The Snow Day Quilt featuring Flying Geese units

About this Quilt

Drawing on memories of her North Dakota childhood for inspiration, designer Kari Schell created Snow Day in blue and gray batik quilt fabrics. The fabrics give it a classic, cool look, and each of the quilt blocks are set on point (meaning they are turned 90 degrees to make a “diamond” shape in the quilt instead of a “square”), which makes the Flying Geese units look as though they are taking off! Our Sew Easy tips help make the constructing the Flying Geese units simple. If you’ve never experimented with flying geese quilt units before, this quilt can be the perfect introduction to the technique, especially with our Sew Easy video!
