Just have a gander at these adorable blocks! I am so in love with these fresh colors. We used 7 fat 16ths of colors and 2 fat eighths of backgrounds (Abacus this time) and there is enough to make 16 flying geese left over. Here is a link for the kit. If you would like the kit it is $10.50. We use my friend Sophie's no waste Flying Geese method the measurements for the pieces (yes, I am doing the math for you :) ) are:
1 - Geese fabric 4 1/4" Square
4 - Background 2 3/8" Square
In the end you will need 176 flying geese so if you work on them steadily as you go you should have them done with your blocks. Or maybe use them as leaders and enders for other projects.
These are so happy... really brightens up my Monday.
Ps. I sewed too. I made these two tote bags. One is my own design from Carolyn Friedlander's new collection coming in December called Carkai with Essex linen in Natural and Cadet.
