Wings Quilt Pattern


This is a pdf quilt pattern.

While designing Wings, I found myself referring to the elongated triangles as wings, and the black triangles that are present in some of the triangle sets as “beaks.”  I then arranged the triangles in flocks of birds flying in the same direction.  There is a slight change of course in the second row (the watermelon colored block 4th from the left).  Where that bird turns and pushes through the wind heading in the opposite direction, the quilting changes too.  From the tip of that bird out, the quilting is a diagonal grid.  To the left of that bird, the quilting is only on the diagonal.

This block allows for intentional placement of your fabric to play with directional prints to great effect in the wings.


Finished Quilt Size: 48” x 54.”

Fabric Requirements:

(24) 12” x 12” (minimum) scraps per “wing” (These are oversize, allowing room to play with fabric placement.)
1/2 yard black fabric

3 1/4 yards white fabric (can use more than one shade as seen in sample; more yardage will be necessary for directional background print)

binding: 1/2 yard

backing: 3 1/2 yards

batting: 54” x 60”

Pattern includes numbered, colored diagrams as well as full size, mirror image pattern pieces, ready for foundation piecing.
