This beautiful quilt was designed in collaboration with New York Times best selling author Marie Bostwick as a companion pattern for her recent novel Threading the Needle. In the book, a simple quilt is enhanced with embellishments by a long time friend. The combination of their work creates a magnificent quilt rather than one that is simply OK. Friends really are the spice of life!

As you work through this quilt, we hope you find this journey just as inspirational as we did. You will use 8 different tools as you work your way through this project.

The Wing Clipper is a must have tool if you are making Flying Geese units for your quilt. This tool, and the associated Fast Flying Geese construction technique, allow you to make four finished units from five squares. The best part is that each unit is constructed slightly oversized so each can be trimmed to a perfect size with perfect seam placement once the sewing and pressing are complete by using the Wing Clipper tool. You can see the tool in action on our free online video demonstration below. Every single unit will be exactly right every time. Now who ever thought that would happen with Flying Geese units?!?!
