Rainbow Geese Miniature

I made this miniature quilt (it measures about 18"x21") from scraps I had left over from other projects. The geese were made with 1"x 1.5" rectangles and I was able to find 100 different fabrics to use so no two geese are alike. I hoped to make the whole thing with fabric I had, but it needed a graphic border and nothing in my stash was quite right so I had to buy the black and white stripe. It is just what the quilt needed to show off all the colors. 

I machine pieced the quilt and hand quilted it with various colors of thread to blend into each block. The columns between the geese have a rope-type design hand quilted into them with purple thread. 

The quilt design, based on the traditional flying geese block is my own.

 I am entering this into the 2013 Bloggers Quilt Festival at Amy's Creative Side in the ROYGBIV Category. Check out all the beautiful festival quilts and please consider voting for mine.


  1. Love this. That's a deep stash to have 100 that aren't repeats. Great job.

  2. Well, I'm a sucker for teeny tiny piecing. And geese! This is so great!!
