I was inspired by Yvette's polka dots for her last block. I also learned an important lesson on stripes...
I was sooo focused on getting the stripes straight I completely missed the flying geese. For piecing, I really like the fast flying geese method and it'd be great for this block since there are 4 of each size.
Also, if you're doing stripes, don't get so focused on getting the stripes straight that you forget the golden rule. Right sides together. Twice!
Once again, the cut pieces, ready to go. (Though, if you use the fast flying geese method, your cut pieces will look different)
I pieced the different elements. 2 sets of 4 flying geese. Centre double diamond. 1/2 square triangle blocks. Plus those outer squares (what ever they're called :)
For final assembly all the different elements come together in our familiar friend the nine patch. The smaller nine patch becomes the centre for the larger one.
And here we have our third block done!
