    2. But if you can't wait, just email me at and I will send them to you :) I know all about how exciting it is to start cutting out your projects :)

  4. Hi Melissa,
    I took your class last week at Thanksgiving Point.
    Could you please give me finishing sizes of the different parts. My cutting and sewing?
    Just need to square up to sew the block to be symmetrical. Thank you. Corner units before sewing to side units. i'm thinking I need 9 units all the same size, and what is that size before sewing including the allowance oh wait, there's more. block finished is _x_?

    1. Hi Margie,

      Each of the units are 7 1/2" unfinished and 7" finished. Just be super careful when squaring them up that you don't cut off your seam allowances, especially on the flying geese :)


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
