Geese Trails

A while back I posted photos and templates for the Trail of Geese block I designed for Monica's quilt in the Traveling Quilts round robin.


I hadn't noticed anybody using the template all these months. In fact I wondered from time to time if there was an error in the template or something. Then I saw two great examples within a couple hours and it made my day.

The first is this lyrical quilt top by Catherine Mosely. The setting is graceful, and the movement is both peaceful and compelling.

The second comes from the other side of the world from Kelly (blogging at jeli quilts and flickring at chunky09). The rainbow geese look so cool in the grey background. And the quilting really sings.

  2. They are great - I have started making a quilt using your pattern with Echo by Lotta Jansdotter and moda cross weave. I'm really pleased with how it looks so far.

  5. I did my first paper piecing last week and loved it - I'm not sure if I'm up to this yet but I would love to give it a try :-) These are gorgeous examples.
