MYSTERY QUILT CUTTING INSTRUCTIONS!
I have a quilt show that I will be working the rest of this week and I will be back on Wednesday, March 23, with how to put it together. Have fun cutting. See you soon!
Are we up for a challenge? I am using Nancy Cabot’s Geese in Flight pattern, an antique pattern from 1933, and there are no written instructions available, at least that I can find, but I believe we can make it work with a little playing with what we have. I did not realize that until after I had cut my pieces but using the grid that I have available, but I know that we can figure out the puzzle. Please, if you find a mistake or have an idea, let me and the group know! For those who have Block Base by EQ, you can find the pattern under Flying Geese or #4127. Make sure that you have it set for 12 inches.
Okay, now that we have our pieces cut, it is important to keep the groups in order as this block is a little tricky and you will be using all the colors in one block. I forgot to put my yellow in the picture, so you have 6 colors. There are 12 blocks in total, but let’s just do one for now to make sure that it works. While you get the groups in order, I will be setting up. Be back at 11 a.m.
Sorry it took so long to get back, I had to babysit for a little while.
Anyway, here is how the first section of the block should look. I still have to sew it together. The rest is how the block progresses. It is a 12 x 12 inch block. I love the way it looks! Hope you enjoy it. Will post later this evening after I get it sewn together!
