Bloggers Quilt Festival: Seasonal Migration

Amy Ellis is once again hosting Bloggers Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side. Check out all the quilty eye candy over there!

For my second entry I'm featuring Seasonal Migration. 

Formerly referred to as KBFG (Kaffe & Batik Flying Geese), this quilt has been in the making for about two and a half years, but came back from the quilter in late July. I was able to get it finished in time for my guild's show which will start September 30.

Lots of flying geese: 

I worked on it at camp: 


I finished the flimsy more than a year ago, but then it had to wait until its turn came up on my quilter friend Sandy's waiting list. She's very good and very popular.

Sandy quilted it lightly per my request, using bamboo batting, so it would remain soft and drapey.

46 different fabrics  were used in the top, plus the backing, plus the binding.

The backing is perfect for me: Names of colors in huge script. Before I retired, I worked as a color specialist in apparel, textiles and footwear, and one of my responsibilities was naming colors. 


I'm keeping this quilt for myself.
