Two down, five to go for the Project QUILTING Mystery Quilt Along! We’ll learn how to make flying geese blocks today.
Each day for the next week I’ll be posting a new clue at noon CST. By the end of the week you’ll have all the clues needed to create a cute little mini quilt that will inspire you through the 11th season of Project QUILTING.
I have decided to choose fabrics that have somewhat of a “stripe” to them. They don’t have to be a super obvious stripes but I think once this is all put together you’ll understand why I chose to use these fabrics. Also, at this point try to choose fabrics that have approximately the same value as your first two blocks. So if your first blocks are reading “light” then stick with that for this block, if they’re reading “dark” stick with that as well.
Fabric E (snails):
(7) 2.5″ x 4.5″ rectangles
Fabric F (red):
(14) 2.5″ x 2.5″squares
Make seven flying geese blocks.
On the wrong side of a Fabric F square draw a diagonal line. Stitch directly on the drawn line.
Trim outside the stitched line.
Press towards Fabric F.
Draw a diagonal line on the wrong side of another Fabric F square. Stitch right on the drawn line. Trim to the outside and press towards Fabric F.
Repeat and make seven flying geese blocks.
Stitch the seven blocks together in a line to make the 3rd block of this mystery quilt. The block should measure 4.5″ x 14.5″.
That is it for Clue #3! Be sure to post your progress on instagram and tag me @persimondreams and use the hashtag #PQMysteryQAL2
