Fall Orange – Geese Migration

Well, I snuck in one more tonight – Fall/Orange. Where orange isn’t one of my favorite colors, the fall palette are my favorite colors.

This was a simple block, but I still stress over color matching way too much, way way too much.

Well with this block done, that makes 19 completed 15 1/2″ Geese Migration blocks.

I have 2 piles of scraps set aside for 2 more, but I feel this is coming to the point of starting to assemble the whole top soon.

That’s gonna be a big job and lots of floor space needed to do this next step.

Blue Geese Migration

One more from the color challenge from 2015 – it feels good to get another one done, but oh so many more to do.

Doing these blocks clears my head so much from my daily grind of programming – even though it is math, and rows/columns – it’s not all numbers.

3’s a Wrap – Geese Migration

Well, finally got the 3rd Red one done.  Love love love how it turned out.

These 3 were so different and so much red – it was starting to feel like Christmas around here and I am not ready for that – we haven’t even had Trick or Treating yet – let’s not rush things!!!!

Looking Back – 2015

in: General

So as I was putting together the post about the second “Red” quilt to be represented in the Geese Migration Scrap quilt, I went back to the Monochromatic Quilt Challenge that I did in 2015.  There was only 1 red quilt done for that challenge, but I just had so much red that I kept going with a couple more – I guess.

As I looked over that challenge, I also realized that I have only done 2 Geese Migration block out of the 6 in that group.  Looks like it’s gonna be a busy winter project doing all these large blocks – but oh so fun!!!

I will say it is fun looking back at some of these projects and reliving the experience of seeing all this little pieces coming together to complete these tops. I wonder what it will be like to actually get them quilted and bound as well?

Red n White XO Geese Migration

This one took me a lot of time, a lot of little pieces with even smaller pieces attached.  20 – 2″ squares with 1″ triangles added.

But it looks really really cool.

One more red one to go, hopefully this weekend I will get the last Red & White one done so that I can move on to another color!!!

This block represents a quilt top from 2015 and another one of my favorites –Start to the end of the journeyThe ending to the journey

Red & Black Geese Migration

Well, I just couldn’t not finish one of these – it was bugging me way too much. AND This was the easier of the 3 that I have to do.

The original quilt top was part of a challenge from FB, flickr.com or some other group that I was in. It’s a nice little picnic quilt.

Seeing Red – Geese Migration

It’s sort of fitting that I am working on these  this weekend – just last week I noticed that the Canadian Geese have started to appear in fields and yards on their yearly migration thru the state.

So since I got the other one made today, I was a on a roll. I pulled out the list of quilts that I need to do Geese Migration blocks for and I saw 3 red ones. So I dove right in.

Had a bit of a break to go to the nearby garden nursery, but I was gonna try to get another block done. So I started cutting, and cutting and cutting. But then I got stuck on a decision – I am not good at decisions that there is not an obvious answer.  I could tell I was spinning my wheels. So I decided to get, what I thought was the hardest parts done, the Flying Geese.

I got those done and I will have to draw out what the next part is for these one.

When life gives you lemons, I make a Geese Migration block

I know, it sounds ominous but it’s not.

New job, new systems to learn/navigate, it all just rolls into one really busy summer for me.

I have not had much of any time to do much crafting, but I have had time to “start” cleaning out my craft room.  It was getting so cluttered (and if you were to look at it now it would look really cluttered if you didn’t see it before) so I dove into cleaning out stuff that I haven’t used in a long time. Craft stuff collected over the last 35 years or so.  IT feels good, but hard to admit I’m not gonna do some of the things I collected.  BUT someone else will – I have donated a lot of stuff so that feels really good!!!

Over the last week or so, when I could scrape a few minutes away from computers, I looked thru my gallery of quilt tops to look for inspiration for the Geese Migration quilt project that I started this year.  I went thru and found all the quilts that I want to make a quilt migration block for and started piling material for them.  This was the first one on my list to do – very much not my normal color pallet but it’s good to step outside your normal, and experience something different once in awhile. (well that’s what they say at least.

So this block comes from the set of tops that I made when I did a color challenge – one of my favorites Yellow quit tops.

Well that’s one off my list, 12 more to go.

Deck Checkers

in: Crafting

Very little time this month to do anything “fun” – it’s been all work and no play kinda day.

But we were able to sneak away to the cabin for a weekend and I got to work on a project that I have been waiting to do.

I made the pieces quite awhile ago ( Chips are stacked – July 2018 ) and was waiting for the right time to do the board.

It is 48″ square, the check chips are 5.5 inches.  It couldn’t have worked out any better – the boards were 6″ including the space between. We had a couple of challenges with the paint – we had planned to use the paint that was there, but all the cans were just dried paint/stain. So we had to punt a little bit, but I think it’s turning out awesome – if I do say so myself.

Beachy Geese Migration

Well now that the Beachy Waves top is done, I can post the Geese Migration block that goes with it.

I should have waited to do this one until the top was done because I used some fabric pieces that I could have really used when I added that extra row to the quilt. But it all worked out just fine.
