Deli Geese Project – Block #20 – Cher

Here is block number #20 of the Deli Geese Block Project!



Looking back at the Sonny and Cher Show, one of the things I remember was the number of times Cher would change outfits during the show.  I wonder how many people were employed full time just creating and sewing her wardrobe!

Block #20 Cher, uses the Bottom Units from Light Flying Geese Units.  Details of making the units are found here.

Bottom Unit from Light Flying Geese

Bottom Light Unit

Cher uses:
A – four Bottom 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 !

  1. Hi Pat, I have a question about your mystery quilt is that a individual pattern or can that be used for a small quilt group

    • Hello Cindy,
      Thank you for your interest in my mystery patterns. Yes they are individual patterns and for a small group project each person would need to purchase a pattern as they are copyright protected and cannot be reproduced. For larger groups I offer a licensing fee.
