The Florence Block- we will be making 8 of these
To make the Florence blocks, there are PDF directions below but, in addition, here are a few of the tips that I use when piecing these blocks.
We are making quite a few stitch and flip geese this week. You can google how to or watch a video on YouTube if you aren't familiar with this method. And, you can also read my tips from last week on the flying geese- here.
Here are the photos on how to make the small stitch and flip corners in case you need them-
Gather 1- 5 1/2" blue square and 1- 2" white square
Sew from the top left corner of the white square to the bottom right corner of the white square.
Trim away the excess, leaving 1/4" seam allowance.
Press open carefully so as not to distort the corner.
That's it for today! Next week, we have an easy week. It is a catch up week and we will also cut the setting triangles (if you haven't already).
