Giant Flying Geese Quilt

88 x 96

This quilt is made from giant flying geese blocks. You can find the directions here and another example here. I added a few more blocks and got rid of the border. The blocks are mostly set in groups of 2 geese with an occasional single one here or there to make the row long enough.

The flying geese blocks finish at 16.5 by 8.5 and I didn't have a ruler large enough to trim them easily. Other than that, it was a fast and easy finish.

I had been looking for a extra wide back for a while online, but while I was in Joann's one day I saw a new flannel extra wide backing. It was white with black and looked perfect for my quilt. Plus it will make this quilt extra soft and warm.

Linking with Finished or Not Friday, Crazy Mom Quilts, and Confessions of a Fabric Addict.


  1. Great quilt! I love how your wings are different fabrics on a lot of the geese. Your backing is perfect!

  2. Oh, do I love this quilt and all of its scrappiness. I have the Maker bundle and was planning on using it for another quilt but your pattern is very tempting since I have a die I could use. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I have seen some other giant flying geese quilts. I love yours! It is bright and cheerful. Love the black and white on the back as well.

  4. It's a beauty, for sure! You got the color combo just right to make it so modern.

  5. This is a pretty amazing quilt. I think I want to make one!
