Dandelion Parade Step 3

The instructions in this step are for the second block. The block will be 8-1/2″ unfinished or 8″ finished.

Because there are so many ways to make half square triangles and flying geese, I will give no specific instructions for making them.  Using your favorite method, make the following:

  • Using Fabric 5 (dark purple) and Fabric 2 (light/medium yellow), make 4 flying geese per block.  These will be 2-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ unfinished, or 2″ x 4″ finished.  For all 18 blocks, you will need 72 flying geese.
  • Using Fabric 5 (dark purple) and Fabric 2 (light/medium yellow), make 4 half square triangles per block.  These will be 2-1/2″ square unfinished, or 2″ finished.  For all 18 blocks, you will need 72 half square triangles using this combination of fabric.
  • Using Fabric 2 (light/medium yellow), and the variety of medium to light fabrics in the same color family as Fabric 5, make 4 half square triangles per block.  These will be 2-1/2″ square unfinished, or 2″ finished.  For all 18 blocks, you will need 72 half square triangles using this combination of fabric.  I used the same medium purple in each individual block (so that each block had 3 fabrics) but used 6 or 7 different medium purple fabrics throughout the top.

These are the pieces that will go into each block.  There will be four of each for a total of 12 pieces per block.

    I just bought the Flying Geese x4 no math ruler, by Lazy girl. Wonderful for making flying geese, 1/2 sq. triangles and 1/4 sq triangles. It does the math for you.
