Urban Churndash- A Simple Sew-Along - Sewing the Flying Geese

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.
