Ready for Step 2? Today we start sewing, and I’ve put the most time consuming step first.
Using the large 7-1/2-inch background squares, and the indicated amount of 4-inch scraps in the pdf download linked below, make flying geese using the no-waste method. Note you will NOT use all your 4-inch squares. Some of them will be used later. When I have a boring task like this to do, I like to use my lap desk and mark the squares while I watch TV to sew later. If you need the full tutorial on how to sew these, see my post No Waste Flying Geese. That post uses a different size, but the technique is the same.
Chain sew the units, cut apart, and then add the second square. Cut apart and press.
Cut apart and press to the scrappy side.
Square up to 3-1/2 x 6-1/2 inches.
Please do not post photos of the pdf download pages, nor post the actual pdfs anywhere else or email them to anyone. They are provided for your personal use only. If others want them, please link to this post for friends to download their own. I am delighted to see your progress on your blogs and on Facebook, and ask only to please not speculate on the final design, or give any numbers of units in posts on your blog.
