26 Oct Introducing Rebel Flock…
Because my geese are flying north in the Fall!
This was such a fun quilt to put together! You know how I love HSTs. The quilt measures just under 46″ x 58″ and is made with 5 yellow fat quarters, 3 purple fat quarters and 2 yards of Kona Coal. How simple is that.
I got the perfect yellow and purple fabrics from my friend Brenda of Pink Castle Fabrics. Brenda has a great stock of the best modern and basic fabrics and there was no way I could resist this group. Even better, Brenda is sponsoring a giveaway of the same bundle of purples and yellows that I used. All you have to do to enter is click over to Pink Castle Fabrics and leave a comment telling me which bundle or fabric from Pink Castle Fabrics you like best. I’ll draw a winner at the end of the day (US EDT) on Friday, October 28.
If you can’t wait that long or you aren’t the lucky winner, Pink Castle Fabrics will be featuring an Esch House Quilts blog bundle in the shop.
For a limited time, you can also get the pattern for free under my “Free Projects” tab above.
I’m going to enter Rebel Flock in Rachel at Stitched in Color‘s October Celebrate Color contest. It is so much fun to look at the other entries and be inspired. Last month I entered something purple and yellow too! The contest continues in November – I think I’d better come up with a different color palette for next month!
PS Be sure I can reach you in case you win!

I don't know why I didn't comment before, but I want to let you know that I'm totally feeling your geese!

Thanks for the pattern – lovely. I like the Hometown fat quarter bundle and would love a chance to win these awesome purple and yellow fabrics to make a quilt like yours! Thanks for that chance. alternate email mlwright29(at)hotmail(dot)com

Debbie you seem to be unique. I know so many quilters grumbling about sewing a HST – and you love them (funny). I love the quilting you have done, looks great!
JennyPosted at 03:46h, 29 October
Love this quilt! Great purple and yellow bundle, too.
VickiTPosted at 03:00h, 29 October
what an awesome looking quilt. I just saw it over at Quilt Inspiration and had to come check it out.
I really love the Tis Almost the Season – Christmas Holiday Red Green White bundle they've got. That would be a great bunch of fabrics.
I also really like the bundle for you since my favorite color is purple. That bundle for your choice would have been my first choice if they didn't have that holiday bundle. What's funny is that my high school colors were purple and gold. lol

Oops, just noticed the bit about Pink Castle Fabrics so we went to check it out. The purples and yellows bundle is beautiful and I also love the Morning News – can't have enough grays!

We just stopped by to see what's up since last week and… WOW. How wonderful !! A gold medal to you for your color choices – the geese seem to be flying right off the quilt. We'd love to link our readers over to this blog post if it is OK with you… everyone should see this one.

I really love the yellow and purples that you used. The yellows in that bundle go so well together and I feel like that can be hard to accomplish.

What a gorgeous quilt! I peeked over at Pink Castle and I love the mosaics that Brenda put together for the Made by Rae Rainbow Dress bundles…she should totally offer an FQ bundle with the Ta-Dots and the Metro Living Ringtoss fabrics together!
LindaPosted at 22:23h, 26 October
I love bundles and I love your new quilt and I love your yellow and purple bundle best!
JennyPosted at 20:35h, 26 October

Again Debby, this is awesome. I love your color selection and admire your dedication to the use of your gifts and talents. Thanks for sharing them with us!
MonikaPosted at 10:12h, 26 October
I love your quilt! To combine yellow and purple – it´s hot!!
I love those3 circles by Made by Rae … or the Sunny Day package the best! But I could find a lot, lot more 🙂

i love your flying geese, great colours!
EthnePosted at 07:13h, 26 October
This is an amazing quilt – I love it
The simple difference in using the HST in one section makes such a fantastic design – I can visualise one with a horizontal or vertical strip of geese like this – so many possibilities – well done
JuliePosted at 02:43h, 26 October
Sunny Days but the Made by Ray bundles are adorable!
BaileyGirl5Posted at 01:32h, 26 October
I'm really digging polka dots lately so I'd go with the Made by Rae Rainbow Dress.
Love your quilt! Those colors make me happy 🙂
Vicki FreemanPosted at 01:02h, 26 October
What a fantastic pattern (and equally great name for it!) I love the Zag Stripes at Pink Castle!
What Comes Next?Posted at 01:00h, 26 October
oooo, tough choice! I really like both the |Sunny Days Aqua and Citron bundle and the Morning news bundle of greys. That Made By Rae bunch is pretty sweet, too!
DebPosted at 00:40h, 26 October
I like anything that looks woven – the Moda CrossWeave in Natural, but there are Alexander Henry and Kaffe Fassett versions of that in her store, also.
AlliPosted at 00:33h, 26 October
I like the Made by Rae dress bundles — those are such happy colors! 🙂
ChayPosted at 00:31h, 26 October
It's a toss up: the black/grey bundle or the Hideaway Cuckoo Clocks. Bundles are great in neutral colors, but one perfect 1/2 yard of a gorgeous colorway is irresitible. Thanks for the giveaway. Your HST quilt is great!
