#jensfillerblocks Flying Geese Star

It has been very well established that I LOVE a star block. I wanted a way to make a different star block than a sawtooth star and found some inspiration from some swap blocks I saw on instagram. I first made the super scrappy version on the bottom and decided I wanted to try out some different fabric placements to show how different it can look depending on your choices. It is such a simple block you’ll be making 3 of your own in no time. 🙂 The cutting instructions are for the black striped block so adjust accordingly depending on your plan.

(8) 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ print

(1) 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ white

(8) 2″ x 2″ white

Set aside (4) 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ print for the corners of the block. Paying close attention to direction of fabric, use the flying geese technique to “star” off one complete edge of the remaining (4) 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ print. Lay out your block, assemble in rows. Press the top and bottom rows toward the print and the middle row toward the center. Sew the rows together and enjoy your fast, fun, Flying Geese Star block.
