Blocks That Teach

Flying Geese Calculations

In each series listed below, you will learn a number of basic quilting skills while making an individual block.  These blocks can help you ease into quilting as you work on just a few skill sets within each block.  You’ll also be given a heads up about what problems may occur and how to avoid them in the “What Went Wrong With My Block?” video.

These blocks can be used for small projects (potholder, pillow top, etc.), the One Block Quilt or just as practice squares.  If you really like the pattern, you could repeat the block to make a whole quilt, a pieced border, or add it to a sampler quilt.

Hope you decide to use one of these blocks in your next project!
