Today, I am thrilled to be sharing this new Flying In Squares quilt as well as a Free PDF Pattern for it!!! This quilt features the Daisy Fields by Bev McCullough. The design mixes Flying Geese and Squares to make two fun blocks from one 10" Stacker that come together in an adorable picnic quilt!!!
Flying In Squares is made using a No-Waste Flying Geese method and the Flying Geese finish at a whopping 4" x 8", so ya, these are some big Geese :) It makes putting this quilt together super fun and fast!!! You have once basic Building Block, and the rest are sashing and square squares. You alternate the layouts of your units to make 2 blocks, one square made with geese and one square made with squares . . . hence, Flying In Squares :) There is an original tutorial for this quilt here, but I changed the size and layout to make the quilt a nice picnic size and to use up all of the layer cake!!!
And this design allows you to really give the quilt a fun scrappy look, even though you just used one 10" Stacker!!!! And you really use up that 10" stacker to make this Picnic Size 80" x 80" quilt. And as I mentioned, there is a free PDF Download of this pattern, so you can make your own!!! To get the FREE PDF Flying In Squares Pattern Download, just click here and download it ;)
When it came time to quilt mine, I decided on an all over wavy feather. I just love how it adds so much curvy goodness to all of those sharp piecing lines. And the texture is so yummy, lots of quilting, but still super soft in all of the petals :)
Thank you so much for popping in today and each and every day. If you have any questions at all on making your own Flying in Squares quilt, don't hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
