Deli Geese Project – Block #4 – Shirley

Here is block #4 of the Deli Geese Block Project!


4 Shirley

Yes, it has occurred to me that there will be some people reading this blog post who have no idea who Laverne and Shirley are, but luckily the majority of my blog and Facebook followers are in my same age group!  For those to young to know, Laverne and Shirley was a hit sitcom from 1976 through 1983 featuring two single gals sharing an apartment and working in a brewery in Milwaukee, WI.   For those who would like a trip down memory lane this YouTube link is the opening theme song.

Block #4 Shirley uses the Bottom Units from Light Flying Geese Units.  Details of making those units are found here.

Bottom Light Unit

Shirley uses:

A – four Bottom Units from Light Flying Geese units

B – one 4 1/2″ square background (light) fabric

C – four 2 1/2″ squares background

D – eight 2 1/2″ squares, I cut these from 2 different 5″ squares

E – four 2 1/4″ squares background

4 Shirley

This block will measure 12″ at this point and finish 11 1/2″

This block as well as many others in the Deli Geese Block Project uses 5″ squares.  It’s a great block for charm packs, layer cakes, and of course stash fabrics.

Deli Geese, because they’re sliced!
