Introducing the Migration Block

I really am loving the monthly challenges over at Raccoon Creek Quilts. For November, we were to create an original 12.5" block. I really enjoyed the design process and rejected many designs.


November Challenge Block: Migration

The one I decided on is a variation on the Pineapple block. I am calling it Migration because with the colors I used, it reminds me of the Canadian geese that briefly stop over here before flying south. I made up my test block in scraps and want to make the final design in solids. Lucky for all of you, the challenge for December is to create a tutorial for the block we created. So look for that sometime this month!

I am also linking up with Lynne at Lily's Quilts for both Fresh Sewing Day and Small Blog Meet. If you are visiting from her blog, please feel free to peek around a bit and say hello!
