How to make a Flying Geese Quilt Block.  DIY Sewing Tutorial.

Flying Geese Quilt Block Tutorial

A little background about the flying goose block: the "goose" is the big triangle in the middle. They "sky" pieces are the two little triangles on the sides of the goose. When you put them all in a line, you can see how this traditional block got it's name, can't you?

Fabrics you will need for the block:

  • Geese: Eight 3 1/2" x 6 1/2"
  • Sky: Sixteen 3 1/2" x 3 1/2"

    Fabrics you will need for the block:

  • Geese: Eight 3 1/2" x 6 1/2"
  • Sky: Sixteen 3 1/2" x 3 1/2"

Fabrics you will need for the block:

Geese: Eight 3 1/2" x 6 1/2"
Sky: Sixteen 3 1/2" x 3 1/2"

Start by drawing diagonal lines on the wrong sides of the sixteen 3 1/2" squares.

With right sides together (RST), place the marked square on one corner of a 3 1/2" x 6 1/2" goose piece. Stitch ON the line. *Note here: Actually, if you stitch just one thread width off the line (toward the corner), it will give you just a teeny bit extra room for when we flip and press the piece back.

Trim corner off 1/4" from the stitching line.

Press toward the center.

Place another 3 1/2" marked sky square on the opposite side of the goose piece. Stitch on the line (or a thread off toward the corner.)

Trim the other corner off 1/4" from the stitching line.

Press toward the corner.

Repeat to make 8 flying geese. Aren't they pretty? Arrange the geese as desired in two columns of 4.

Stitch 4 blocks together to make 2 columns.

Press both columns. *You will probably find it easiest to press to the side that has no seams in the middle. It will reduce bulk.

Stitch columns together making sure that seams butt-up against each other.

Final press. Doesn't matter which side you press it to at this point.

What if you change the "geese" to light fabrics and the sky to dark?
