Gaggle of Geese

flying geese quiltAnother quilt I finished several months ago. It was one of the first quilts I had quilted on a longarm. I still have a ways to go with the longarm but I will get there. This is a paper pieced pattern offered for sale by Better off thread, http://betteroffthread.com/2015/01/02/gaggle-of-geese-pattern/. The 1 seam flying geese border was added by me so if you do purchase the pattern please know the  directions for the border will not be included.

The pattern was great, it was clear and well written. One could get lost in the instructions for many quilt patterns, that was not the case Gaggle of Geese.  If you like paper piecing and flying geese  this would be a great addition to your pattern collection or you could expand on this. My collection consists of  patterns by many quilt designers. There are patterns that I may like one aspect of the quilt but not so much the rest. No one said you have to make the quilt as instructed by the designer although that would be their preference. If you can make the blocks fit from a dozen different quilt patterns and are happy with the outcome, that’s all that matters.  After all, you will be the one the quilt represents every time the receiver looks at the quilt.

Perhaps you are experienced in traditional piecing and would like to give paper piecing a try? This pattern would be a good fit.  A very confident patient beginner could also pull it off but keep in mind there is curved piecing in this quilt.
