The 89th block of The Splendid Sampler™ is called “From Colorado to the Midwest”, by Ebony Love. I pieced this one as a leader-and-ender project for another block, and it came together really smoothly! I was amazed when I realised I had only used the seam-ripper once, and for a misplaced piece.
It indeed helped the construction method for the Flying Geese units. I rather prefer working with triangles on the bias than the stitch-and-flip method. In this case, all the units needed some minor trimming and all had the right dimensions. This method is also a fabric saver!
I also pressed all the seams open in this one… the block I was working on called for them, and I just kept doing it on this one… which worked!
