Scraps Take Center Stage in Style!

Easy patchwork and flying geese units combine to make a stunning quilt. This is a wonderful use for scraps, or choose a wide array of pre-cuts to give the quilt extra vibrancy.

Vary the colors and values between the blocks to move the eye through the quilt, as the designer did in her version.

Another option is to keep most of the patches of similar value, with some variation within the blocks. Or, play with color and value placement for your own variation.

However you choose to place colors and values, the result is sure to be a stunning quilt. You’ll find several beautiful example on this Pinterest board to give you some ideas.

Despite how complex it looks, this is a fairly easy quilt to construct. Fabric squares, flying geese units, sashing and large triangles along the borders are all simple to piece.

We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
