Construction of the eight inch block in the center of Deli Geese Blocks #29 and #30 requires the use of a partial seam. These seams are very easy to do, and not to be confused with set in seams or Y seams.
I first sewed the 2 1/2″ squares to the rectangles.
Take one unit and the center square.
Sew a seam just one half the length of the larger center square, stopping near the position indicated by the arrow.
Press the seam towards the center square. You have just created a new edge where you will sew the next unit to.
Continue your way around the center square adding all four units. Always adding the next unit on to the new edge you just created.
To finish the last seam; start in the middle where the original seam ended and sew towards the edge of the block.
See, that was easy!
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 !
