Flying Geese Quilt Pattern

Not all Valentine’s Day quilts need to be hearts. Quilting with traditional reds, pinks and purples do the trick as well. Look at how using red toned fabric in the Red Geese Quilt pattern by Zen Chic, keeps to the Valentine’s Day theme, without screaming hearts and kisses. This quilt pattern is a new twist on a classic pattern. These "Geese" fly in all directions and soon land in your home. This is a layer cake friendly pattern that uses the "no waste" flying geese technique.
