Classic meets Modern - October: The Flying Geese Block

7:30:00 AM

It's October 1! Fall is officially here, and there's another block for the Classic meets Modern Quilt Along here at Sew at Home Mummy!

Sew at Home Mummy

If you're just joining us for the first time, welcome! Feel free to play along. Each month I post instructions to a very classic/traditional block, with a bit of a modern spin - be it in composition, style, or fabric choices. Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to join in on the fun and put your spin on the block (and feel free to just use my instructions, or to take the proverbial ball and run with it! But please - no running with scissors.)

Previous month's instructions can be found {here}.

Please be respectful of my original patterns and work - and make sure that if you use my tutorials, you credit it back to me.

Okay! Let's get going, shall we?

Again, I've created two patterns for you for this month's block - feel free to use them, or use them as a guideline and go crazy with your blocks!

Feel free to link your Geese up below, and, don't forget to add them to the Flickr group if you'd like!

  1. Ooooh, love it...cannot wait to play!

  2. Since I just recently found you (Rush Hour Blog Hop), I think I may have to go back through the year and make a sampler quilt with your monthly block patterns!! BTW, isn't Angela's quilting so much fun??!! I have all of her books sitting on my longarm for reference!!

  3. I have a head start on my blog heading. :-) And I have a memory from the 70s. Beth Gutcheon had a quilt in one of the first Quilt National exhibits at the Dairy Barn in Athens Ohio; her quilt was called "The Goose is Loose." I googled it but could find only text references, no images. But the Michael James book should be in the library if you want to track it down. Thinking cap on.

  4. ooh…these geese look like so much fun! Maybe I'll go ahead and make them :)
