Cappuccino's and Quilts- Wood Trails Mini Quilt Tutorial

Hi Sewing Friends, 

I know it's not quite hot chocolate weather but October's AGFcolorfun color of the month has me feeling all warm and tingly inside! This months color is Cappuccino! This warm, woodsy color was such a refreshing shade to work with. I am used to using a lot of color and tend to shy away from neutral fabrics but after designing the Wood Trails mini quilt I am all about it! The Wood Trails mini measures out to be 16" x 16" and would make perfect throw pillows for the holiday season ahead.

Step 1: Flying Geese Using the No Waste Method

Take a 5 1/4” x 5 1/4” square from Fabric A and four (4) 2 7/8” x 2 7/8” squares from Fabric H. These are the pieces you will need to create four flying geese units.
Draw a diagonal lines using a pencil or a water soluble pen on the wrong side of the fabric on each 2 7/8”x 2 7/8” square from Fabric H.

 Place two (2) 2 7/8” x 2 7/8” squares at each corner of your 5 1/4” x 5 1/4” square from Fabric A. Make sure right sides are together and the diagonal lines match up to make a straight line.

 Sew 1/4” from the diagonal line on each side of the line. Cut piece on the diagonal line you marked. You will now have two pieces that look like the picture below.

 Press open and trim your flying geese to 2 1/2" x 4 1/2". Repeat this process with your remaining 5 1/4" squares and 2 7/8" squares to get eight (8) A/H, eight (8) C/H, and four (4) H/B flying geese! Sew all your flying geese together following the block design.
