So, Stitch Tease Bee Mates:
This is what we're going to make this month. Let's just pretend all these flying geese are all joined together nice and pretty for one giant block that will finish at 15" x 20". It's made of 24 individual flying geese that measure 3" x 5 1/2".
This is our color palette inspiration:
You will need to cut:
24 assorted prints 3 inches x 5 1/2 inches
Magentas and Golds (I would love to stick to only the colors in this palette)
Maybe a couple (no more than 3 please!) Medium gray prints randomly in the mix too!
48 assorted low volume 3 inch squares
White/Off-white with gray - very soft
Draw a line corner to corner on the wrong side of the 3 inch square. (I just mark it with a Hera Marker).
Line up a square on top of the rectangle of fabric that will be your "goose", Right Sides Together. Sew directly on this line and trim 1/4 inch away from line for seam allowance. Press. (Don't throw away those trimmed triangle scraps - they will make a lovely half square triangle for another project! I usually go ahead and sew them up right away so they're already done.)
Repeat on the other side - Sew on the marked line, trim 1/4 inch away and press.
Done! Pay attention to the top of the block - there should be 1/4 inch on top of the triangle's point. This is important so that when the blocks are sewn together, the goose's beak doesn't get chopped off!
Then just arrange the geese in a random layout (geese pointing up in one direction please!).
These come together really quickly and hopefully won't be too much trouble for my bee mates - Thanks y'all!
I can't wait to see this quilt come together! I'm so enjoying being in this group :)
