Geese Migrations Blog Hop Book Tour and Giveaway Day 2



Welcome to Day 2 of the Geese Migrations Blog Hop Book Tour!!  Today you will be able to visit two Judy Niemeyer Certified Shops to see lots of fun things and enter to win some great prizes!  Today we'd like to share a little about the book and show you two fun projects from the book!

We'll remind you again at the end, but to enter for our prizes, please leave a comment on the blog and/or subscribe to our blog via email!  It's so easy to do!



Geese Migrations is the first book published by Judy Niemeyer.  It features 29 quilt designs by Quiltworx.com and affiliated Certified Shops.  Design, Create, and Inspire are the three words at the heart of Quiltworx.com, and have been since Judy Niemeyer founded the company in the late 1990s.  The foundation of this book is to provide multiple foundation units, such as geese, stars, etc. and then provide 29 patterns that use each of these designs uniquely, distinctly, and creatively.  The book also discusses how to take these units and design your own project! 

The book provides instructions for all 29 projects.  A separate paper package for each design is available for purchase to make each of the quilts in this book.  Just let us know which quilt you want to make and we can order the papers for you - it's as easy has that!  To order the book, click here!  



Today we'd like to feature two quilts from the book.  The first is Geese Over the Flathead.  This reminded me so much of Lake Tahoe in California!  I just loved the beauty of the lake, the majesty of the mountains, and the geese flying around the sun!  This project is 42" x 72", and we have the papers and the fabric kits (all batik) to go along with the project.  If you'd like to get this project, click here



Another project we really liked is Celestial Flights.  We have a sample in our shop made by Certified Instructor Kathi Carter, and it is gorgeous!  Kathi's version looks more like a two-color quilt - light blue and dark blue - however, if you look closely, you can see a variety of colors in the dark blue pieces.  Here is Kathi's version: 



Now for the best part - what are we giving away?  We are giving away two sets of papers - one set for Geese Over the Flathead and one set for Celestial Flights.  To enter our giveaway, leave a comment on this post and/or subscribe to our blog by email.  If you leave a comment and are not subscribed, please make sure we have your email address so we can contact you if you win! 






And of course you want to make sure and hop over to the other blogs on the list.  There are lots of prizes and lots of chances to win.  Each shop will have different ways to enter, so be sure to follow their rules.  Click on the links below on the assigned days and see what they all have to offer!
