Welcome to the fabric.com Fall Block Party! Each Tuesday for the next 9 weeks, an awesome group of designers will be bringing you exclusive quilt block designs and free patterns to kickstart your seasonal projects.
Fall is my absolute favorite time of year, and I’m so excited to kick off this sew-a-long with the Fall Geese blocks – a paper piece Half-Rectangle Triangle quilt block.
This quilt block is suitable for the beginner quilter with basic knowledge of paper piecing. For those of you new to paper piecing, rest easy as the pattern has step-by-step instructions on how to make your own HRT block.
I decided to go with a yummy fall color palette that is inspired by the fall foliage found throughout the Southwest in October.
I had the chance to test out my new Day Light Company lightbox and I have to say, it made a world of difference y’all when aligning the fabric with the paper piece template and was small enough to fit on sewing table while piecing. Win win in my book!
There are a variety of ways to layout this quilt block to achieve different looks. I decided to turn my quilt block into a table runner and now I can’t wait to host my next dinner party. Come to think of it, this would make a great hostesses gift!

The table runner came together in no time at all, and this would also make a fabulous full-sized quilt of course.
Sew along with us throughout this series and be sure to post your projects on social media using #fabricdotcomblockparty!
