The annual contest theme at the National Quilt Museum in Paducah this year is Flying Geese. Let’s see what we can do with Flying Geese that takes our quilts away from being predictable and ordinary. If you play with the concept (even if you have no desire to make the quilt you design), you may be approaching my favorite pastime – playing with EQ7 as a video game. It’s really fun to try new ideas and look for more inspiration!
My two examples have a lot of white negative space in them and offer some non-traditional ways of presenting Flying Geese. They are designed primarily from blocks in the EQ7 block library, though I did design a few of the blocks myself. Take the challenge! See what new and different way you can present Flying Geese!
