Because I cut my triangles too large, I had to trim off a lot of excess on my flying geese. I used this ruler to trim down my units. I felt the lines on the ruler were very helpful in squaring up my units correctly. I will be using this ruler more frequently. Perhaps that is why this block went together so well.
- Sew the larger dark triangles together to make the center hourglass unit. Square up to 2 1/2" if necessary.
- Sew the units together in rows
I pressed the center row toward the hourglass unit, and the other two rows I pressed toward the larger triangles.
I don't know how big you want your quilt, but if you have been following along with me, you probably have enough blocks for a twin size quilt. If you are going for a queen size quilt, hang in there for more blocks to come.
