    Another Flying Geese method

    It's so simple as a way to make rows of flying geese; why didn't I think of it?

    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    I watched this some time ago but it looks more complicated then just sewing the blocks of flying geese together. I haven't actually tried it though. Anyone made the rows this way?
    Got fabric?

    What does she do with all the little triangles she's cutting away? Looks good to me., will try it.

    She certainly makes it look quicker, than the regular way. I kept worrying about her burning herself, on that iron!!!

    lol. I was worried about the iron too. It did look like an easy way to make the geese. Thanks for sharing.

    I have done this, which is about the same as you make them if you use the foundation paper piecing method, as far as the continuous piecing. If you do it this way with the squares and rectangles, you wind up with a lot of little stray (possibly wasted bits). I saw a suggestion somewhere (very likely on Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville) that you can make a second seam a half inch away before snipping off the triangles, and what falls away is a little HST block, which could be much more useful than a bunch of triangles with open bias edges that tend to get stretched before you'd get around to using them. It takes longer, but you can think of it as working on two quilts at the same time. Or they might make a great border on the flying geese quilt.

    I watched the tut. on the flying geese, and I thiink it's a great idea. My problem is that I have no idea what the measurements are for the rectangles and the squares. I understand that they can be made different sizes,but where do I start,or is that something that I should know?

    Flying Geese

    This is the easiest method for making geese and no waste.
    I've viewed this video and it seems so slow. JMHO
