Crazy Geese - Every Which Way

Do you sometimes start out with a quilty plan in your head and then your quilt plans itself?
These were the schnizzles from the corners of my geese, I used Washi by Rashida Coleman Hale for Timeless Treasures, I love this line and I think you can still purchase some on etsy try here

And the geese turned into these...3 1/2" x 6 1/2" geese my head they were all in line flying straight and true in their lovely colour groups of 2, 4 or 8...but it wasn't right when I laid them out...they were not happy

These geese were what I was sewing when Mr OWB passed away and to be honest I've struggled with them for 4 months...but I wanted to sew them together and for them to be a quilt not just because I like the fabric...but they didn't want to fly straight... they wanted to twist and turn and change direction...but still show me that they could be pretty together...but more true to how life is for us at the moment
Too deep in the thinking for a quilt?...I quite like how they look but I'm wondering if they would look even more symbolic floating off centre in a background of Kona Snow?
A small bit of organised chaos in the big quilt of life.....LOL
Geese must be in the wind at the moment ...go and have a look at this gorgeous WIP over at Blue Elephant Stitches...GORGEOUS and Amy has a great tutorial for geese out of charm squares
Linking up with Alyce for Sew Cute her post on scraping!


  1. Oh Rebecca, major kudos to you for continuing to work on this one!! I never thought, when I started quilting, that sewing would become such an emotional journey for me. Working on my sister's second baby's quilt was so hard - what if this quilt wasn't going to end up with an owner either?! I hope you're finding some true sewing therapy with this quilt xx

    1. Hi Alyce...I did give you a wordy reply via iPhone ...but was wondering could I sync those replies to my who knows all about techy stuff that I have no clue about LOL

  2. This is a gorgeous quilt.. So sorry it was an emotional journey, but it's turning out so lovely. :)
