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.

I love it still; what more can I say? Glad to see it again. ---"Love"ReplyDelete
So pretty! I hope you still retain the visiting rights to the quilt when your daughter leaves the nest.... =)ReplyDelete
This is really wonderful! i like the way the geese are different sizes and it's fun rainbow brightness!ReplyDelete
This is SUCH a cool original design, and such happy fabric! I love it, and I adore the quilted goose.ReplyDelete
Be forewarned: not only will you "lose" this quilt when your daughter leaves home, but if she's anything like my youngest, several of your other quilts will "visit" her...some may return (you may have to lay claim to them!) but others will sneak off in their place to visit... It's all good, as they will know they are well-loved in both homes!
so bright and beautiful! I love flying geese :-)ReplyDelete
Wow! Love this! SO colorful and the design is awesome! Love the weaving of the geese. I'm not surprised your daughter laid claim to it!ReplyDelete
This quilt has so much punch! I love it as much now as I did when you first posted it. The quilted geese are a terrific choice for their flying *cousins*.ReplyDelete
