Welcome to the second block of our Happy Cloud Quilted Pot Holder Quilt-a-long!
Block 2 is a block made up of a bunch of Flying geese. When I was new to quilting I was scared of trying to make flying geese. I’m not sure why I was scared of them….I just figured I’d use half square triangles instead because I knew how to make those. Then one day I decided I’d find out how to make the flying geese block and you know what it wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be!
This is a fun block to show of those pretty fabrics. And it does look better not having a seam down the middle of your flying geese. Just remember to READ all the directions in the pattern and it will be easy peasy!
You can go super scrappy on this block and make each Flying geese with different fabric! Like this block I made using different fabrics from the Fresh Market fabric collection by Riley Blake Fabrics.
If you have already downloaded the Quilt-A-Long pattern, the block will now be available in your Craftsy account for download.
If you have not downloaded the Quilt-A-Long pattern yet, you can find it in the first blog post for this quilt along. CLICK HERE
Each Tuesday you will receive an email from Craftsy letting you know the new block is ready to download.
I will be filming a LIVE video in the Facebook group tomorrow (Wednesday Nov. 15th) at 10:15am PST. To share tips and answer any questions. You can also share your progress in our Facebook Group!
I can’t wait to see all of your pretty blocks!! Make sure to post them in the Facebook Group and on Social media you can share using #HCQPotholderQAL
