Flock of Geese was originally published as part of the 2018 Quilter's Planner and know as a stand alone pattern, I have expanded the instructions for both a baby and lap sized quilt.

Flock of Geese is a modern take on the traditional Birds in the Air quilt block designed for advanced beginner / intermediate level quilters.  To create the quilt top, I pulled various teal, green, blue, and yellow colored printed from my stash.

I assembled the quilt top with the blocks on-point, giving a different look to the traditional Birds in the Air design.  I quilted Flock of Geese with randomly spaced diagonal lines to form a cross-hatch pattern using Aurifil 50 wt in white (color 2024). The diagonal lines are in a variety of spaciongs from about 3/8" to 1".  I like the texture the quilting gives, but I must admit that it was very time consuming.
