Wild Goose Chase Quilt Block Pattern

This Wild Goose Chase quilt pattern got its name from the many families going Westward in search of fortune. It has also has the name Flying Geese and Oddfellows Cross.


The finished block is 12 inches square. Blocks can be set straight or on the diagonal. We have planned ours on the diagonal with 39 pieced blocks, 16 half blocks to fill in the ends and sides and 4 quarter blocks to fill in the corners. One color of print (quite often red) and white are the traditional colors used in this quilt.

The quilt with a 4 inch border will measure approximately 76 by 110 inches.
