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.
