While Flock of Geese came out looking nothing like a real flying geese block, it was not for lack of trying!
My first attempt looked much more like the block, but the triangles ended up all different shapes and sizes (where did I put that original photo?)
I just wasn't satisfied with this first attempt. First off, it required loads of traveling around each triangle and the end result really didn't look that good.
I think these types of triangles will work better when marked on a quilt top, so maybe this is a good inspiration for a stencil design. Watson I think you're on to something!
Filler Design Type - Edge to edge. This design will work great in big areas where you have enough space to lay your grid, but definitely not in small, complicated areas.
Difficulty Level - Beginner. Once you quilt the grid lines, filling in the geese shapes is actually pretty easy.
Directional Texture - No Direction. This is a flat design that works well to flatten your quilt and create background areas.
Suggestions for Use - Of course I can't resist telling you to go quilt Flock of Geese over your flying geese!
Another good place for this design would be over the lighter patches of a nine patch block. Nice open areas when you have plenty of room to lay your grid and quilt freely!
