Flying Geese quilts have always been among my favorites.  After making a couple quilts using the usual vertical FG design, in 1989 I tried one on the diagonal.
Flight I
1989, Machine pieced, hand quilted, 38"x 38"

And, then another for a quick wedding gift in 2012.
Flight II
2012, Machine pieced, machine quilted, 28" x 28"

My first try at machine quilting -- just simple in the ditch with my walking foot.  Not very happy with my results!  I haven't tried much machine quilting since then; but I'm working on something right now.

Every quilt is a learning experience!

Oh, I have to remember this. Geese on the diagonal makes so much sense when you think about how they fly. I really like how you used the striped fabrics in the designs.

What a great design! These quilts have so much movement.

Stitch in the ditch is actually the hardest thing to do with a machine! You tackled a tough task for your first time. I hope your next foray into machine quilting is more fun for you.

Oooh... those diagonal flying geese are great! It would work so well in modern solids. Thanks for linking up with Throwback Thursday @ A Quarter Inch from the Edge!
