Introducing our Building Block series!
Classic Quilt Blocks have been sewn for centuries, are easy to recognize and are every quilters favorite.
Are you ready to level up your quilting game? First up, the Flying Geese block.
The classic Flying Geese block has been linked as far back as the Underground Railroad. A Flying Geese quilt hung outside the home was code for slaves to follow the geese to Canada and to freedom. It's also believed that the direction of the arrows indicated where runaway slaves could find water, food and shelter.
Today this block is used in both traditional quilts and modern quilts. Join Kerin, and she'll show you her favorite method of constructing this block using a chain piecing method (make 4 at a time!) as well as the perfect tool, Bloc-loc ruler for Flying Geese.
Come for the demo, bring your machine and some fabric and let's make some Flying Geese!
To make 4 Flying Geese blocks, you will need (1) 9" square of one fabric (the goose) and (4) 5" squares of another fabric (the sky). Feel free to bring multiples of that! Kerin will share inspirational photos of how to use this classic quilting block.
