Make a Few at a Time Until It’s Done!
This beautiful quilt is a wonderful example of what can happen when a project is tackled a bit at a time.
Rather than attempting to sew all of the Flying Geese units at once, Sheryl Johnson from Temeculca Quilt Company set aside time every Wednesday to make eight units. After 33 weeks she had enough for this charming quilt.
Each unit finishes at 2-1/2″ x 5″, but you can make yours any size you want. Sheryl recommends the chart found on Moonlight Quilters (from Dani Fisk) for a quick 4-at-a-time tutorial and size chart. Click here for the chart, then click on the chart image for a large printable version.
Scraps are perfect for this quilt. Or use a wide variety of fabrics to achieve a scrappy look.
Sheryl’s quilt finished at 55″ x 65″, however you can easily adjust the size by adding or deleting Flying Geese units.
You’ll find all of the posts about this quilt here. It’s fun to see up close how varied the blocks in Sharyl’s quilt are, as well as quilts in other color combos.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
