FLYING GEESE

 I was in the mood to quilt something traditional ----
my all-time favorite strippy-style quilt ---- Flying Geese.  It seemed appropriate during this Autumn season.
Machine Pieced, Machine Quilted, 24" x 24"
Fabrics:  "Graditude" by Jo Morton, Moda
"Silver Linings" by Laundry Basket Quilts, Moda
Sashing, borders, backing, and binding from my scraps/stash.


This is not my first go-around with the geese, as I've made several variations of them over the years.  This was the very first one in 1983:
 Machine pieced, hand quilted, 82" x 103"

Still at the top of my list of favorite traditional strippy-style quilts!

Beautiful! Gotta love a strippy Flying Geese quilt. It always works, no matter if the fabrics are traditional, modern, batik, or whatever.

Your Flying Geese quilts are so lovely! Your Flying Geese blocks are perfect! Many times I lose my upper point, but I'm getting better. What's your secret? :) I love learning from more experienced quilters! Thank you for sharing!

So beautiful. I'm beginning to 'find my voice' in traditional quilt-style. Geese are one of my favorite units.
