Laura Stone Roberts | Runtime (32 min)

 

Glorieta’s B blocks comprise a border around the center A block which was discussed in lesson 3. The B Blocks are also star blocks, though they’re less complicated than the A blocks. Host Laura Roberts demonstrates how to make the flying geese units with triangle patches, making sure the sky part of the flying geese units is oriented in such a way that the print all goes in the same direction. She gives tips for working with the bias edges in these units, shows how to mark and use the match points to piece them accurately, and demonstrates how to complete the full blocks. Plus, learn tips about how to load thread into your sewing machine for best results.
