QUBE sampler QAL block 11

sampler6b

Here is the block of the week, block #11

This block is kind of funky and modern, don’t you think?

It’s a rather easy block to make and uses two fabrics, this time I did NOT use the white that I try to put in all the blocks, but every once in a while it’s ok NOT to use it Smile

The first color A, cut out (4) of shape #4 and (4) of shape #5

Then color B, cut out (4) of shape #3 and (4) of shape #5

Then start by making 2 flying geese from shape #4 and shape #5

Then add the remaining shape #4 above and shape #5 to the sides

and lastly add the larger #3 triangles to the sides to make two large geese (so I guess these blocks are geese inside geese!)

I love how the triangles match up perfectly!

And sew the block together.

Here’s the 8” block
