Skill Builder Block 7: Four At A Time Flying Geese

Flying Geese is a block you will come across a lot in quilting and there are various ways to piece them. For Block 7, since they are all the same color, we are going to learn the four-at-a-time method. Those of you who know me, know that I am all about efficient cutting and piecing because I am always anxious to create the next quilt!

Following the cutting directions in the pattern, get your main square and 2 of the smaller squares and place them at opposite corners on top of the main square.

Draw a line from corner to corner and the sew a seam 1/4" inch away from the line on both sides.

When you finish sewing, using your rotary cutter, cut the block in half by cutting on the line.

Separate the two pieces then take your remaining 2 small squares and place them on the bottom corner. Draw a line from corner to corner as in the previous step and sew 1/4" away from the line on both sides.

Using your rotary cutter, cut on the line and separate the pieces. You will end up with 4 units. Press to reveal your 4 flying geese!

Continue assembling your block according to the instructions in the pattern.
