Chasing Geese - Quilt of the Week

Chasing Geese, 20" x 20", handmade by Pam Geisel

The traditional block for the fifth Focus Through the Prism quilt was the Flying Geese block. Technically the block is one triangle with two background pieces that make a rectangle so for this arrangement I have four geese pointing each direction for a total of 16 geese around the black center square.

All of the seven quilts in the Focus Through the Prism series:

- Use all of the seven colors but have one main color (with smaller pieces of fabric almost the same color to give it some visual texture)

- Have a black border with brown stars

- Have bits of the focus color on the black square in the middle, on the border, and on top of the other colors

- Have a piece of black yarn couched on top

- Have curved quilting lines 1/4" apart that echo the shape of the yarn

In this piece the focus color is INDIGO (dark blue) and the yarn represents A BIRD IN FLIGHT.

My series was featured in Art Quilting Studio Magazine's Autumn 2018 issue on working in a series and they were also included with several quilts that other people made for the Focus Through the Prism challenge including the Wisconsin Quilt Expo in 2016. Above is Chasing Geese with some of the other indigo quilts.
