|Buffalo Bill Commemorative
By: Mary Valaika,
Made for my son, a “test” quilt with many new items and methods: used a wool batting, the new method of making flying geese, machine quilted myself using my tabletop machine. Buffalo Bill lived in my area, still a local celebrity, and a fascinating character.

Pieced [not applique] from a design by Caryl Bryer Fallert, I used silver & shocking pink lame fabrics to add some extra zing, and am particularly pleased with the quilted swan and embroidered feather designs. Free motion feather quilted by me on a domestic sewing machine. The geese are silver lame.

Machine pieced and hand quilted. The large geese were pieced also. Took quite a while! It’s a king size quilt on my queen size bed, hangs to bed frame with a big pillow tuck. One of my favorite projects.

|Geese in the Strawberry Patch
By: Monika Kinner-Whalen,
I made this for my youngest child – this was my first try at flying geese, and couldn’t resist the pretty strawberry fabric.

I really like the circular flying geese pattten, so decided I need to make a quilt using that pattern, but upsized. So I made the pattern as big as I could. The central block is 21 inches square. I love the way this has turned out, but have learnt that upsizing that much makes it harder to make.

My 2 favorite blocks – free form houses and mini geese – make up this little quilt and utilize all those lovely bits of fabric you just hate to throw away. Each geese unit is 1 x 1/2″. Machine pieced, paper pieced , hand pieced and hand quilted.

A fabric swap, many years ago, with Australian and Canadian quilters. I added the New Zealand fabric I had swapped with these ladies and some Pacific themed fabric from a local shop. It seemed fitting to do the foundation pieced flying geese – a Pacific migration!

|Tulips and Geese
I made this quilt for an online quilting forum challenge. I had never done paper piecing before, nor had ever worked with curved pieces. I was quite happy with the way this turned out!
