Deli Geese Project – Block #31 – Spring Forward

Here is block number #31 of the Deli Geese Block Project!

Spring Forward

31 Spring Forward

How many forgot it was daylight savings time today and we needed to move our clocks ahead?  I sure did, and I’m thankful for my cell phone and my computer that do it automatically.  This of course brought to mind immediately the phrase that reminds us which way the clocks need to go, “Spring Forward and Fall Back”.  I believe that’s a “Twosome”, and yes I am naming the next block Fall Back.

Block #31 Spring Forward, uses the Top Units from Light Flying Geese Units.  Details of making the units are found here.

Top Unit from Light Flying Geese

Top Light unit

Spring Forward uses:
A – four Top Units from Light Flying Geese units.
B – two 5″ squares cut in half on the diagonal
C – 2 3/8″ squares, 4 that are dark or medium and 5 that are light (background)
D – 2 1/4″ squares  background
After sewing the corner triangles to the nine patch square up to 8 1/2″.

31 Spring Forward

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 !
