I’m currently working a quilt using the Duck Duck Goose pattern from Summercrafter Patterns (edited my moi!).
Here are the completed duck and goose blocks. See the ducks with the yellow/white ovals? And the goose on the second row? Those blocks involved piecing with directional fabrics. It’s not difficult to do, but it does require some advance planning on your part.
TOP OF FINISHED BLOCK
(Directional base fabrics should be turned in this direction!)
I often sew in the evenings after a long day at school. I don’t want to think too much about what I’m sewing. This diagram in my sewing notebook helps immensely!
**Goose block cutting changes if using directional fabric for the background**
Cut two (2) 3″ squares of each fabric for the tail feathers instead of the single square listed in the pattern directions.
