This dynamic lap-sized quilt measuring 63”x63” is reminiscent of flying geese (hence the name), but is actually made with simple half square triangles. It was inspired by a traditional quilt block called “North Wind.” The hardest part is choosing colors! This version uses three solids: a light and a dark gray, plus a contrasting accent color, but the possibilities are endless. Try a print as the accent fabric, or perhaps a whole rainbow. I can’t wait to see what you come up with—use #meetingofthegeesequilt when sharing your creation so we can all enjoy the variations!
