Haha - leave it to Zen Chic to come up with a seemingly complex block. It isn't really. You'll make a few flying geese pieces, squares and rectangles, then put them all together. It's just they'll be small :) |
• Once again, you'll be making Flying Geese in this block using the Easy Corner Triangles as noted by the pin symbol (as shown below in the red circle) on the block you will be making.
What this means is instead of cutting on the diagonal, you will sew on the diagonal. When you do sew, you might wish to sew ever so slightly to the right - one maybe two threads to the right - gives you just enough more fabric when folding over and pressing to make that block or angle square. After you've sewn your line, you then have the option of cutting away the excess fabric in the back or not. Sometimes you may not want to cut the fabric because it helps to keep the piece square, or to size.
• One last thing to consider when making any of these blocks, whether to use steam or not when ironing the seams in the pieces as you put this block together. Using steam does cause your pieces to stretch. So you might consider just using a dry iron on a cotton setting. This way your block sizes will remain consistent.
