Block 5 of Rosebud Fayre Medallion Quilt
In this section Valerie & Jennie make the Flying Geese units for the borders; design and make them into four borders for the medallion quilt. They give you an alternative setting, so that you could turn the quilt into a rectangular bed quilt.
Also, they talk about the corner star square, it is made from four flying geese units, different size to the border, which they have coupled with a plain rectangle.
For those wishing to see more on how to use Flying Geese there are two other great workshops with Valerie: Fast Flying Geese, No Waste and Modern Flying Geese Quilt.
