"May 21, 1933-The Wild Goose Chase block originated in the New England states in early colonial days according to Nancy Cabot when she wrote about this block eighty years ago in the Chicago Tribune.  She mentions again that "triangles are the popular symbol of bird designs."

"Any one who has noticed the flight of wild geese will recognize instantly the inspiration back of this design" she wrote.  Her pattern for the Wild Goose Chase quilt sold for "5 cents in stamps or coin."
