Please note: It seems that the flying geese in January's block of the month have not been behaving themselves. We published an early version of the instructions which stated a smaller version of the squares used to create the geese and these measurents are incorrect. Barbara's updated and correct version of the cutting instructions is as follows:
Large block (colourful square): 4 1/4in
Small block (white) 2 3/8in
This should give you sets of geese that fit perfectly around the 6.5 inch centre block. It is possible to complete the block with the smaller geese but you will need to add some extra geese and background fabric around the border. Thank you for your patience and for those of you that have managed to complete the block with some ingenuity and adjustment - well done! If you run into any difficulty working through the new instructions please drop us a line and we'd be happy to help.
You may wish to appliqué the centre square before constructing the Flying Geese. A floral design might be more to your taste – or even more bugs! I was in a light-hearted mood when designing the blocks.
