With the heart detail in the center, this block is beyond sweet and we love a good set of flying geese but this block has a twist. The Star & Heart Present block showcases a whole new technique for making flying geese.

You will need to make 3 Star & Heart Present quilt blocks to complete the Handmade with Love quilt top.

Trimming up half square triangles for the Star & Heart Present Block in the Handmade with Love quilt along.

That means we are back at the machine making those half square triangles. Thank goodness for the Clearly Perfect Slotted Trimmers. That ruler is seriously a MUST have in the studio!

Pressing the Star & Heart Present Block in the Handmade with Love quilt along.

To achieve flat seams, it is extremely important to be mindful of pressing direction as you work. While the pattern calls for all HST’s to be pressed towards the color, we suggestion pressing half towards the color side and half towards the white. That will help your seams nest tightly together.

Come join the fun as we make block 5 in the Handmade with Love quilt along, the Star & Heart Present Quilt Block
