Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Accurately cut using a rotary cutter
  • Sew a scant 1/2" seam
  • Press seams open
  • Have a basic understanding of a flying goose block. You don't have to have mad flying goose skills - hopefully you'll have those when you are done with this pattern - but knowing the gist of how they work will help.

Pattern Description:

I love a good scrappy block in a quilt with a modern flavor, and that's what you get with this pattern; use up some cool scraps in the block, then set them three different ways to create a lovely modern-esque quilt with lots of room for creative quilting. Or creatively sending it out to your favorite machine quilter and "quilting by check." The choice is yours. Either way it will be stunning.

Triangles on a Roll TM "Sew and Flip Geese" were determined to be the most accurate method of piecing the geese to make the blocks come together like a perfectly cooked goose. I do recommend them for use with this pattern, but if you have a method of goose cookery that you prefer, have at it. Directions for cutting pieces are given for use with Sew and Flip Geese.

"Happy Jacks" is the result of my 2014 group block project, run on my Quilting Hottie Haven blog. Over twenty five quilters participated in testing the basic block for me by creating beautifully scrappy jack blocks. I chose my favorite from each of them and put them together into the quilts shown on both the front and back covers and could not be more thrilled with them.

About the designer

I probably started sewing as a measure of self defense; if my mom was busy teaching me about 5/8" seams and casings for elastics, there was no way she could whip up yet another set of matching floor ...
