June Mini Madness: Block 28 Kings Crown

Well, here we are at the end of four weeks of mini blocks!  Just two more and you'll have 30 blocks finished and can put them together into a cute mini quilt!  Today's block is a little bit simpler, and I'll show you a different way to sew Flying Geese units.
As always, let's start with cutting out our pieces:

For 3 inch block cut one 2 ¾ inch square of red, one 2 inch square and four 1 5/8 inch squares of background and four 1 ¼ inch squares of blue.

For 6 inch block cut one 4 ¼ inch square of red, one 3 ½ inch square and four 2 3/8 inch squares of background and four 2 inch squares of blue.

Draw a diagonal line on the back of the four background squares.  Place them on opposite corners of your red square and stitch 1/4 inch from each side of the line.  Cut on drawn line and press white triangles out.

Place remaining white squares on the corner of the two sewn units and sew 1/4 inch on each side of the line.  Cut and press.  Trim resulting geese to 1 1/4 x 2 inches for 3 inch block and 2 x 3 1/2 for 6 inch block.

Lay out your pieces and assemble your block.  Note that the Geese on this block meet to form a square in the center of the block.
Looking good!  I hope you are ready for the two final blocks!  

This week I have some pretty green and purple fabric to give away!  These are all lovely Island Batik fabrics, mostly fat quarters, so plenty of fabric to make something fun for you.  Let's see those blocks on facebook - it's such a treat to see the blocks piling up and looking good!
Have a wonderful day!
