Precious Gems Clue 1

Welcome, welcome! If you have any questions at all, please text or email me. Feel free to send pictures of your completed clues or of places you need assurance that you’re doing it right!

If your pre-sewing isn’t done, you need to start there/here:

Ruby Stitch and flip a 5” B square onto one end of a C3 rectangle to make ½ Flying Geese component, then stitch and flip a second 5” B square on the opposite end of the rectangle to complete the Flying Geese. Make 16.

Then, on to Clue 1

Ruby

  • The top of the Flying Geese is the part where the two B triangles (wings) overlap. Lay out two Flying Geese, bottom edges together. Slide the Geese apart and sew a 9½” C2 square between them. Make 4.

Diamond

  • Stitch and flip a 5” C2 square onto the end of a 5 x 18½” rectangle, then stitch and flip a 5” C2 square onto the other end of the rectangle to make a Flying Goose with a really wide wingspan. Make 4.
  • The top of the C1 block is the edge where the B wings overlap. Sew the bottom of the 5 x 18½” wide-bodied Flying Goose to the top of the C1 block. Make 4.
