Scrappy Saturday

Today was Dogwood Quilters Guild meeting in Siloam Spring Arkansas.
Even tho I live in Oklahoma I am very close to Siloam Springs which happens to have a very active guild. I haven't been to a meeting in months but this one I just happen to attend was having a class on making the Migrating Geese. Here is a link to a good tutorial of her plus Deb Tuckers. 
Over at Soscrappy I'm joining in on this month's color of brown with an accent of pink.
I had this so cute Eggs and Bacon with cubby Pigs fabric and figure this would be perfect for this month's baby quilt.


What do you think...... adorable isn't is 

Our teacher for the day was a member and shop owner of the local Quilt shop Sager Creek, Pam Goggans.


Excellent teacher and if you are in the area you need to drop by her shop. She has a quilt in the Jan,/Feb. issue of Fons and Porter's Love of Quilting. That is just her latest published pattern.


I took my Featherweight to use cause it's the perfect machine for classes and retreat. Just love sewing on that little mighty machine. I need to come up with a name for her..


I made great progress but not quite done. If I had of started earlier and didn't have to stop to come home, there is no reason this could've been completed in one day.

This one has a single color for the geese but it is so pretty scrappy.


Whether it's used as columns or a border.

  5. I've never seen migrating geese. Thanks for sharing. I'm not usually a border person but I think they would make a cute border.

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
