Today, I sewed a particularly pretty little block.

I often asked myself what is so very appealing to the traditional goose block. I confess I do not know.

Anyone who is familiar with the Farmer’s Wife quilt, will notice that I did not stick to the original pattern—again. This time, however, coincidentally. I did not look into the pattern when joining the last two seams, and I was very sure that the two rows of geese should fly in opposite directions. I only found out later that this is not what Laurie Hird intended. But still, I did not redo the block because I like it just the same, or even better, for it scotches the impression of looking at two very tall fir trees.
