Jane A. Stickle Quilt row B: JAS-B06 – Wild Goose Chase

This block qualifies as time consuming and even as easy if using paper piecing.

I used 2 charm squares for this one.

I paper pieced the centre piece. And added the border at the end.

There are 43 pieces in this block. It took me probably 3 hours to make. I’m not a fast quilter.

I pressed all the individual pieces as I stitched them together. I’m doing this for every block now because I get the points to align better and the block looks flatter at the end.

Some of the pieces in the centre are narrower than 1/4 in so I had to cut my seam allowances about 1/8 in.

I’m very pleased with this block.

Where to get the Jane A. Stickle Quilt patterns

Susan Gatewood’s paper foundation . All patterns are free though Susan says “I only ask that you consider making a donation to the Bennington Museum, in Bennington, Vermont. And if you do, it would make me tremendously happy if you would tell them that you have received help from me.” I totally recommend Susan’s patterns as they are very easy to use.

Virtual quilt

See all blocks I’ve done together in a larger size.


  1. Thank you!

    Elizabeth the virtual quilt is not quite the real thing. It’s done manually and I don’t recommend it.
