Week One - Scrap Sampler QAL

This week we're jumping straight in and making blocks!
If you haven't gotten your copy of the pattern yet you can snag one here

The pattern is designed to use the biggest scraps first (so you can use the offcuts later in the quilt if needed - and to make sure you don't cut down those big chunks too soon!) 

Which means.... We're making the Geese this week!

Since I let my son colour in my sheet mine are going to occasionally look slightly different than that pattern version - he wanted to be silly & switch the background on a few blocks. 
I asked him to help, so I'll follow along as closely as I can to his design!  

If making the Baby Quilt you'll need one block
If making the Throw Quilt you'll need three blocks
If making the Bed Quilt you'll need nine blocks
If you're making a different size, refer to your diagrams!

The pattern includes two ways of making the geese - 4 at a time & the traditional method. 
I stitched an extra seam before cutting off the extras on mine (I used the traditional method) and now I have a dozen Half Square Triangles to play with!
I could trim them down & use them in the small HST block in the quilt, but I'll most likely incorporate them in to the back or set them aside for another project.


 Post a picture of your finished flying geese on Instagram with the hashtag #ScrapSamplerQuilt to be eligible for this weeks prize - which is a mystery scrap bag that I've been slowly filling up 🥳
It will not have anything under 1 1/2" & may contain cuts up to a fat eighth. 
Open worldwide to anyone over the age of 18.
