Block 11 - Flying Geese

Hello there! 

I can't believe we are on Block 11 of our Modern BOM already!!

This month is an easy one, and I won't be going into much detail as I'm sure most, if not all, of you have had experience with flying geese.

 There are many ways to make flying geese. I basically followed the instructions included for this month, but feel free to construct them using your favourite method. Just make sure they measure up to the correct size so everything will go together smoothly to end with a nice 12.5" unfinished block.

I've decided that all of my geese will be different colours. I cut all of my pieces ahead of time...

When I am doing flying geese that use all different fabrics I like to use my Simple Folded Corners ruler...


I guess the one tip I would have is to press the seams carefully. They are on the bias so could stretch easily and result in wonky flying geese.

Arrange in a pleasing manner, then sew into the three sections...

And there we are...block 11!

Now we only have June's block to sew. I will be including a 13th block in June for those of you who'd like to make a quilt with the blocks set on point. It's a block that I have drafted first original block!

Also in June, I'm excited that we will have a few quilt tops ready to show you which will give you some ideas on fun, original ways to put these blocks together to make a quilt top!

You can find the link to this month's pattern HERE  at the Twilight Guild's blog post. 

Enjoy!....and remember to post your blocks on Instagram using the hashtag #tqgmodernbom so we can all enjoy your block!
