April Bee Block - Stephanie

This month we are doing No Waste Flying Geese and half square triangles!

You will use the fabric in your packets to make make strips of geese to finish a table runner for my new dining room that I started ages ago! In your packets you will receive enough to make 5 or 6 strips of 4 geese each, which is the equivalent of a 12" block.  Fabrics are all cut and sorted, and one or two might even be started (lucky you!)

Because the fabrics are pre-cut it is really important that you use this tutorial in order to make sure the sizes match up with whats already done.

Once you get your four geese, sew them all together in a strip, going in the same direction. Lather, rinse, repeat with the rest of your groups of fabric, and you're all done! You will be turning in 5 or 6 strips of geese. With all geese in the strip matching. 

For your second block, you will be making a 12.5" block of any size half square triangles. You may use any scrappy fabrics you want in white, black, gray, mint, and coral. You may use all prints, or prints and solids, any fabric you like in this color scheme, appropriate for a older teenage girl. You can use all of the colors or just a couple, its your call. That is my only criteria for this block, so have at it!

As for a siggy block, you can make anything you want, as long as it is 5.5" and you sign it with a permanent fabric marker (no Sharpies please!). I have no preference what you do and what fabrics you use!

*5 or 6 strips of geese with fabric groups provided, that is the equivalent of 1 block not sewn together
*1 block thats 12.5" of half sq traingles in white, black, gray, mint, and coral
*siggy block - anything 5.5" in any fabrics

If you will be at the Kenan lecture on 5/14 you can turn it into me there. Otherwise turn it in to Lisa at 5/16 meeting, or you can drop it in the mail to me if you won't be at any May events.
