We now have all the blocks made for your sample quilt. You should have a total of 35 blocks made up of 7 different blocks.
This is our last block for this quilt. How have you been doing? We'd really like to hear your comments. This week's block is Double Monkey Wrench. It is made up of several units we have used before. Half square triangles and strip blocks.
This week is we are taking a look at the flying geese block. This is another block that can be made a number of ways. You can use the half square triangle method used for our Friendship Star block (by making two squares and joining them together) or you can use the Flip Corner method or you can use foundation piecing method. Since we have already learned the first two methods, let's take a look at foundation piecing. You can use either of the other methods if you choose or try this instead.
This week's block is the very popular log cabin block. This is often the first block new quilters make. Log cabin can be made in several ways. I'm going to show you strip piecing for this block. Others may prefer foundation piecing.
For this block you will be making half square triangles. What are half square triangles? A half square triangle is a square that is made up of two triangles of different fabrics. It has a seam diagonally throught the middle. You can see FOUR in our Friendship Star block.
This week’s block isn't a standard block, but one made to fit our design. It’s a technique you will be learning which can be used in many common blocks. I refer to it as the flip-block.
