Scrappy Flying Geese Tutorial. Here is the tutorial I promised for the scrappy flying geese blocks. They are so much fun to make and add interest and a scrappy look to a traditional favorite!
You will need:
solid fabric for the base of your blocks ( I suggest a lighter color)
contrasting strips ( I will give you the cutting instructions as we go along....)
Begin by cutting your solid base pieces. for my sample I am cutting 2 1/2 inch high by 4 1/2 inch wide base blocks. This will be the size you will use in making a finished 12 inch block.
Now cut your strips. for this block cut strips 3/4 inch wide. cut an assortment of strips to make your blocks as scrappy as possible. Cut a few strips that are 1 1/4 inch wide. You will use these to finish your corners and eliminate bulky seams close to the corners of the block. These strips can be short. You can even use small scraps to fill this last section.
