It's time, are you ready to start sewing your Urban Churndash quilt blocks. We're going to start with the flying geese units. You will be making four flying geese per block, making a total of 36 flying geese.
For each block you will need;
4- 4 1/2"x8 1/2" blue (or print) strips
8- 4 1/2"x4 1/2" white squares
8- 4 1/2"x8 1/2" strips
You should have already drawn a line from corner to corner on all of your white 4 1/2" squares, if you haven't you can do that now.
Place one white 4 1/2" square on the right side of the print 4 1/2"x8 1/2" strip. Sew along your drawn line, diagonal from corner to corner.
Trim 1/4" from your stitch line, discard excess fabric.
Press the block, press toward the white background fabric.
Place a 4 1/2" white square on the left side of the 4 1/2"x8 1/2" strip. Sew along your draw line, diagonal from corner to corner. Repeat the steps from above, trim 1/4" from stitch line, discard excess fabric, press block toward the white background fabric.
Repeat this process on all 36 flying geese units.
Now you will take your white 4 1/2"x8 1/2" units and sew those to the bottom of the flying geese units, repeat on all 36 flying geese. Put these aside. We will sew with them again in a couple weeks.
I hope you're still having as much fun as I. I'm sharing my progress on Facebook & Instagram using #urbanchurndashsewalong. I hope you'll join in with me.
