Here is a block designed by Kansas Troubles Quilters that consists of squares and rectangles. Since all of these blocks you've seen so far are just 6" finished, if there's a particular block you like - make several blocks and put them together to make pillows or table runners. |
• And, once again to make the small flying geese triangles, note the Easy Corner Triangles as noted by the pin symbol (as shown below in the red circle)on the block you will be making.
Therefore, 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.
• All you need are 2 different contrasting fabrics - a light and a medium or dark, your choice. You could fussy cut the center block if you like. The pattern shows you 2 different ways to put this together - a positive or negative. However, consider turning the outside 4 corner blocks around to create an entirely different look.
