I love a good quilt block design. Sewing a whole quilt? Not so much! I do love the few quilts I’ve made and the process was wonderful but I don’t want to devote the time to a whole quilt right now. BUT, I do have time to make a quilted pillow to decorate my living room!

I know you might think- that is NOT simple. But it really is very simple and fun to make. I created a video over on my youtube channel to show you how to make the flying geese (those isosceles triangles!) blocks 4 at a time.

This quilt block design is called “breaking out” and was created by Jennie Finch Schauer. I chose it because it only used 12 flying geese triangles and the design is simple yet makes a big impact. I love the look of a traditional quilt block with modern fabrics. These fabrics are by Anna Maria Horner. They are so beautiful and bold- like all of Anna’s fabrics and designs!

I hope you get to make one of these cuties! Above is me with my pillow 🙂 . And look! It matches my 6 year old’s sun flower crafts perfectly. Let me know if you have tips or suggestions in the comments below. Also, I would love to know if you made one of these pillows and what it looks like!
