Flying Geese

I love Flying Geese!

Such a classic block with a modern feel.

This pattern uses a method you may not have used before…. There are lots and lots of different ways to make a flying geese unit.

First they have you make these units. You will need the instructions to get this part done. I call this the Eleanor Burns method because it is where I first learned it and she has a special ruler for trimming them that you will need.

You can get this ruler HERE. They have all the lines for lining it up and is super easy to do. I also love a pattern with a little extra so I can get a perfect unit when I am done.

Here are your two little perfect geese babies!

Have fun with these guys.

Bella Skill Builder…Block 3

Pineapples anyone???

This month we are on Block 3  in the Bella Skill Builder quilt along hosted by Fat Quarter Shop!

This month is the Pineapple Block!

Block 3

I’m not gonna lie…this was a tricky block!

You will use a specialty ruler for this one….

CGRJAW3

Creative Grids Pineapple Trim Tool

Tips…

The key is to make sure you read the instructions thoroughly and use the ruler properly!

I got a little ahead of myself and just kept cutting which = lots of seam ripping.  Go step by step and you should do just fine.

Finger press along the way. I ironed only at the end of each block because there is a lot of seams and it can get wonky fast.

I also used a scant quarter inch seam when stitching these and the blocks came out the perfect size!

Hope you guys are enjoying this quilt… This block definitely pushed me out of the box a little and I did a block I never have before. Yay for quilty me!

Orange Peel

I did a simple top stitch to secure these. A zig zag is also a good option. 

These were fun and super easy! 

Give it a try.
