Goose in the Pond Day 5 of 31 Day Blog Challenge

One of my earliest and best purchases is this charming Goose in the Pond quilt. I especially love the blocks like this one with sawtooth "coping strips" to make it the needed size.

Quilted with Baptist Fan curved quilting and pieced with scrappy construction. 

This is one of my cheeriest quilts and you can definitely see it was made in the transitional period between the dark Victorian quilts  of the late 1800s and the bright 1930s quilts. It is circa 1910 and from Ohio. It is a fairly uncommon pattern.

Here is the full quilt. Check out the bottom row, some serious technical difficulties but still an awesome quilt.


  1. I love this quilt! The bottom row is awesome....and I love that they chopped those 9 patches off on the top, too!

  2. So much to love about this quilt! This is a pattern I have on my shortlist, but I have promised myself I would have a couple of finishes, first. I am so itching to start it.
    Interesting how the bottom row worked out! : )

  3. It is charming! I love those quilts that Julie Silber calls the "mavericks". Thanks for sharing!
