ABC Wednesday--G is for Goose

In quilt piecing terms, most of us consider this unit to be a flying goose.  In this sketch you can identify the goose and the sky by color--they are even referred to that way sometimes.

There are numerous quilt blocks with something about geese in their names, and nearly all of them contain this element of three triangles. Flying geese are also used in creating a number of stars and other blocks.

Or you can have a whole quilt of flying geese.

Appreciate learning the language of quilting from you.
Some day I will take it up, took a course 11 yrs ago, I have all the tools, just need the time. You make it look so inviting.

I know nothing about quilts, so it was interesting to learn about the "flying goose".
