Geese In Motion
I love working on quilts that don’t have a square block pattern because it interrupts the usual quilting routine I have. Recently I found a quilt that has a horizontal pattern, and it’s stunning.
Jenny Doan from Missouri Star Quilt Company is back at it again with yet another video tutorial for a gorgeous quilt. This one is called “Geese In Motion,” and it’s really unique.
Printed strips come together to make a feather-like pattern that you’ve never seen anywhere else. The quilt has a back and forth flow to it as your move down the quilt
If you want to build this quilt yourself, you’ll want to get ahold of your supplies. Luckily, you don’t need a lot, so go through your fabric stash and grab the following.
I adore this quilt not only because of it’s stunning appearance but because of how easy it is to put together. Once you’ve gathered your supplies, we can get started!
How To Build The Quilt
Jenny’s company Missouri Star sells something called the binding tool. Jenny uses this to cut her printed strips to the right size and angle.
Once you’ve cut a ton of those strips just like Jenny does, you will use a ton of little squares of background fabric to create a strip with a half square triangle on the end.
From here, you’ll form larger strips out of the smaller ones. You’ll add borders and other triangles to square off the “blocks” into long rectangles, and then your quilt top is done!
Add some batting, some backing fabric, and any free motion stitching, and you’re done with this beautiful quilt! Watch Jenny make it below and get started on your own!
