Welcome to Block 4 of the Barn Quilt BOM Quilt Along! I am making the mini quilts using the Barn Quilt Pattern by Sherry Shish of Powered by Quilting.
If you have been following along, you probably recognize that the four corner blocks of the mini quilt as last month's Block 3. Block 4 is the center and middle Flying Geese. The Flying Geese pieces in each of the four colors are shown in the photo below.
As usual, I cut the pieces using my Accuquilt cutter and dies. This means that my construction is a little different form the pattern. Pieces and completed Flying Geese in five different fabrics are shown below.
By the way, Accuquilt is having some great sales this week. If you have been thinking about buying a cutter or additional dies, this is a great time. My affiliate link is Accuquilt. If you use this link and purchase Accuquilt products, I receive a small commision, but it does not change the amount you pay. Thank you for your support!
The photos below show the process of making the Flying Geese using the Accuquilt cut pieces. You need to make four Flying Geese in each of the five fabrics.
Sew five Flying Geese in a row as shown. You will need a total of 4 rows with the fabrics in the same order.
The center block construction is shown in the photos below. The seams were pressed away from the center.
The final step is to sew the Flying Geese and center block to the four Block 3 that were made last month. See photo.
Note that I made all of the Block 3 blocks identical because I am making the mini quilt and I want it to be symmetrical. You will need four of these completed blocks if you are making the quilt. Please see the pattern for instructions.
The completed mini quilt top is shown below. I haven't decided how to quilt it yet. Any suggestions?
