Sweetwater put this design together to make Block 27 with more flying geese units. |
Tips 'n Tricks:
•In this block you will make the Flying Geese 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 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.
•Or try the Flying Geese x 4 No Math Ruler from Lazy Girl. Everyone who tries it, just raves about how wonderful it is. You can make12 sizes of Flying Geese blocks using this ruler, and there is NO WASTE! No little corners to cut off and no fussy cutting of triangles.
•Once again play with the fabrics and how to use them. The instructions show you one way. You might find another, and don't be afraid to rearrange them at all.
The fabrics we selected for this block are:
The free instructions are currently no longer available. At the end of this Mystery Shuffle they will be mad available again.
