Flock of Geese Quilt Progress

You know me, always trying to figure out how to add a little more applique into my life! These little birdies were a joy to stitch, only causing me a few fits around the deep crease at the bottom of the wing.
Applique blocks for Flock of Geese quilt
The fabric is a bit different than my usual, but it was something I had bought a couple years ago for setting triangles in a previous quilt and then never used. I won't deny that sometimes these particular fabrics end up being quite a challenge to gracefully incorporate into another quilt later on down the road! I don't like to think of them as 'oops' fabric though because I never would have bought the print in the first place if something about it hadn't spoke to me.
Looking at some progress....
So... the plan is to put these appliqued blocks with my Flock of Geese blocks using a wide sashing and make a really incredible quilt.*wink  Isn't that what we all strive for in our quilting every single day? lol

  1. I love your bird blocks! I can't wait to see them put together with the geese blocks! I know it will be fabulous! I have some fabrics that might be considered 'oopes' but I have decided that the 'right' project just hasn't come along yet.

  7. Hi,
    You probably already know, but anyway, there is a pattern available for the wonderful applique quilt pictured on your May 22 blogpost. It's a favorite of mine, too. Here's the link: http://www.etsy.com/listing/103092082/calico-paradise-applique-quilt-pattern?ref=shop_home_active
    You sure have an inspiring blog!

    1. Thank you! I did know about the wonderful pattern put together by Dawn--almost bought it a time or two myself, but decided I wanted to try and 'interpret' the pattern in my own way.:)

  12. The blocks look superb, love the colors, and I've never met a witty quilt name that I didn't like. Pieced geese + appliqued birds -- what's not to love? Fun idea ! Looking forward to watching your progress.

  17. I like the blue fabric you used for the birds. Goes well with the greens you have used for the triangles. I have "oops" fabrics that I hold onto for ages and ages. Sometimes it is fabric someone has given me that just never seems to go with other fabrics in stash.
