I’ve said before that I find a lot of ideas for quilts on eBay. Tonight this antique quilt caught my eye.
I looked a little closer to see the block construction.
I drafted a block and set 4 of them together in my TouchDraw app
I’d piece this as a 12 inch finished block (12.5 with seam allowances)
(1) 4.5 inch square
(4) 4.5 inch half square triangles
(8) 2.5 x 4.5 inch flying geese
I’d use my Eleanor Burns flying geese ruler to make 4 geese at a time. It’s my favorite method for making flying geese.
I’m not sure when or if I’ll ever piece this quilt but if I do, I’ll have my ideas all in one place with this blog post.
(FYI – this is what I do at night when I can’t sleep!)
