Geese on the Move
a/k/a Geese Migration

Cynthia Brunz/Quilting is More Fun than Housework, designer of the pattern Geese Migration, has put out a call for those who have made her quilt to post today.  So here's mine.

Geese on the Move (a/k/a Geese Migration)
Like so many others who have made this quilt, I saw it in a magazine and immediately knew I needed to make it.  I tried to imitate the gradation of color I thought I saw in Cynthia's quilt.  Unfortunately, I was working with a somewhat limited palette of fabrics and the subtle gradations don't show in this photograph.  It is next to go to my LAQ for quilting.

The details:
Design by Cynthia Brunz (Quilting is More Fun Than Housework).

Fabric collection begun 2014, mostly Daiwabo supplemented by taupe-like prints from stash.
Blocks begun November 24, 2015.
Blocks Finished November 2016.
Layout and construction begun January 2017.
Final top assembly February 22, 2017.
To be quilted SOON!


  1. Love it!!! I dropped the ball with mine a couple of years ago, but back onto them now. I was wondering how many to make and see you have a good size quilt there, I'd better get busy!

  2. It's gorgeous, Libby!! Looking forward to seeing it quilted.

  3. It is so great to see this one again. I love the subtle colors in it. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap! It really is beautiful.

  4. That's just beautiful, Libby! I can see your gradations of color, and it looks like that is challenging to accomplush. Geese Migration is definitely on my list to make!

  5. I'm having fun looking at everybody's Geese Migration quilts. You're is quite unique with this muted color pallet! Very pretty! I just took the class from Cindy last summer and only have four blocks so far. It's a fun block to make in between other projects! And someday I'll have a whole quilt. :)

  6. It's a beauty, Libby. The gradations are wonderful.

  7. That is a wonderful quilt. Congratulations on a completed top. I seem to make quilts over several years myself. I have some blocks that are a good 30 years old. Some day they will be put to use!

  8. Nice flashback! I need to make one!
