Falling leaves, harvest moons and geese flying south in the fall are the inspiration for this rich quilt. Try it in blues and frosty whites to suggest a late fall frost, or in brighter colours to herald the return of geese and green leaves in the spring.

Just two simple blocks nestle together to create a sparkling star quilt.  The prairie points overlaid in the border add a fun dimensional element and a little extra twinkle.  They are really very easy to make.

A paper template for the triangles is included, or you can use a Creative Grids 60 degree triangle ruler.

This bright breezy flying geese quilt comes together surprisingly quickly. It is stunning in rainbow colours as shown here but would be equally effective in more subdued palettes.
The 1/4 yard cuts of fabric allow quick and easy strip piecing of the piano key border and greatly reduce the number of individual patches that need to be cut. However, if you prefer to use smaller scraps the pattern also lists the required number and sizes of patches required to piece the quilt without strip-piecing.

The pattern includes over 30 crisp diagrams to help you visualize the steps and keep track of the pieced sections. The quilt measures 57" x 71".

The quilt measures 58" x 67".

  1. Yay, thankyou Perfect project for my half term at school in a few weeks xxx

  2. I love the look of the String of Diamonds Placemats. But I downloaded the pattern and followed the directions and everything was wrong. I finally figured it was the diamond/square size of 3-7/8 that was wrong, creating the need to increase all the other parts. That made the placemats too large. What is the correct size of that diamond?

    1. You are correct. The square A should be 3-3/8". I apologize for the error. I have corrected the pattern and the updated version can be downloaded free by following the link listed above. Thank you for your feedback.

    2. Thank you so much. I was trying to figure out the square size but you're much better at it than I. I love the pattern so much I want to make another one.

  3. LOVE Scattered Leaves! I made it for my brother & our 91 year old Aunt hand quilted it! It fits him perfectly! Would love to post a pic if you'd point me in the right direction to do so. Thank you again for this great pattern! <3

    1. Thank you! I'd love to see a picture. You can post a picture as a project on Craftsy, or you can email me the picture and I can share it in a blog post.

  4. I love your paper pieced snowflakes- I have only made one but I love it!

  5. Love the Tiny Ornaments, can't wait to try them. Thank you!

  6. I would really like the Geese Across the Table pattern. When I sign into PayPal, it says they can't process right now. When I go directly into PayPal from my computer, I have no problem. Is there a problem with your site?

    1. Thanks for your interest in my pattern. I'm sorry you are having difficulties. I could not reply directly, as your comment came through as "no-reply". I have just completed a trial purchase to see if Payhip and Paypal are working and I did not get any error messages. Please try again later. If the problem persists, please email me directly at joanne@canuckquilter.com.

  7. Lovely, creative patterns. I'll be back as soon as I get a few 'works in progress done'

    1. Thank you! I'm very familiar with the "getting works in progress done" constraint :)
