Geese Gone Wild, May 2019

Page Content: 

This quilt is a one-block quilt that offers a fresh new way to think about flying geese. Create the traditional block in a new way while exploring negative space and a modern, alternate grid. The geese can be paper-pieced (templates are provided), or you can piece them traditionally.
