I hope you are all enjoying a taste of fall. I love this time of year, snuggling up under a quilt, or better still hand quilting a new one.
This weeks block is called Janet's Star. The first thing you will do is strip piece the two largest triangles together to make a square using colour 1 and 2. Make four of these.
|Piece Half Square Triangles Together|
|Flying Geese Segments|
Attach your Flying Geese segments to the rectangle (colour 3).
|Flying Geese Segment + Rectangle|
When assembling the rectangle to the Flying Geese block, place the rectangle on the bottom. It will slide over the feed dogs easier. If you had the Flying Geese portion on the bottom chances are the seams would get caught on the feed dogs and flip over. If there is any distortion of your Flying Geese block this is your opportunity to resolve it. If you notice the picture below the Flying Geese block is a tiny bit smaller. I was able to shift it a little and still keep my point on the Flying Geese portion.
