The Modern Flying Geese Quilt

It has been almost one year since I started blogging and cannot believe the wonderful opportunities that are starting to come my way.  One of those is being asked to teach a beginners class at Patchwork On Central Park in Malvern.  
 Modern Flying Geese Quilt

Although teaching is a little outside of my comfort zone, I have so many family, friends and fellow bloggers cheering me on that I feel well supported, and look forward to stretching my horizons.  I also find comfort in being well prepared and have written a full pattern for the Modern Flying Geese Quilt that I will be teaching beginner students.


I have made two very different versions of the Modern Flying Geese Quilt and look forward to seeing many more.


So if you happen to be in Melbourne, are a beginner quilter, and would like to attend one of my classes please to learn how to make this quilt for yourself, please contact Patchwork On Central Park for more details or to make a booking. Phone (03) 9885 4480.  Places are limited. 


For those of you who would love to come along, but are geographically challenged I have written a detailed pattern (pfd file) available from my Etsy Store.

Feel free to email me if you have any questions.

  1. How cool would that be to actually be in Melbourne taking a class with you! That would definitely be a stop on my vacation. I am sure you will do what you do best. You will inspire others and help others create wonderful quilts. Congrats they are lucky students!

  2. Whoohoo on the teaching, it takes lots of patience. I found having a poster board with each step of the block construction the best thing I did when teaching. Have fun and relax, congrats!

  24. I LOVE the 3rd photo. The way you have taken it with the geese on the diagonal looks awesome! I think I am going to try that on a wall hanging sized quilt. It looks very modern. You may have just inspired a new trend!!!
