Due at the First meeting in June
Measure twice cut once.
This block measures 12 ½ inches unfinished.
Keep the color monochromatic to one of your favorite pastel choices. Choose a mix of dark, medium, and light colors. All blues, purples, pinks, yellows, etc.
Cut 24 2 ½ inch blocks of dark, medium and light of your color choice. Arrange them to make a piece with 6 rows of 4 squares each stitching them together to make a block 8 ½ by 12 ½.
Set aside and make the flying geese blocks.
Cut 6 rectangles for the geese part of the flying geese block either a dark or light color choice 2 ½ by 4 ½.
Cut 12 squares for the corners of the flying geese blocks 2 ½ inches (light if you chose dark for the geese or dark if you chose light for the geese.)
Sew the newly made flying geese blocks together in a strip of 6 geese measuring 4 ½ by 12 ½
Sew the two components together with the geese strip on the right side of the first block set you made using the 2 ½ squares
You can find images of this block on Pinterest. Just type in Geese Migration block in the search.
