Dutchman's Puzzle Quilt BlocksYou'll make two versions of the Dutchman's Puzzle quilt block.
Each block is sewn with a dark background in one half and a light background in its other half, although some use dark teal for their inner pinwheel and others are assembled with light teal in that position. In other words, fabrics that create the geese are flip-flopped.
Cut Fabric for the Dutchman's Puzzle Quilt BlocksThe no-waste Flying Geese method results in four geese units per set of squares sewn and then subdivided. That's a perfect outcome for this version of the Dutchman's Puzzle, because each block contains four geese units of each color combination. (More about the No-Waste Flying Geese Method)
Only one color combo is illustrated in the assembly instructions, but all are assembled in exactly the same way.
For Every PAIR of Quilt BlocksDark Teal: (2) 5-1/4" x 5-1/4" squares
Light Teal: (2) 5-1/4" x 5-1/4" squares
Black: (8) 2-7/8" x 2-7/8" squares
Light Neutral: (8) 2-7/8" x 2-7/8" squares
When you make a quilt, cut only the patches shown above for two test blocks. I recommend you do that for any quilt pattern you encounter, mine or another writer's. We all make errors, writers as typos and quilters when they cut.
