**This tutorial contains chain piecing techniques to make multiple blocks.**
This tutorial will teach you how to make one Flying Geese block. By sewing two extra seams, you will end up with one Flying Geese block and two Half Square Triangle blocks. This allows you to use every bit of your fabric, and can provide enough blocks for a border or 2nd project. :cD
You will need two contrasting fabrics. In this case, I have cream geese with green and red backgrounds.
For each 2”x 4” finished block, cut:
• One 2.5”x 4.5” rectangle – this will become your “goose”
• Two 2.5” squares – background fabric
2. Measure a ½” from the diagonal line, and draw another line parallel to it on one side. These lines will be stitching lines.
6. Next, sew along the second line you drew on the square. You will have two seams ½” apart. To chain piece, continuously feed the units through your machine, but this time alternate the units so they fit closely together. Your chain will look a little like a braid (see picture). Once again, cut any chained blocks apart afterwards.
Happy Geese Sewing!
