The School Bell Has Rung Sampler Quilt~Along Part 2

The School Bell Has Rung Sampler 
Quilt~Along started last week but you can jump in anytime!
  
Last week we learn the Magic 8 method and made two blue and white pinwheel blocks for the center of the sampler quilt.  See Quilt~Along Part 1 HERE


Today we are going to make 8 Flying Geese units using the No Waste method. There will be four blue and yellow Flying Geese units and four white and yellow units.


Cut 1 white and 1 blue 7-1/4" square. 
Cut 8 yellow 3-7/8" squares

Draw a diagonal line on the wrong side of each yellow square

Place 2 yellow squares right sides together on the white and blue squares as shown in photo below.

Stitch a 1/4" on both sides of the drawn line connecting the 2 yellow squares.  Do this for both the white and blue fabric squares.

Cut them apart

They will look like this~~

Press each towards the yellow triangles

For each of the units above, place another yellow square right sides together like so....

Stitch on either side of the drawn line for all 4 units.


Cut apart

Press to complete the units.  There will be four of each color set, a total of eight Flying Geese Units measuring 
3-1/2" x 6-1/2".
Set aside your No Waste Flying Geese and stay tune for our next lesson!
