Simple Flying Geese Quilted Pillow Tutorial

August 30, 2019

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!
