Flying Wild Geese?? Why Not!
In this class we will explore different methods of construction for the Wild Geese Block, a block that can stand by itself, or it can be part of a larger block, and depending on the coloration one uses, create a look far different than the basic block.
However, this is not the easiest block to create….a slight variation in cutting or stitching, and OUCH!!
This class will make samples only, using several variations of how to stitch them. I will provide a small quilt pattern that you may create if you like.
- Sewing machine in good working order;
- Microtex Needles, size 80
- Cotton Fabric – contrasting – Fat quarters or scraps, (big enough to cut 8” squares, and 4.5” squares)
- “Quilters Magic Wand” by Deb Tucker Or “Quick Quarter” by Quilters Rule (optional, but very Helpful)
- 6”x12” ruler
- Rotary Cutter
- A mechanical Lead Pencil, or good quality lead pencil and pencil sharpener (we need a very sharp point for a very thin line!!)
- Flying Geese Ruler-, Don’t buy one just for this class - If you have one Please bring it and we will discuss how it’s used.
