When I saw this block by Jennie (aka sunflowerquilts) on flickr it was love at first sight. knew I had to make one and today I will show you how to make it too.
Skill: Flying Geese, the "Magic" Method.
Fabric: Choose three different fabrics for the geese and one fabric for the background. Make sure the geese standout against the background fabric.
1 - 5.25 inch square out of 3 different fabrics
(3 squares total)
12 - 2 7/8 inch squares
4 - 6.5 x 2.5 inch rectangles
Draw a line from corner to corner on each 2 7/8 inch square.
Pin two small squares to opposite corners of each large square. Position the small squares so the diagonal line runs from corner to corner. The small squares will overlap in the center.
Sew each set of three flying geese together.
And you are done!
You did it!
