Here’s my second entry for the Spring 2014 Blogger’s Quit Festival. Wandering Geese is a few years old but with the arrival of spring it is hanging over the banister again, reminding me how much I like it, so I’m sharing it again in the Original Design category.
The bundle of 25 fat quarters for this quilt followed me home even though I told them I had no plan for them. They sat patiently for several months while I fretted about cutting into the pretty colours. Eventually the coloured pencils and graph paper conspired to create a design. I took a deep breath, wielded the rotary cutter, and made a quilt I really really love – though it isn’t mine to keep forever as my daughter laid claim to it before it was even finished.
I had fun quilting a flying goose silhouette in the blank spaces . The design is from an old Quiltmaker magazine (sorry, I don’t remember which one) and is probably now available in one of their books of quilting motifs. I thought it added an appropriate touch of whimsy, considering all the flying geese blocks involved!
The pattern for Wandering Geese is available in my online shop. Click the "Pattern Shop" tab above to visit the shop.
Thanks for dropping by. I hope you’ll click over to the Festival blog to see all the other beautiful quilts quilting bloggers are sharing this week.
