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.

You can also find these downloads in my CRAFTSY SHOP.

Since some of you don’t care for the 4 at 1 time flying geese method, I’ve made a PDF that goes over what size pieces you will need to cut to make your flying geese with the 1 at a time method or by using half square triangles. This week we will be making the 3 1/2 x 6 1/2 inch flying geese.

CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD – Flying Geese Cloudy Day Quilt Sampler

Tips for making 4 at 1 time flying geese:
* Go slow when sewing for accurate seams
*Use an accurate scant 1/4 inch seam

* Make sure to read ALL the instructions and look at the diagrams closely
* Finger press your seams open before using your iron
* Press seams without steam if possible (Dry iron)
* When Pressing, press down with out motion. Moving your iron around a lot can distort your flying geese

My fabric’s for Block 1! I usually use yardage for my quilts. I have a bunch of Fat Quarters, so I thought try something different and go scrappy!
