I have had my children home this week so I haven’t done much other than feed them and clean (after a fashion – anyone who knows me knows I don’t understand the concept of cleaning, life’s too short) but here is this weeks quilt idea.
A few flying geese mixed with rectangles and squares, so is easy to make and could utilise part of a jelly roll with backing and could be made larger using more of the jelly roll.
The quilt is 68″ square; the block measures 16″ square; sashing is 2″ wide and therefore would need to be cut 2 1/2″ wide with 2 1/2″ square setting squares. The first border measures 2″ wide again cut 2 1/2″ strips with the second border measuring 4″ (cut 4 1/2″).
It is very easy to change the size of this block should you wish, it is based on an 8 grid but making it 16 inches would make good use of those 2 1/2″ strips, it could also be made from any scraps left after other projects just with the addition of a back ground fabric to link it together.
Finally a show reminder.
