Puffy Goose Completion || The Project that turned to Sewing Machine Cover that turned to Hanging Wall Art ||Sewing Post

I titled this post "Puffy Goose" because my friend who doesn't sew said, "I don't know what a puffy goose is, but I love it!"

My puffy flying geese are completed, and I am in love.  Are you too?













My first intentions were to make a mini project that I will just have to do again in the future.  This time with the only intention of sewing that mini project!!  And then I began to love my fabric pull so much that I opted to make a larger project - a sewing machine cover.  And then I loved my geese so much that I decided they needed to be displayed.  Hmm, have you ever experienced anything like this before?






My first time sewing real flying geese.  My first mini quilt/wall hanging.  All unintentional of course.



The fabrics used in this piece are:
Stamped by Ellen Luckett Baker
Skinny laMinx
Essex Linen in Bleach White
Jessica Jones Wildflower

  22. This is a great rendition of flying geese.. yes, puffy geese! LOL
    I've made flying geese before, can you share how you pieced it to get the staggered look? As another poster commented, it would make a great table runner. I want to try to make one for my table and wonder how you staggered the geese for the middle area?

  25. Flying geese is one of the best designs, and the fabric really looks great in this pattern. Very chic! You're making me want to get my crafting space cleared off yet again so I can finally quilt again. My quilt guild would certainly be happy...as yet they have no proof I actually can quilt! haha

  26. LOVE the puffy flying geese - and the quilting is fabulous - is that free motion or regular sewing
