Wild Bears - Page 2

Now, to make one flying geese unit, place a Color 2 small square right sides together atop a Color 4 rectangle, with edges aligned. On the back of the top square lightly mark the diagonal. Sew ON this diagonal marking. Cut off the excess seam allowance. Press the remainder towards the center. Repeat this with another Color 2 square on the other end of the rectangle. Make 24 flying geese in the same manner. Sew these together to make four of the units shown at bottom left...

Now lay out all of the units as shown at left, with the extra Color 3  4-1/2" square as the center unit.  Sew three horizontal rows. Join the rows to finish the Wild Bears block!

Here are three blocks by three with simple sashings and a plain border! Alternating blocks are made with the placement of Color 2 and Color 3 reversed.

Happy Quilting!
