The geese are flying all crooked

Little flower baskets with crooked geese border

... over at Sew We Quilt/Stash Manicure, and I flung em!  Go over and see my clever geese, and good luck on the draw!  (I still want to say Stash Manicure - it's just like saying "People's Drug" instead of "CVS Drugs" - I'm a creature of habit).

The quilt pictured above is one I made with the technique I'm showing on Sew We Quilt today, you won't believe your eyes!  You might remember that I was trying to make border decisions in July, on this post.  As you can see on my Sew We Quilt post, I flew with the geese.

If (I say "IF") you're already one of my followers, it would be nice to have my blog listed on your active blogroll - share the wealth so to speak  :o)

Sew forth and sew on...

  62. I am so happy that Madame Samm has different cultures this week! Your quilts are very creative, and I am going to be very happy following your blog to learn more. I have quite a bit of fabric from Ghana and as a new quilter, hope to someday use that in quilts for my children, who are 1/2 Ghanaian.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Thanks for your giggly post over at Madame Samms. Even though I'm in Canada where geese (crooked or not) are "our thang", these remind me more of the "wonky rocky mountains" that I live near. I'm going to make me some wonky mountains on a quilt sometime. Thanks for all the variations!

  88. The wonky geese are great. Love that elephant fabric. My mother loves elephants, so they always catch my eye. I'm thinking of using geese in a Christmas quilt, as a border. Maybe I can use 'your' way, instead.

Although I do occasionally post something on my TQS member blog that I feel a need to share, I do not consider myself a blogger--I'm more of a blog follower.

Just a few days ago, I was thinking that there aren't many Black quilters/bloggers and now I found you! My best friend growing up was black. Her name was Katherine, but I just called her Rine! That was in Louisiana and now I'm in MN. I'd give anything to see her again! To give her a big hug. I'm now a Follower of your blog and look forward to learning from you. And, if you have the time, could you tell me about the photo in Silent Sunday? I love the little girl!

  140. I 'm wondering if I tried real hard to make the geese wonky, they'd be straight? I am so much better at wonky log cabin and wonky stars by mistake I'm wondering if I could ever get my wonky geese to turn out as good as yours. Fun tute and I loved the pictures. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  141. Wow, those are amazing, I'd love to win. I've always been intimidated with sewing triangles of any kind.

    ReplyDelete
  142. I read about you at Madame Samm's. Those wonky geese do amazing things to a quilt. Thanks for showing us how to do that. I will try to make those and now that I follow you, if I have problems I can ask for advice.
    I think that iron would really improve my ironing skills.

    ReplyDelete
  143. I just read your tutorial over at Stash Manicure and I really like your "crooked geese". The quilt I like the best is where you have the geese as a border, very bright and colorful. It seems to move on its own. Thanks for the tutorial.
