Happy Autumn to you! It's time to sew up another part of our Sugar Plums quilt....are you ready?
Here are the fabrics I am using for my quilt.....it's Farmhouse by Figtree of Moda fabrics.
Last week we sewed the first set of flying geese units.
This week we are going to do the second set of flying geese units so turn to page 18 in your Winter Wonderland Book and we will get started sewing!
We will be using C and F.
Diagonally stitch square C to F rectangle. Trim excess fabric from corner, fold back and press.
I like to trim 1/4" away from the stitching line to get an extra half triangle square to use in another future project.
Now for a quick commercial break....I like to use a guide on my machine bed for more accurate piecing. It helps me make sure that I am stitching in a straight line without having to mark each square with a drawn line. My favorite guide is the Clearly Perfect Angles by New Leaf Stitches. It's a cling that just sticks to my machine bed without leaving it sticky. Just wanted to share a favorite notion of mine.....what is your favorite notion?
You will get two extra half triangle squares from each flying geese unit.
Make 24 of these flying geese units.
Next week we get to make some cute pinwheel blocks... I love pinwheels!
