Building Foundations Sampler QAL – Block 20


This week’s quilt-along block, Block #20, is Winged Arrow, from a syndicated mail-order column written by Florence LaGanke Harris; printed in many periodicals in the late 1920s – 1940s.



From background, (pale blue and green in photo above) cut 8 — 3 5/8″ squares (cut in half diagonally to make 16 A triangles).

From accent fabric #1 (orange in photo above) cut 1 — 5 3/4″ square (cut in half diagonally twice to make 4 B triangles).

From accent fabric #2 (red-orange in photo above) cut 1 — 5 3/4″ square (cut in half diagonally twice to make 4 B triangles).



1. Join one background A triangle and one accent fabric #1 B triangle as shown below. Press seam allowance toward print fabric. Make four.


2. Join a second background A triangle to the opposite side to complete flying geese units:


3. Trim each flying geese unit to 3″ x 5″:WingedArrowGeese3

4. Repeat steps 1-3 using accent fabric #2 B triangles.

5. Join an accent fabric #1 flying geese to the bottom edge of an accent fabric #2 flying geese. Unit should measure 5″ square.


6. Lay out four units in the spinning direction shown below. Join into rows, join rows to complete Winged Arrow block.



7. Square block to 9 1/2″.
