After 3.5 years, I finally finished my “Geese in the Forest” Quilt! I started this quilt back in November 2009, when my son was 2 months old. Two moves and another baby (now a toddler) later, it’s done!
Here are the stats:
Size: 60″ x 60″
Number of Flying Geese: 459 (front and back)
Fabrics: Vintage Bed Linens for the geese, Kona White for the background and Architextures Black for the binding.
I quilted wavy lines going in various directions on my Juki TL200Qi. This is my new favorite quilting pattern. It adds so much wonderful texture, but it is quite time-consuming!

The quilt is so colorful, so I decided to use Architextures Black for the binding. I love how it acts as a frame. I think everything I’ve made lately has a bit of Architextures in it!.
I made some extra geese for the back, because how can I resist a rainbow of flying geese?
I love it so much that I want to hang it on a wall. Maybe I should make one that is half-sized as a wall hanging. Check back in 3.5 years for the finish!
