Nurture Circle - Do good stitches 2020

We are going to do an easy "block" this month with a bunch of flying geese. To start you can make your flying geese any way you would like. I am showing how to do it with a no waste method. This chart is from blocloc and I find it very helpful even if you don't have the blocloc rulers.



To start you want to cut the following


  • 4 squares of jewel tone/bright pink and purple fabric (7 1/2")
  • 16 squares of low volume creamy/ivory fabric (4 1/8")
  • 4 rectangles of jewel tone/bright pink or purple fabric (6 1/2" x 3 1/2") *not pictured





Once you have your fabric cut you want to draw a line on the back of each of your cream colored low volume fabric squares.


Now you will sew two low volume squares on the diagonal of a pink or purple block. Place your blocks right sides together. You will sew 1/4" from each side of the diagonal line.


Once you have your squares sewn together you will cut along the diagonal line.


Now iron the white fabric away from the darker fabric leaving you with some "hearts" . There is your valentines day surprise!!!


Now you will sew another white square to each of your hearts on both sides of the drawn line.


Now cut the hearts apart and iron your second wing away from the dark fabric. 


Once you have all your 16 flying geese you want to trim down to 6 1/2" x 3 1/2". Make sure to line up the 45 degree angle of your pink/purple triangle to keep your geese square.

Finally select two pairs of matching geese and one pink/purple rectangle and sew together in the layout below. 



Please make 4 of the units. They should finish at 15 1/2" x 3 1/2"
