Snow Goose

Roberta's Snow Goose quilt: QuiltBee
Last time I showed you Roberta's Due South which reminded me of all of the Canada Geese that will be flying south soon for the winter. Well, today we're stepping into the next season with her beautiful Snow Goose.

To say that I became a little weak kneed when I saw this one would be an understatement. I had seen a block back in the spring but now the entire top is finished and it is gorgeous! Scrappy, lots of flying geese, tiny nine patches - I could go on. Right in my wheelhouse.

The reds and greens are very reminiscent of the Fig Tree colours in Fly Away Home, which I totally gravitate to, and there's a gorgeous teenie tiny paisley tucked away in that sashing. The whole thing just makes me think that I need one too!

Not surprisingly, the fabric line she used is called "Snowfall" and its by Minick & Simpson (gotta love anything by those sisters!!). There are some wovens in it too, which just really make the quilt.

Roberta's Snow Goose quilt: QuiltBeeI don't have a pic of it but the binding will be a beautiful red plaid which will be so nice cut on the bias. And you know how I love my bias check bindings. Sigh.

Sharing this beauty with everyone at Finished or Not Friday...M

A beautiful interpretation of Goose in the Pond. I love the fabric choices.

Such a nice grouping of fabrics in this quilt and a classic pattern. Had to laugh reading about that Long Arm quilter - it is like someone who builds houses; their place is often the last one to be completed as they are so busy working on other people’s projects. I too am a huge fan of bindings cut on the bias when working with checks especially. We always have flocks of geese landing on our pond and migrating over the house - both spring and fall...their sounds are so melancholy to me as they head south...

I love the colour combination. This looks like it would be a fun quilt to make. I might have to consider it.
