Flying Geese Block tips

  • Buy the Quilt in a Day: Flying Geese Ruler. I don't always buy the speciality ruler, but this ruler will give you perfect blocks! Plus you will want to make I bought both sizes :)
  • Iron after each step before trimming.
  • Follow the FQS pattern. It give ironing and trimming instructions so your blocks will be perfect!
