Baby Bird Quilt Pattern


Though there is free flying geese information on the web to be found, here’s a pattern I pulled together for tackling my own version of both momma & baby flying geese. In the pattern, we talk about inside out, blended, and scrappy geese as well as getting the most from your fabric all the while.

It’s a gather-FQs-from-the-stash-&-GO! kind of pattern & scrap-busting also.
