Geese at the Cabin Quilt Pattern in 4 sizes - Lap Quilt to King Size


An original pattern to combine my favorite elements in a quilt. Log Cabin Blocks and Flying Geese. My version is based on browns, blues, dark red, and creams. This pattern was inspired by my sister's 50th birthday. There are 50 square in a square cornerstones, 36 Log Cabin Blocks in a Barn Raising layout, and 366 Flying geese to acknowledge every day of each of those years. The original (pictured) measures 57" square - but I have included instructions for three other sizes as well. 76, 95 or 114" inches square. Lap quilt to King-sized! That should cover a lot of territory. This is a great project for all those scraps that you can't throw away! Mine includes over 150 fabrics - from ancient to recent. What fun! There are 1721 pieces in this top and 101 on the back, if you choose that option.

I have included many pictures and drawings of the construction steps, fabric requirements, easy to read instructions, seam allowance pressing directions, and a bit of whimsy. There is even an awesome tutorial for amazingly accurate Flying Geese from squares so there is no waste and there are no bias edges to deal with.

This is presented in a PDF that can be emailed to you as soon as payment is received. There are no shipping costs. Please remember to download the original attachment in order to get all of the pictures of the steps as they progress.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

My sister and her partner shared the big 5-0 event this summer. I needed to come up with something that would celebrate that event in style! Their Log Cabin got me going, but I wanted each and every day of their lives to be accounted for. So - 50 years in the cornerstones, and 366 days in the Flying Geese. Unfortunately, I couldn't make those numbers work on the front - but almost. One last cornerstone found a home on the back, flanked by streams of 15 geese per side flying to the center. It's a great place for a signature and a sentiment. This doesn't mean it HAS to be used in this way. It's a great quilt without the 50th angle. Your ideas can easily be incorporated into this big statement quilt full of love.

Materials Used

Scraps, scraps, scraps in my case - but I do have a hankering (and a bulging scrap basket!) for that approach. This could easily be done with a more controlled palette of fabric. 100% cotton is the way to go for this project though. Makes washing easy.

More Info

Each element is broken down into easy-to-complete steps. Lots of pictures help you to visualize the methods used for fabulous results. There is even a tutorial for my fast, easy and accurate method of making Flying Geese with no waste! With even a little experience - this is an achievable project for beginners to experts. Unfortunately, the time to do it is not included.
