Description - We will make Flying Geese on the diagonal by adding logs and triangles to a starting square or half square triangle. We will trim the blocks to perfect proportions using the Tucker Trimmer and Wing Clipper tools. After making a few blocks, use the patterns to choose from 9 different layouts and 5 different quilt sizes to make your masterpiece. There are many different possibilities. We will learn techniques for matching corners and diagonal lines when sewing blocks together, and for pressing seams to make the combined blocks lay flat. It's fun to make these blocks and turn them different directions to see how the pattern changes. You will love this creative process.
