Pumpkins + Flying Geese = Fall!

I’ve been dreaming of pumpkins lately and came up with this little mug rug.

Then I got to thinking, what would it look like to insert flying geese into a pieced or applique pumpkin? This idea was generated from Gail Garber’s book Flying Colors, which I first heard about on Terri Stegmiller’s blog Stegart. I was intrigued by Terri’s design and bought the book from my local quilt shop Fabrics and Friends.

Playing, here is what I have so far:

And also an insert of triangles:

I am just having so much fun with this concept! And my mind is racing with other ideas of where to insert flying geese into quilts!

    Norma, I followed directions from Gail Garber’s book Flying Colors. Basically, you draw a flying geese insert to fit into any shape you dream up. Check out her book for details. I might be able to share a link here for my own hand drawn pattern. Check back soon to see if I was successful.
