Block 2 – Flying Geese Block (Happy Cloud Quilted Pot Holder Quilt Along)

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.
