I chose blocks that fit into the 6 - 9 - 12 inch pattern, and I left poor Sunbonnet Sue for another day. I discovered that I needed one more 9 inch block to finish the quilt so I opted for an old favourite.
I disassembled my Whirligig block that I decided not to use. It was all half square triangles so I rearranged it into a Dutchman's Puzzle.
It will work a little better with Flying Geese to start with and can also be made in three colours - make the center geese one main colour and the outside geese a contrasting colour.
A - 2 dark 5.75 inch squares. Cut diagonally twice to make 8 triangles.
B - 8 light 3.25 inch squares. Cut diagonally to make 16 triangles.
Trim each flying goose block to 2.75" x 5".
Block measures 9.5 inches.
I made a few more flying geese blocks, this time with real geese.
So ... next post, the big reveal! I do hope you like the end result.
