This block has four Flying Geese units in it . I decided to use the 3 D Flying Geese Method, that Amanda, The Patchsmith , has made directions for! I understand them when she writes them up! In the past, I have had "issues" making flying geese the correct size. Happily, they are turning out the correct size when I use Amanda's directions! Yay!
And here is a picture of all 12 blocks!

I like how they turned out! They are 12 inch finished blocks. Now, I'll be figuring out if I want to have strips between the blocks, and if so , what fabric to use... I think I'll make the backing pieced in some way... Stay tuned for the final quilt!
