Geese Migrations Blog Hop Book Tour



Welcome to Day 3 of the Geese Migrations Blog Hop Book Tour!! 



We hope you are having fun following the first 
Geese Migrations blog tour.


Today, you will be able to visit Certified Quiltworx.com (Judy Niemeyer) Shops and see lots of great things and have the chance to win some great prizes too!









This is our quilt in the book.  Not only do you get the pattern for Always Chasing Rainbows, but you get a bonus table runner as well.  We are housed in an old movie theater, so many of our quilts have movie themes.  This particular quilt is dedicated to our all time favorite movie -- can you guess?  Keep in mind that any quiilt you make is YOURS, and you are free to let your imagination soar when choosing fabrics.








We drastically changed the look of the quilt simply by changing backgrounds, This version uses Michael Miller Krystal fabrics.





We have kits prepared in both a batik and a Timeless Treasures "Willow" version. You furnish the background of your choice.







Our "go-to" colors at JanniLou Creations are black, red, and white, so of course we imagined 
Always Chasing Rainbows in those colors.




What about using a favorite color scheme of your own?





Or a  sunset?






Or a monochromatic theme?





...or even in Quiltworx' Reclaimed West fabrics!



Judy Niemeyer has created a unique concept with her Certified Shop and Certified Instructor program.  She has carefully selected and trained shops and instructors throughout the U.S., Canada, and Australia to bring you her paper-piecing techniques, enabling you to create precise, perfect quilts.  Take advantage of the opportunities to learn from these well-trained representatives of the Quiltworx organization.
