Pattern Details

Love flying geese? If you've ever wanted to make a medallion quilt with circling geese but avoided it because you cringe at the thought of curved piecing, this is for you. No curved piecing, no Y seams and it's paper pieced . It finishes at 48" x 48", pre quilting. Use it as wall art, a baby quilt or expand the top with your favorite blocks to make a bed sized quilt. The quilt in the photo was pieced using 2 1/2" strips with muslin yardage as the sky/background fabric. You can precut the strips for patch sizes that you are comfortable wih or use as I did by turning the strips for best fit on the next patch. There was very little waste by piecing this way. Recommended strip widths for background fabric are included in the directions for piecing with strips. Keep in mind, fabric yardage and the numbers of strips for the geese are estimates. The estimates were calculated from the 3 tops I completed, with the greatest number of fabric from each top being noted as the recommended yardage. If you are not a confident paper piecer with a high comfort level for turning and you will cut the strips prior to piecing you may need to purchase additional fabric. 2 files included with purchase. Pattern includes full sized templates but it will require 33 pieces of 8.5" x 14" legal size paper for border templates (1 file) along with 8.5" x 11" letter size paper for the remainder of the pattern. If you do not want the additional expense of or do not have legal size on hand, you will only need to print file #2.. The border pieces will need to be taped together and cut apart if you are NOT using size 8.5" x 14" paper

Recommended with this pattern
