    Yes, it works. Played with it a little bit using a few left over JR strips, and just made two rows of one block, and would need to tweek the measurements, but here it is:

    That would be great if it would work. Maybe we should give it a try with some scrap.
    There is a "Cutting Corners" ruler or template that I have for that but it is a bit confusing and I only have used it with Cozy Quilt Design patterns.

    I agree, even Jenny seemed to have a problem with the wonkyness (is that a word) in the video (at 9:30) and was trying to staighten it out.

    When dealing with bias and jelly rolls, using starch is a good idea.

    I just tried a test block for this pattern.....very wonky! Once sewn, the 2.5 inch squares are bias on the 4.5 inch rectangle...I would use starch and be extremely careful on pressing when making the geese! One end of the block is wider than the other.....also, make sure your sew line is acurate and all the rectangles are the same size before sewing them together.....

    In fact, anyone that attempts this block should not only use starch, but make several test blocks before you start on the fabric you intend to create the quilt with! JMO!

    As pretty as this quilt is...I won't be making this one!

    It's very cute. Looks simple enough. Not sure if I would do it. But, I like that blue/yellow.

    If you make the block the way the PDF has it layed out, you would need to make 16 cuts, then each block would require 15 seams sewn AND you would have a seam down the middle of the geese, making it a little harder to have a nice crisp point at the top of the geese.

    If you make it the way Jenny demonstrated, you only need to make 14 cuts, then it's only 13 seams per block with no seam down the middle of the geese and easier to have a crisper point.
    That makes perfect sense - thank you!

    I like this pattern. The only thing that keeps bugging me about snowballing, is the waste of fabric. It just cost way too much to waste, and I not fond of collecting a bunch of scraps. They are just too little to make the little hst's to use otherwise for me. Argh!

    I like this block. I can see it as a baby quilt or maybe even in Halloween prints.
