Summer Scrap Elimination 2020: Week 2


Good morning Scrappers!

Welcome to week 2! This week we have some fun with flying geese and some fun settings in two different block options. We're also going to have a video on using a partial seam and a free motion idea for quilting one of your projects!

Cutting for One 16" block:

Cut 6 squares of your chosen color 5 1/4" x 5 1/4"

Cut 8 squares of your chosen color 2 7/8" x 2 7/8"

Cut 2 squares of your background 5 1/4" x 5 1/4"

Cut 24 squares of your background 2 7/8" x 2 7/8"

We are going to be making Flying Geese using the 4 at a time method. These will finish 2" x 4". Now if you have made this version of Flying Geese before, you already know what to do with all of the squares in the cut list, but if you haven't, we're going to walk through the process together.

Ok, quick confession. I made pillows for our couch when my husband and I were first out of undergrad which was 20 years ago and bought our first living room set. We have those same aged pillows on our couch today (different couch thank goodness). Last fall my husband mentioned for the umpteenth time that our pillows were looking a little run down. Trust me friends, he's being kind. They look awful. So I promised to turn at least one of the Summer Scrap Elimination projects into something that would result in new couch pillows to go with the couch we just bought in December.
