Flying Geese Pillow


I drafted the elongated flying geese in this pillow as a foundation pieced pattern to create really crisp points. The high contrast of the black and white makes the simple design quite bold, which I like.

I quilted the flying geese minimally with an outline in black thread, while I filled in the white with a free motion swirl in white thread to keep the emphasis on the triangles.

I finished this 16 x 24 pillow with a lapped zipper back, and I think this quilted pillow cover will be an even better fit once it's washed.

This is very striking in the black & white, and a bold design too. I really like it!

Such a simple design--but made with such impact! My ratty couch pillows sure do need replacing. . . :)

That is just so striking - love the two color contrast!
