Lucy Goosey in 3D

This is a fun 3 D project (your geese are dimensional). Quick to make and what kid doesn’t love playing with tags and flappy things? This one is made for a little girl.
It would be a great shower gift to display cards in, or……

baby shower gifts.

2 Charm Packs (72 charms, 36 matching pairs)
3/4 yard of coordinating fabric for borders
1 1/4 yard for backing
1/3 yard binding

New needle (you’ll be stitching through several layers at a time)

Unit A: take 2 matching charms and sew together. Make 18 pairs.

Press seams open.Fold wrong sides together. This is unit A.

Sandwich unit A between 2 matching charms. Place the first charm right side up. Place unit A putting the fold towards the top. Sides and bottom will match, the fold will be 1/4″ from the top edge. Place the second charm right side down.
Sew along one side.
pull the center portion so your block looks like this.
I pinned the bottom corners and the center and finger pressed the seam open – repeat to make 18 flying geese units. Sew into 3 rows of 6.
Press seams open to prevent bulk. Cut 4 strips at 2 1/2″ for sashing and side borders.

Cut 2 strips at 6 1/2″ for the top and bottom borders.

Bind: we cut 4 strips at 2″ for the binding. You may prefer your binding a little wider.
Here are some other finishing ideas. A tablerunner,
use Christmas fabrics and use it to hold your holiday cards,
this is using Miss Jump fabrics for a boy quilt
One super fun project (35″ x 39″) that can be a baby quilt, table runner, or a wall hanging to hold cards.
