Point Me Geese Blocks

I've finished four of the seven pieced flying geese blocks for Point Me.

These blocks are more tricky to make than they look.  Despite cutting the mini triangles so the straight of grain lies on the bottom (long) side of the triangle, they still tend to stretch a bit.  I am having to be very careful when I press the seams (press, not iron!), but still, I will need to do a bit of "stretch and ease" when it comes time to sew the blocks together.  Of course, once that is done, the rest of the quilt will be easy peasy!
I am looking forward to a sewing filled weekend.  It is too cold to go anywhere.
