Welcome to Week 7 of the Aloha Ripple Quilt Along!! This week we will be making our last blocks! Can you believe it! This quilt along is going so fast!
We will be making 4 Stacked Flying Geese blocks. 2 of them will have 5 flying geese in them and 2 of them will have 6 flying geese in them.
Making your Stacked Flying Geese block:
First I like to layout all my flying geese in the correct order. Then I like to sew two flying geese together at a time, until you sew the whole row together. Make sure to press your flying geese block according to the arrows on the pattern! This will ensure that your seams nest when you go to sew all your blocks together next week.
2 of these blocks will have an additional flying geese sewn to the top! These blocks will go together super quickly!
If you have any questions, make sure to join me for my LIVE VIDEO. Tomorrow (Wednesday Feb. 21st) at 10:15 am PST (West Coast USA) I will be filming a LIVE video in the Facebook Group to go over tips and answer any questions.
Make sure to share a photo of this weeks step on social media with the hashtag #AlohaRippleQAL or join the Facebook Group and post a photo of your stacked Flying Geese blocks!
