Here is block number #19 of the Deli Geese Block Project!
A Deli Geese Project blog follower suggested some blocks names and Sonny and Cher were one of the ideas. I already had this twosome on my list of names and decided this would be a great time to debut them. These fabrics with their large retro flowers are perfect for a set of blocks named after Sonny and Cher!
For a trip down memory lane – I Got You Babe
Top Unit from Light Flying Geese
A – four Top Units from Light Flying Geese units.
B – two pairs* of dark or medium 5″ squares (4 squares total)
C – two 5″ squares background (light)
D – you will use fabric from B
E – four 2 1/4″ squares background
* A “pair” is two squares that are identical
Take two different squares from B and combine them with background fabric C to make Half Square Triangle units that unfinished measure 4 1/2″ following the instructions here.
Cut two 2 1/2″ squares from each of the remaining B 5″ squares.
Sew these to the background triangle of the Half Square Triangle unit with the connecting corner method that can be seen here.
I refer to this unit as the Shaded Half Square Triangle Unit and one of the quilts I use it in is the Market Square Quilt in my Amazing Nickel Quilts book. The Shaded Half Square Triangle unit should measure 4 1/2″ unfinished.
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 !
