Today I still have a quilt with flying geese to share! Flying is one of the newest Quilty Love patterns. You can you can find it here in the sample shop.
I made some of these quilts with flying geese! You can view all of my finished quilts here.
This flying geese quilt is made from Ruby Star Society speckled fabrics. Speckled is a Ruby Star base and so good! Subtle prints that read like solids are my sewing favorites, so you’ll know I love these.
For this version of Flying I chose six of the warm colors from the Speckled line.
Ruby Star Society spotted fabrics used in this quilt
Colors used: Metallic Daisy, Metallic Cotton Candy Pink, Metallic Peony, Metallic Strawberry, Metallic Cactus and Metallic Peach
Flying Quilt Pattern – a simple quilt for flying geese
Flying is a simple quilting pattern for flying geese. It looks great in solids or prints. I’ve made a couple of both 😉
All quilt sizes
The pattern includes instructions for a crib-size quilt, throw-size quilt, double-size quilt, and queen-size quilt.
Four geese flying at once
The Flying Geese are made in four at a time for super fast construction and no waste. I love doing flying geese like this because you don’t have any corners to cut and waste.
The size of the flying geese increases with the different sizes, so the layout stays the same.
The throw-sized flying quilt uses six feet of fabric. Pick six half meters from your supply or find a line of fabric and choose six of your favorite prints.
The colors in this flying goose quilt were so much fun to sew. You are so bright and happy. I love the mustard or (cactus as it’s called) with the pink and peaches.
Long arm quilting
I sent this quilt with flying geese Knot and thread for quilting. Kait went for this fun quilt design that goes perfectly with the geometric dots of the flying geese.
The flying is completed with a pink tie in the Ruby Star Society grid row. That color is strawberry.
Check out the quilting! Such a beautiful design!
You can see the subtle speckle print very well in this photo below. The background of this quilt for flying geese is another Ruby Star Society grid. I love using their scrims as a background. The background fabric used here is the color of cotton candy.
I was back on the kitchen table for that one … haha. The one-year-old has been busy and when I have to sew seriously I usually drag everything into the dining room.
Look how pretty these rows of flying geese are all lined up like this.
This quilt is an extension of a quilt I made for Love Quilting Magazine years ago. It was a surfboard blanket and the surfboards had a single row of flying geese with sashes on each side. I’ve wanted to develop this into a full quilt for a long time.
These Flying Quilt photos were taken in my daughter’s room before we rearranged them. It had the perfect lighting scenario before we moved it … haha. Maybe one day I’ll have to put it on hold and take pictures of some quilts.

Securing and binding
Both the back and the binding of this flying throw size quilt are grid in the color Strawberry by Ruby Star Society.
I tend to use the backing as a tie in a lot of my quilts. It’s easy and a great way to use up all of that extra fabric that you cut off. There is always more than enough to tie the blanket.
