This week you can use Strip piecing for your corner blocks if you don’t want to cut out a bunch of 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 inch squares. I will go over this in the LIVE Video today (Oct 9th).

Strip Piecing: Cut out 2 – 2 1/2 x width of fabric strips. Then sew the two strips together. Press your seam to the darker fabric. Then Sub cut 2 1/2 inch wide strips from this long strip unit. The pieces will end up 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches.

Aloha Ripple QAL – Week 7: Stacked Flying Geese Blocks

IMG_5434 (2)

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!
