Wild Geese Quilt-Along
Wild Goose Chase Quilt – EQ mockup
Antique quilts can be so inspiring. These Wild Flying Geese, or maybe Geese Gone Wild, is inspired by an antique quilt found in the book The American Quilt. Join in at any time. I like my blocks BIG and I like BIG quilts. Make as many blocks as you want and add your progress to the Flickr group.
Antique quilt inspiration
Here’s the plan:
1 block each week,
24 extra geese for the sashing each week,
Any color you see fit,
Finished quilt top in the end.
Add a button to your blog.
Make the flying geese using the method you prefer the most.

1. Inspiration post.
2. Yardage requirements – Based on using the specialty rulers. Add more yardage for the other construction methods.
- Block size = 16″ finished
- Geese Sashing size = 4″ finished
- Approximate finished size of quilt = 85″ x 85″
- Yardage requirement for Geese = about 6 1/2 yards
- Yardage requirement for Background = about 3 1/2 yards
3. Flying Geese blocks using Specialty Rulers.
4. Flying Geese blocks using the Traditional method.
5. Flying Geese blocks using the No Waste method.

I like your idea of a wild geese quilt-along, but the “program” seems very short for me. Another time certainly. I love flying geese so much.
Thand you to share with us the tuto for the notebook cover.

Love this quilt and the QAL idea – but can’t fit it in now. For sure I will bookmark this. Thank you for the great instructions and pictures.
I`ll bookmark this for next year.I love flying geeese.
Thanks for the great tutes.
[…] it. Now, as for the development of the quilt I’m on the fence. To look at the original quilt see here and scroll down. You can see the geese surrounding all the blocks. That’s what drew me to […]
thanks for all the work! Going to start one soon!
Beautiful! And my list of quilts I want to make grows larger yet again…
Love wild geese only just started making them. Can I ask which method do people favor as the most accurate I have been using the two sized square method , (the no waste on yours) but am willing to try rulers if they are more accurate. Have not tried the traditional.
Where do I find directions to do the quilt along?
Thank you so much for keeping this up here. I have had a wrist problem for the past year so I’ve been unable to do much sewing. I’m hoping to get back to this as I have some pretty cool blocks in my pile. The healing is taking a long time as soft tissue (bone deformity) issues do but I’m getting there. At any rate, just a note of thanks for keeping this up. I suppose, come to think of it, I should consider printing out the sizes just in case!
Your contributions to the quilting world go without saying! *karendianne.
