Flying Geese Block
Flying Geese Block

This is the last of the basic units. With these six units you can make just about any block designed. We're going to make a double goose you will need 2 fabrics: a background and the geese fabric. They should contrast so that the geese are very defined. We will be making this one 6" finished.

Sample Quilt Layouts

Cut as follows:
Fabric Cutting Information
Background Cut 4 3-1/2" squares
Geese Cut 2 3-1/2"x6-1/2" rectangles

Sewing Instructions:

  1. Mark the diagonal on the wrong side of the 3-1/2" squares of Background fabric.
  2. Match a 3-1/2" square to one end of each of the Geese rectangles as shown...stitch one thread to the corner side of the diagonal open toward corner.
  3. Repeat step#2 with other corner...stitching in direction shown.
  4. Turn the rectangle unit over so that the WRONG side is up...square up to 3-1/2"x6-1/2" using the original rectangle as your base and trimming the added corners as needed.
  5. Attach units together as seam toward flat end of goose.
  6. IMPORTANT: Please square up your finished block to be sure it is 6-1/2". If it is larger or smaller, check your seams and redo if necessary. If you do not check your measurements, your block may not join properly with other blocks easily to create a finished quilt.
