February's Block

Hello Everyone,

First let me say that Mary and I did NOT coordinate with one another about our blocks... LOL!  When I saw Mary's come through, I thought "wow everyone is going to be able to do flying geese in their sleep!"

Anyway, this is for me and it is February's block.  

I am sure that you hadn't guessed that I might do something with paper piecing, right?

I did a very intensive tutorial on my blog today about this block, in particular, and how to paper piece it.  You can find the tutorial by clicking here, and it will also remain in my left sidebar under the Tutorial Section entitled Paper Piecing Tutorials.  You can always find it there for future reference.

I will be sending everyone's packets out on Monday.  I am almost done getting them ready.  I will be providing the background fabric and I would love for you to provide the red fabrics.  If you have 12 different reds for 12 different geese that would be fantastic!  I also included the template to cut the red flying geese!  The scrappier the better!  If you need some reds send me an e-mail and I will include some in your packet.

Oh, please do NOT join each individual section together. Each section is 6.5"when trimmed. Just send the 4 sections separately so that I can play!

As you can tell, I kind of like wilder prints.  If you have them great, if not, no worries.

As always, should you have any questions send me an e-mail or call.  Thanks in advance for all your hard work!  

Mary, your blocks are slightly delayed and will be heading out next week!

Until Next Time...


  1. love this new flock of geese. Looks like I could try it.

  2. Looks like fun, Jackie! I am looking forward to doing these! I'll have to see what wild prints I have, and if I don't, it might be fun to go get some. :-) This helps me broaden my stash a little.

  3. More geese - yay!! Can't wait to read your tutorial and start these Jackie!

  4. My packet has arrived and I'm so glad to try these. Paper piecing is getting easier. Looking forward to making more red, this time!!!
