Deli Geese Project – Block #6 – Clark

Here is block number #6 of the Deli Geese Block Project!


6 Clark

This block is Clark, named for Second Lieutenant William Clark one of the leaders of the historic Lewis and Clark Expedition.  While looking up famous twosomes to name these blocks after, I’m having fun brushing up on some history and I have just put on hold through the Minnesota library system, Undaunted Courage  by Stephen E. Ambrose, a 20-CD recorded book about the expedition.  Just think of the quilting I can do while listening to this!

Block #6 Clark uses the Top Units from Dark Flying Geese Units.  Details of making the units are found here.

Top Unit from Dark Flying Geese

Top Unit Dark

Clark uses:

A – four Top Units from Dark Flying Geese units.

B – one 4 1/2″ square

C – four 2 1/2″ squares background (light)

D – four 4 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ rectangles background

E – eight 2 1/2″ squares, added to D with the connecting corner method that can be seen here to form smaller flying geese units.

F – four 2 1/4″ squares

6 Clark

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 !

  1. I have made most of these blocks now but I am missing block one. And two is there any way I can get them with the instructions
    Thank you

    • My blog has it’s own search engine so from any of my blog postings simply look for the “search” in the upper right hand side of the page (in the black bar) and type in what you are looking for. In this case by typing in “block 1” or “deli geese” it will find the blogs that have those search terms in the name. Enjoy! Pat

  2. Thanks for another great block. I really like the plaid look of these blocks. After Christmas, I’m going to drag out my plaids and play!

  3. You so creative & thank you for sharing these. My husband just had the crossword puzzle word “Boris” as in “Boris and Natasha” the cartoon characters. Those two would be good block names!

  4. Just found you and it is like finding a gold mine. Thank you for your generosity. I have one of your books – the one with 40 patterns and I can’t believe how amazing this book is.
