Flying Four-Patch Wall Hanging

To make a scrappy, small-scale quilt, select solids or tone-on-tones in a wide range of hues, such as those in the Bear Essentials collection by P&B Textiles. To keep the multicolor rows from becoming too busy, use a single tone-on-tone fabric for the background in each Flying Geese row.

Assemble Flying Geese Units

1. Use a pencil to mark a diagonal line on wrong side of each golden orange and light brown print 1-1/2" square.

2. Align a marked golden orange print square with one end of a light, medium, or dark print 1-1/2x2-1/2" rectangle (Diagram 1; note direction of marked line). Sew on marked line; trim seam allowance to 1/4". Press open attached triangle, pressing seam away from golden orange print. Align a golden orange print marked square with opposite end of rectangle (Diagram 1; again note direction of marked line). Stitch, trim, and press as before to make an orange Flying Geese unit. The unit should be 2-1/2x1-1/2" including seam allowances.

3. Repeat Step 2 to make 72 orange Flying Geese units total.

4. Using light brown print marked squares instead of golden orange, repeat Step 2 to make 36 brown Flying Geese units.
