squares then folded over and sewn down. It’s a small little lap quilt but just right some times. I have it laying one the back of my couch so when the hubby and dogs have all the other lap blankets tied up, I can grab this one.

Here is the original little quilt that this one came from:

Beachy Geese Migration

Well I am ahead of the game with this one so I am going to only show the Flying Geese part of this one. The quilt that goes with it is the project for “this week”. I say “this week” because this is a doozie of a project.  I have sorted, resorted and then rearranged so that I could sort again. This project is going to take a lot of concentration and patience to get done – correctly. Probably why it’s still in the box!

I am almost second guessing myself on the choice to make these Geese Migration blocks out of the scraps from other projects. It takes twice as long because of having to weed thru the pile of pieces to find ones big enough and then hope the colors can work together.

April Round-Up

So April was a very productive month:

  • 4 Project boxes completed / emptied
  • 1 New Project started (so -1 on the completed/emptied project boxes)
  • 8 – 15″ blocks done for the new project
  • Lots of fabric being made available (coming out of project boxes as they get done)

That is awesome, just awesome progress. If I can keep up this pace, I may have all the project boxes, that have quilt tops in them, emptied by the end of June. When I was sorting the project boxes I discovered that some of them were “fabric collections” and not really projects.  That’s where some of the Geese Migration blocks came out of, which is a win-win in my books.

Very Bright Geese Migration

Well April is going out in flashy colors – I fought with my machine and had to do a deep clean on it to get this one done today. But it got done. It’s colors are way outside my normal colors but I love it anyway.

Next Project Box – Very bright & Flashy

I peaked at the next box in the stack – this one is really outside my wheel house.

Color, pattern and no straight lines in sight.  This one will probably take me a week to finish.

Lake View Geese Migration

Well this one took me all day – I went thru 2 other scrap bags but they didn’t have enough to do one of these, but this one had enough – I had to piece some things together and creatively cutting some things. But I love it any way.  This is left over pieces from Lake View – panel quilt.

Stars at Bear Cabin Geese Migration

So after finishing the one from this weekend’s project – it dawned on me, that after ever kit that I finish I put all the left overs in a baggie just in case I need them for something else. I don’t put them in the general scrap box, I keep them all separate. So what a great opportunity to include them in this project of projects.

I did realize that it actually takes more time going thru these scrap bags searching for pieces that will word for 5 large geese and 15 squares. This was is my color base – my favorite deep warm golds, greens, and burgundies. This is from the Bear Claw quilt

Filtered Stars Geese Migration

Now this is a Flying Geese to be proud of.

I couldn’t wait to do this one, just because of yesterday’s project. So unjust – yet still love that pattern & fabric.
