Running a little late today, been busy on my own Wild Goose Chase. This will be the last Wild Goose Chase, and because I have baking in my blood, my grandpa, and great grandpa both owned bakeries and my mom decorated wedding cakes while I was growing up. It seems fitting to leave you with a baker’s dozen when it comes to our Wild Goose Chase blocks. First this one…
Then this one.
For the first block you will need.
6- half square triangles made from 3- 5″ squares of sky fabric and 3- 5″ squares of geese fabric or 6- half square triangles of each cut with your Nifty Notions ruler using 4 1/2″ strips. Instructions for making half squares arehere.
6- 3″ squares
6- 1 1/2″ squares
2 – 2 1/2″ x 12 1/2″ rectangles
Draw a line on each of your 3″ squares.
Place a 3″ square on the corner of a half square triangle with right sides together and sew on line.
Trim seam allowance and press open.
Draw a line diagonally through each of your 1 1/2″ squares and repeat process as you did with the 3″ square.
Sew two of these units together to form flying geese.
Sew your geese together in a row.
Sew the 2 1/2″ x 12 1/2″ strips on either side of your geese row and your block is done. 🙂
For your bonus block you will need.
8- 2 1/2″ geese (instructions here)
4- 2 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ rectangles
4- 2 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ rectangles
Sew a 2 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ rectangle to the top of 4 of the flying geese.
Sew the remaining 4 flying geese to the top of each of these units.
Sew a 2 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ rectangle to the right side of each of these units.
Then arrange them into a pinwheel.
Sew together and enjoy your block.
Hope you have enjoyed our Wild Goose Chase. Let me know when you have finished blocks and/or quilts. I would love to see them.
very nice, thanks for the directions!
I think you should now go bake something yummy. :o)
Do you mean that this is the end of our goose chase? Darn! I love these blocks. Still have to work on last week's block. Hoping for rain so that I can stay in and sew.
I really like that first flying geese block. Nice job!
You are always such a smartie. I love these blocks.
