Block 6 is designed by American Jane. And in this block you will learn how to make Flying Geese using the Easy Corner Triangle method of stitch and flip. |
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, 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.
•Once again, play with the values of the fabric - just find 2 fabrics - a light and a medium or dark, your choice. Since only 2 fabrics are used and depending upon which way you use them, it will be a positive or negative effect. And you have so many different ways to use the color as shown in the directions. The center block of 4 squares could be one color, or not. Your choice.
