This block is created with Flying geese units and Sallieann guides you through the various steps to create your perfect patchwork.
TASTER: Beginner Patchwork Sampler quilt series with Sallieann Harrison – Block 4 Dutchman’s Puzzle
Using the Stitch n Flip method of construction means that you have a very accurate method for sewing these units.
Salliann also has a great little tip to sew two at a go. This means that you can chain piece (a method that your machine will love as it can continue to sew and you also save thread).
You need to make 8 units, which are then sewn into pairs. Sallieann warns you to be aware of baggy bottoms!
Flying geese are often used in borders, so you can tuck this technique under your belt for your next quilt.
