Block 8 “Wild Geese”
I made a few changes to construction… rather than making it out of half-square triangles, I opted for fewer seams and made flying geese instead. Because I’m making the smaller 4.5″ finished block size, I figured fewer seams would be helpful.
The first block is made in Love Note. I often use the “Lovey Dot” heart print for the block backgrounds. Which can present a challenge as it’s unidirectional. Sometimes I have to pay attention during cutting, and almost always when I’m piecing and placing prints right-sides together.
The second set is in Flower Pot fabric. These blocks are In the 4.5″ finished size and look a little funky since they aren’t sewn into the quilt-top yet.
