All Kinds of Things Happening!

This week, Cindy over at Quilting is More Fun Than Housework is featuring her Geese Migration pattern and inviting others to link up who have either made one or have one in progress.  Mine is definitely a WIP!  I took the class from Cindy last summer and haven't made much progress since but decided to make another block for my collection.  I am up to four.
I have had several people suggest I start making these blocks for the RSC (Rainbow Scrap Challenge).   I am definitely considering that.  But first I have to get a special project done before I can take on anything new.  

This week I also completed some blocks for my Bee.  As a group we decided it was difficult to get our blocks done during the Christmas season so there are a few months that we double up on.  This month is one of them.   Our queens for this month were Paige Alexander of Quited Blooms and Jennifer Fulton of Inquiring Quilter.  Here are Paige's requested blocks:

And here are Jennifer's requested shamrock blocks:


Cheryl Brickey of Meadowmist Designs and Paige Alexander of Quilted Blooms
 have recently written and published a new quilt book called 

Cheryl and Paige invited a bunch of quilters to participate in a blog hop to introduce their exciting new publication.  Each quilter in the hop will be making a project using one of the designs in the book.   I feel extremely honored to be asked to participate!  So this project is the secret sewing I've been working on.  The blog hop begins March 12 and my day is March 22.  I believe there will be giveaways and prizes as well as some fun eye candy.  You can purchase this fun book at Cheryl's Etsy shop or Paige's Etsy shop or on Amazon.  You'll want to be sure to check out all the fabulous versions of these plus quilts over the next two weeks.

Lovely bright rich colours in your geese migration Janice. The shamrock block turned out great and I love the bold colours you use in the blocks for Paige which is great contrast to the the feature fabrics. Looking forward to seeing your finished quilt on the hop.

Very fun Bee blocks! I'm looking forward to seeing the different interpretations of Cheryl's patterns during the blog hop. Good luck with your secret sewing.

Preeti said...

Janice, one things abundantly clear. You have the most beautiful fabrics in your stash. I love the colors on your geese migration block. I am looking forward to the secret being revealed :-)

Janice Holton said...

My secret is that many are not my own fabrics! I am an avid scrap hunter and I have entered every single scrap giveaway that I come across. Other people's scraps are way more interesting that my own. I am addicted to them! 😁

Anja @ Anja Quilts said...

Those geese blocks are awesome. Such vibrant colours. I have to finish my secret project as well.

Bonnie said...

Looking forward to seeing all your plus quilts in the new book.

Lovely Geese Migration blocks!! I hope you will come back to the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. We're there tackling our scraps one color at a time!

Louise said...

I so looking forward to seeing your Plus quilt all finished, Janice! Very exciting :)

Oh, I look forward to seeing your secret sewing project on the 22nd, Janice! Your rainbow flying geese block is so gorgeous and is really well done!

I hardly ever see scrap give always! I remember those flying geese blocks, and I remember how much I liked them. It’s so difficult to remember everything I want to try! You’re so lucky to be part of Cheryl and Paige’s Hop. I can’t wait for your day!

Barb Neiwert said...

Loving your Geese Migration blocks. I will post mine today and work on some more next week. Looking forward to your Blog Hop Day!

I love those Geese Migration blocks. That's a great suggestion... to make rainbow blocks. Nice and scrappy! And I bet your blog hop quilt is fabulous! I'll be sure to check back.
