Our Classic & Vintage series takes traditional quilt blocks and adds a modern twist. Today we’re sharing the latest pattern release, the Geese on the Pond Quilt! It uses a combination of nine patches and half-square triangles to create a beautiful design. With added flying geese blocks in the setting, it turns into Geese on the Pond! Read more for all the details on this vintage-inspired quilt and the FREE Quilt Block Pattern.
The Quilt Pattern
The quilt pattern gives instructions for making Crib, Square Lap, Long Lap, and Queen-sized quilts. To make your quilt just like ours, we have the Geese on the Pond Quilt Kit, which includes everything we used, and you can also grab the backing set!
We are loving Threads that Bind by Blackbird Designs for Moda Fabrics. This collection’s style is reminiscent of antique and vintage fabrics with fashionable florals, text, stripes, dots, and stars, all in elegant earthy tones, making it the perfect choice for a Geese on the Pond Quilt reviving a Classic & Vintage block.
The Quilt Block
If you want to sew with us, we have a FREE video tutorial where Kimberly gives lots of tips to make easy half-square triangles and nine patches for this Classic & Vintage quilt block.
The FREE Geese on the Pond Block Pattern makes a 15.5″ x 15.5″ unfinished block. We also used Triangles on a Roll and Flying Geese Foundation Paper when making our quilt. These notions are included in the Geese on the Pond Quilt Kit.
