Deli Geese Project – Block #8 – Dancer

Here is block number #8 of the Deli Geese Block Project!


8 Dancer

This block, which I have made out of Christmas fabrics is Dancer, named after one Santa’s eight reindeer. I always loved watching the TV special as a child. Here is a link to part two of the show.

I am having fun making these blocks and what I am looking forward to is seeing quilts made from some of the blocks in this Deli Geese Block Project! So who is going to be the first person who emails me a photo of a quilt?

Block #8 Dancer uses the Bottom Units from Light Flying Geese units.  Details of making the units are found here.

Bottom Light Unit

Dancer uses:

A – four Bottom Units from Light Flying Geese units.

B – four 2 1/2″  x 4 1/2″ rectangles

C – four 2 1/2″ x  4 1/2″ rectangles background (light)

D – four 2 1/2″ squares, added to C with the connecting corner method that can be seen here.

E – four 2 1/4″ squares  background

8 Dancer

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 REALLY like this series. I wish I could make them right now! I have to wait until the start of the year, so I can wrap up all my 2013 projects. The blocks are fabulous, and I hope there are more pairs coming.
