Here is block number #18 of the Deli Geese Block Project!
Block #18 Dumbledore, uses the Top Units from Dark Flying Geese units. Details of making the units are found here.
Top Unit from Dark Flying Geese
A – four Top Units from Dark Flying Geese units.
B – two 5″ squares cut in half on the diagonal*
C – four 2 1/2″ squares
D – eight 2 1/2″ half square triangles of background fabric (light) cut from a 2 1/2″ strip using an Easy Angle ruler (see picture below).
E – four 2 1/4″ squares
This block will measure 12″ at this point and finish 11 1/2″.
Cutting off the 2 1/2″ half-square-triangles from a strip of fabric.
* Technically you should be able to cut a 4 7/8″ square in half on the diagonal for this unit and you will end up with the correct unit size of 4 1/2″ square unfinished. I prefer to just cut the 5″ square in half on the diagonal and square up after the unit has been sewn together. This is how I position the unit and ruler for trimming since you should only have to trim away from the larger triangle.
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 !
