Dreaming of Bears and Geese

The North Star Quilt Guild created a quilt that celebrates our northern roots and our close relationship with nature. The name of our quilt comes from the use of the traditional Bear Paw and Flying Geese blocks that form the quilt top. Guild members spent many hours piecing then ripping stitches then piecing again to get the design just right. The quilting designs represent our northern wilderness and the natural elements that surround us. Follow the bear as he moves through a day, as shown by the traveling sun and the dancing northern lights. Geese fly toward the woven center with winds swirling beside. In the outer border eagles soar and catch their prey that inhabit our northern lakes.

We hope you enjoy our interpretation of our northern community.
