Work In Progress Wednesday ~ Flying Geese

Yesterday, I came across some flying geese I had pieced while looking for something else. I wanted a quick project, so I decided to stop looking and start piecing!

You might remember another quilt I made from more of these Flying Geese units last summer.

I am completely out of my favorite white fabric that I used for piecing these, so I had to get creative as to how I used them. First I tried adding these solids. Its okay.

Then I decided maybe more gray, but I didn’t have any more of the gray on the left so I tried the polka dot.

Nope. Then I found a couple  prints.

I really like the one on the left. I didn’t have enough of either  and didn’t care for these two together, so I kept looking.

This works for me! The one on the left is an older Denyse Schmidt print and the one on the right is a Lotta Jansdotter print that Daughter #2 gifted  to me.

I may trim a bit of the left hand side. I will decide after I quilt it.

  1. The points on your geese look perfect! I’ll be cheeky and ask: Would you share a photo sometime of how you pin the blocks together to keep the points? I like seeing your process of finding fabrics too, will wait with interest to see how it all comes together ☺
