Teaching an Old Dog New Tricks!

In the Traveling Bee quilt group I am participating in, we are having a quilt-along.  Each month one of the participants chooses a block and everyone sews it up.  This month Vickie chose Dutchman’s Puzzle.  The flying geese block is an old standard, but Vickie posted a tutorial at www.sisterschoice.typepad.com/sisters_choice_quilts/2007/04/f that shows how to make four blocks at once.  Wow!  I have always cut the rectangle, put the squares in the corners, sewn edge to edge, cut off the ears, pressed and repeat.  The method shown in the tutorial is speedy and insures perfect points every time.

Fun!  I wouldn’t mind a whole quilt out of this one…
