WIP Wednesday: Geese




Just a quick one to show you what I’m doing (instead of any of my goals!).  I put together a scrappy Flying Geese quilt, and now I’m marking geese in the solid areas to quilt.  So far, so good.


While I pieced this and my last two projects, I’ve been working on this (my first) leaders and enders project, and am starting to see some progress.  I like doing it, and it eliminates lots of threads, but I don’t promise I’ll always be organized enough to do it.  I recently did some cleaning in the studio, which makes it possible to locate the basket when I get ready to piece.  (Someday this will be a “Frilly” quilt like Pam made.

Hope all of you are making progress!  I’m linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.

  1. Love your quilting idea 🙂 Leaders and Enders sounds like a great idea too – I might give it a go for a scrappy quilt of some sort – thanks for the reminder!

  2. The flying geese look great. Love the variety of fabrics you have used. I have always wanted to do a leaders and enders project but have never quite been able to decide on a design. Yours looks like it is going to be great!

  3. I have a question. Why do you have your flying geese numbered? And that Frilly quilt is freaking awesome! I bought the book so I can make it 😀

    • Kati, I always number my blocks after I figure out my final arrangement on the wall. I have a tendency to mix them up or turn them if I don’t. Crayola washable markers. I didn’t know the
      Frilly quilt was in a book- I just copied from Pam’s photos! Maybe mine will be a little different!

  4. I love geese. What a lovely quilt this is going to be!!! Looking forward to seeing it finished…

  5. Just for the record, I love flying geese. 🙂
