Geese Girls

The main quilt from my first book, Geese In The Rose Garden, is a block of the month quilt. It has 6 pieced blocks, 6 applique blocks and a border that is appliqued and pieced. For the last 7 months I have taught this BOM at Specialty Quilts. This Monday was the last segment.

It has been a wonderful journey. There were 19 women who participated. They either had little or no experience with applique. As the months went by I watched their confidence, skills and addiction grow. They are all now excellent at applique and able to tackle any project with confidence. It has been alot of fun and I am thankful to have met them all. I will miss them all. Below are some photos of their blocks.


  1. nice jobs ladies, looks like all of you had a great time, I recognize a few faces from that group. Your blocks and quilts look wonderful. Great pattern and teacher!!!

  2. It is amazing what you can learn with time!! Great job girls! And I'm sure a few good friends were made along the way.... :-)

  3. Dawn, thanks for your generous sharing of your hand appliqué knowledge and expertise.
    The smiles on our faces says it all - - - - we certainly enjoyed learning and experiencing needle-turn appliqué.
