Snowflake corners

This is the last part of the snowflake block.

It's time to make the corners. Here is a quick tutorial for foundation piecing. The wrong side of the fabric faces the wrong side of the paper. Each piece has been cut to size.

The piecing on the corner will use the prints in number order. #2 print is the same as # 1 on the wings. #5 on the corner is the same  #4 on the wings. # 8 on the corner is the same as # 7 on the wings.

The first set of rectangles is the smaller set. The next round will be the larger rectangle.

It is important to check against a light source that the triangles are centered.

I had the most trouble with the last pesky triangle. I am not sure why.

Each block will need four matching corners. And these corners should have the same fabric as the four matching wings. So make 64.
After this we are ready to assemble. It won't be long now.

  1. Beautiful, I love flying geese.

  2. Looks like you've got a system all worked out to finish off those corners.
