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.
