FLYING GEESE quilt blocks!  How many patterns do you see that have Flying Geese components?  Yet you may steer away from them based on past experiences.  Too big, too small, too much frustration?

Come join Leianne McCallum from Quilters Cupboard on March 19th for a Zoom class, and learn how to create this versatile block the WING CLIPPER Way!

Grab your WING CLIPPER tool by Studio 180 Design, a few fat quarters of your favourite colours, some background fabric, and you’ll be amazed at how much easier it can be to make this block.  Less stress, multiple size options on just 1 tool, and so many ideas that you’ll be re-thinking every pattern you look at going forward.  Leianne will walk you through cutting and trimming for perfect Flying Geese blocks. 

But Wait, There’s More!  Learn how to use your Wing Clipper for even more ideas, with the Pickets and Quickets Technique Sheet by Studio 180 Design.  The “picket fence” style block is fun to make, and great for borders, sashing, and framing ideas too.  Scrappy or controlled, large or small, it uses the same Wing Clipper tool for precision and success!

Then, as a bonus, Leianne will share the Migrating Geese Technique Sheet method of making geese that zig / zag their way along in whatever size you like.  There is a Technique Sheet, also by Studio 180 Design, for sizing and instructions, yet these beauties do not require a specialty ruler.  You’ll be amazed at the ideas for this block as well.
