Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Thanks for posting this. I saw it once and have been trying to remember what show it was on.
i came on it by accident. sure thought it was neatOriginally Posted by barbsbus
That's one of the ways I make my Flying Geese - so simple. And it allows you to gently fold back the edge and stitch to make it look curved.
i just thought it was so cool. it's something i can even do lolOriginally Posted by HMK

Butterflyspain - did you catch on that he said he learned it from ladies in England? :mrgreen:
One Seam Flying Geese Block
1 3 x 5 ½ inch strip – will be the geese
2 3 inch squares – will be the sky
This will make one 4 ½ inch x 2 ½ inch finished flying geese unit.
Fold strip in half wrong sides together.
Put folded strip on top of one (right side up) square matching raw edges of folded strip to the top and left raw edge of square. Fold should be facing bottom with a ¼ inch space from folded edge to bottom of square.
Place second square (wrong side up) on top of the folded strip matching raw edges to first square making a sandwich with the folded strip in the middle.
Sew ¼ inch seam down the right side of all layers. There should be a ¼ inch section at bottom with only the two square fabrics in seam.
Open the sandwich and fold out the strip to form the geese section.

Oh my gosh! Couldn't be any easier. I haven't tried flying geese before and have issues with triangles LOL. I think even I could handle THIS method! Thanks for sharing.
