This easy block uses just squares and rectangles to create a design that alternates light and dark fabrics for a delightful quilt. While the units can be made like a typical Nine Patch block, I've chosen to eliminate some seams by using rectangles in place of some of the squares.
The Chicago Geese block is easy and quick to sew together. It's sort of Log Cabin, sort of Flying Geese, and looks very similar to the Wild Goose Chase block. Traditionally, it's made with a background and two colors but...you know me, I had to add more fabrics to the mix!
The Crown of Thorns quilt block is an easy block that creates a lovely quilt. Traditionally it is make with only a light and dark (or medium) color but it looks beautiful with more colors and even scrappy!
