|Flying Ducks quilt block|
The second learning experience in this quilt block is known as a three quarter square triangle patch. Two quarter square triangles are used to make one side of the square and this then is sewn to a third triangle. You use different methods for the initial cuts of these triangles as it is always preferable to have the straight of grain of the fabric on the outside of the patch (to avoid distortion).
The two sample quilts shown use very basic on point settings of the blocks, but the resultant quilts look very different.
