Twist & Turn Geese

Birds of a Feather Quilt Series

These designs are part of my Birds of a Feather quilt series. I love how the Twist & Turn designs complete the center of the quilt top encompassing the center heart and connecting the other geese and the mariner's compasses.

"Oh, if I could but live another century and see the fruition of all the work for women! There is so much yet to be done." - Susan B. Anthony






Each of the these two designs can be used alone or together.

Used together they re-create design 001 and can be sewn with smaller hoops

Any of these designs can be sewn ‘geese only’ without the aqua/green and pink fabrics I stitched them onto. Simply, skip the first 3 color changes and sew just the geese.

The embroidery files include what is needed to sew the fabric into each one of the geese.

However, when sewn this way they must be stiched directly onto the project - no free standing applique this way.




These files are added because I had to rework them for all of the geese to sew completely.

When sewn the free standing applique way some portions of some of the geese are digitized to appear as if they disappear under the background fabric. When the background fabric is not sewn the incomplete geese show up. Thus the rework.

This is how they look without the extra backgound fabric I stitched mine onto in pink and aqua/green.

These pictures of course do not have the applique fabric added into the geese. But the embroidery files include what is needed to add the fabric to each one of the geese.
