Urban Churn Dash Sew-Along {Flying Geese and 4-Patch Blocks}

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!


Sewing along with the Churn Dash Sew-Along, I've completed the flying geese and 4-patch blocks.  Easy peasy!  I love rainbows and bold colors with black, so my quilt will have an Amish look to it.
There are nine 4-patch blocks and 36 flying geese blocks in all.  The Sew-Along directions say to discard the corners of the flying geese after pressing and trimming the triangles, but since the pieces are so big, I sewed an extra seam and created bonus half-square triangles - that's 72 HSTs that measure somewhere around 4"!  I haven't pressed and measured them yet.  I just might use them in the border to make the quilt bigger.
