Challenge 5 - Flying Geese

geeseWe haven't used a traditional block for inspiration yet in Season 2, so I think it's time.

1.  Your inspiration for Challenge 5 is Flying Geese.  I'm sure you've all seen the traditional flying geese.  Your challenge is to let them inspire you to do something unexpected.

2.  For an extra twist this week, you are required to use a complimentary (opposites on the color wheel) color scheme.

3.  Please remember that these projects need to be created during the week of the challenge.

4.  POST your entries with a description of your creative process, including where you are (ie, I create in Madison, WI) and the size of your project by Sunday, March 13th, 2011, at noon, CDT, to this flickr group – Project QUILTING with KimsCraftyApple: OR email a picture/description of your completed project to with PROJECT QUILTING in the subject line.

5. If this is the first Project Quilting challenge you've participated in, please email Kim at with PROJECT QUILTING in the subject line so that Kim can send you feedback from the judges and keep you updated on the behind the scenes going-ons.

Remember, these challenges are intended to help you ‘Think Outside the Square’.  Be creative.  Take a risk. Do something no one else will think of doing.


  1. I like the idea of doing a traditional block, but doing it in a "Nontraditional" way. I searched the internet for ideas, dreamed all night about possibilities, and will have to do some thinking today while I am quilting/working. So many ideas floating around in my head! Thanks for the Etsy Treasury - that helps with ideas. Love the Flying Geese Dye Candy Jewelry. And Google has so many flying geese images too!

  2. LOVE that we are going traditional this week!

  3. Question...are to only use complimentary colors or can we add a few touches of others, too?

  4. The idea of the challenge is always to inspire creativity, not to limit it. Take the challenge and interpret it in your own way, including adding other colors. Be sure to tell us about your choices!

  5. just created a treasury on etsy inspired by this challenge

    check it out!

  6. Love the treasury Kristen!

    Hmm... Things could be going better. I know why I don't normally make geese! I wish I'd had more time this week.
