Quiltmaker Block #656


“…when we long for life without … difficulties, remind us that oaks grow strong in contrary winds and diamonds are made under pressure.” ┬áPeter Marshall

I used the Quilt in a Day 2″ finished size mini geese ruler to make the 4 flying geese units. I was pleased with the results.

This block has four corner units that Sally Schneider called Mary’s Triangles. She has a wonderful method for making two of these units at a time.

Creative Grids calls this unit cat’s cradle. With their ruler, CGRHD1, it is easy to accurately make the units in many sizes.

You might want to look back at my May 18 post for block #293 that also uses this unit.
