The Magnolia Mystery Quilt contains instructions for both Lap and Queen sizes which are both included in this post:



Half Geese Units

If using pre-cuts for Fabric B:
      -  Make an even number of left and right facing geese units from each pre-cut (layer cake slice/jelly roll strip/fat quarter) and keep the right and left half geese units from each pre-cut together.


Combine the following fabric squares to form Left and Right Facing Half Geese Units using the method outlined below:

LAP:
36 Fabric B rectangles (2 ½” x 4 ½”) and 36 Fabric D squares (2 ½” x 2 ½”) to make 36 left facing half geese units (2 ½” x 4 ½”).

36 Fabric B rectangles (2 ½” x 4 ½”) and 36 Fabric D squares (2 ½” x 2 ½”) to make 36 right facing half geese units (2 ½” x 4 ½”).

QUEEN:
36 Fabric B rectangles (3 ½” x 6 ½”) and 36 Fabric D squares (3 ½” x 3 ½”) to make 36 left facing half geese units (3 ½” x 6 ½”).

36 Fabric B rectangles (3 ½” x 6 ½”) and 36 Fabric D squares (3 ½” x 3 ½”) to make 36 right facing half geese units (3 ½” x 6 ½”).

      1. Place a Fabric D square on the short side of a Fabric B rectangle right sides together. Draw a diagonal line using a removable marking device on the back of the Fabric D square (shown as the solid line).

The left facing and right facing half geese units are mirror images of each other so be sure to double
check the orientation of the marked line.

      2. Sew along the marked line.

      3. Trim ¼” from the seam line and press open or towards the Fabric D.

      4. Repeat to make a total of 36 left facing half geese units and 36 right facing half geese units.

  7. This is my first quilting or sewing project through social media. I am really enjoying the step by step process. Since I cannot see the end result, I'm not overwhelmed, just looking forward and going forward!
