Quilt Block Pattern

Goose in the Pond is a traditional quilt block pattern. I've included cutting instructions for two sizes, a quilt block that finishes at 22-1/2" square and a smaller version that finishes at 11-1/4".

The quilt block in the illustration uses two different batik fabrics and a neutral background. Change the fabrics to suit you.

The Goose in the Pond quilt block goes together quickly with quick piecing techniques. It's made up of simple squares, half-square triangle units and two different strip pieced units.
