Flying Geese Border
Awright - now we're moving onto the next phase of this Mystery Shuffle Quilt. We are now going to make the inner border to this quilt which consists of Flying Geese units. The finished size for each Flying Geese unit is 1 1/2" x 3". You will be making a total 176 units - ah, don't be afeared. It'll go fast. |
We have put a kit together - see the prints selected below. Additionally the kit will include some neutrals too. However we also encourage you to use any fabrics left over from the squares you made - you will need lights and darks (no neutrals). The idea is to make this inner border as scrappy as possible. But if you don't have any left over, our kit includes enough for you to make the full inner sash.
The Not So Bright:
You can use the Easy Corner Triangle method to make your Flying Geese 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 since you do have to make sooo many of the same size, you might consider this ruler from ezQuilting.
The instructions are no longer available for download. However if you did miss downloading the Flying Geese Border, these will all be made available at the close of the program.
