3-D Flying Geese Quilt Block

I love this block. ¬†It looks harder than it is….which makes you look like a professional quilter ūüôā

The seam in the center is hidden behind the flying geese part, making it an illusion.

3-D Flying Geese Quilt Block Tutorial~

1)  Fold the rectangle in half and finger press

2) ¬†Place this folded rectangle in between the two background squares- lining up the raw edge. ¬†The fold will be just beyond 1/4″ from one edge of the background squares

3)  Sew along the side

4) ¬†Open the block –notice that the fold is at the top and one side is caught in the seam

5)  Pull the sides to the corners of the squares

7) ¬†Using glue- {I use Fabric Fuse by Thermoweb— LOVE this stuff!}– ¬†put a couple of dots down to make the flying geese from shifting out of it’s spot. ¬†This will replace using pins. ¬†So handy!

8)  Repeat this process for as many 3-d Flying Geese quilt blocks you need.

The 3-d part of the block is on the angle on either side of the center seam.
