Proposed Quilt Block (16” finished)
The sample was made with white and blue fabrics, using the sew-and-flip method. To make the “chevrons”, you will need blocks that alternate the color of the goose. One block will have a goose the color of the background (white) with a sky of the main color (blue). The alternate block will have a goose in the main color (blue) and background (white) sky.
