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.
