Geese in the Forest BOM

February is here and with it, the "Geese in the Forest" BOM.



Tokyo Triangles Quilt Design

I've decided to make mine in solids. Bella Solids from Moda to be exact.
I'm using the colors in yesterday's post.

The first block is "Goose Bumps".
GITF BOM Block 1 - Goose Bumps
You can get the pattern here. This BOM is over but you can buy the entire quilt pattern in here.

There's a lot of information over here, but basically there will be a free block pattern (numbered for foundation piecing (tutorial here), but you can piece them too) every month until July.

On the first "work day" of each month, the previous month's block will be removed and a new one will be available. I will do a blog post when that happens, so if you're subscribed to the blog you should be OK.

In August I will make the final quilt layout diagram available.

If you find this BOM a little late, the PDFs for the previous months' blocks will be available in my store for a small fee.

The quilt has 100 blocks, 6" x 6" each. Some blocks only appear a couple of times and some a whole lot more. I played around with the layout until I came up with one I thought looked good and that's the way it ended up.

I made a little button you can put in your sidebar and link to this post if you'd like.

GITF Button

(If enough people show interest, I will start a Flickr group so we can share.)

Edited to add: I will be posting fabric requirements soon. I ran out of time and wanted to get the block up there today.

Pin It!

  9. Wow, wow and wow. The quilt is awesome. But even more thrilling for me is the tutorial on freezer paper piecing. I completed the quilt shown on the photo identifying my comment without knowing anything about paper piecing. I couldn't really find any method I like and THIS ONE IS GREAT. Thank you!! I'll be making this BOM - my first.

  12. Thank you for putting this together! I've never done a BOM before, but I think it'll be a good way to not get burnt out and actually finish a project.
    I think a flickr pool is a great idea, too.

  16. Those are the most beautiful f-geese's I've ever seen. I can't stop staring at them. I love your Geese in the Forest too.

    I love seeing solids. Just somethin' about them, and love that you're carrying the Moda Bella in your shop! Good solids can be so hard to find!

  26. Can't wait to get started. A quick question, if I am making the scrappy version, I need 6.5 yds total? Any placement requirements?
