There are 4 flying geese units in this block. To make them, cut (4) 3.5×6.5″ rectangles from background fabric and (8) 3.5″ squares for star points. Follow flying geese directions from this post. You will also need (4) 3.5″ squares for your corners in background fabric as well.
Layout your block like the picture above. Note the direction of all the flying geese that make the sawtooth stars points.
Time to Sew
Sew each row together using a 1/4″ seam allowance. Then press. I pressed all my seams open on this step to decrease bulk which I’ll be grateful for during the quilting phase.
Next, sew your rows to each other (I like to start from the bottom and work my way up, but do it your way!). Don’t forget to nest your seams! Then press. Again, I pressed these seams open.
Remember to repeat these steps for your second block just like this one.
We are really moving now! 4 block patterns done, and only 3 more to go. Next week, will be an easier block.
If you are stacking your blocks, I bet they are getting higher now. And if you are putting them on a design wall, maybe they look a little something like this? Yeah, you should leave a gap between them like I did (hint, hint).
