“Options” #4 for BOM QAL

Wishing you a delightful May 1st, full of flowers and sunshine! If you are keeping up with the “Options” block of the month quilt along, I bet you have been wondering what block #4 will be.

Album Block

Begin by imagining how you will fill the center 4″ square. What colors and textures will you use for your Flying Geese units? Will you transform the corner squares into triangles?

Sarah Y. tested the instructions, and she says “they work.” My instructions employ the “one rectangle/two squares” method of making Flying Geese units. However, if you, like Sarah, prefer a “no waste” method for making Flying Geese, check out the tutorial and cutting chart by Amy Smart, https://www.diaryofaquilter.com/fast-flying-geese-sawtooth-star/

Click on the “Options BOM QAL” tab in the menu. You will navigate to a page with background info and instructions for all the blocks to date. Scroll down to the end of the list, and click on Options #4 – Album. Be sure to send me a picture of your blocks (aby.quilts@gmail.com) and/or post a photo on Instagram #optionsqal.

I can’t wait to see the variations you dream up. Have fun!
