    I need some help making flying geese. I have made them a lot of time for former projects.
    I had a sheet of paper which I had copied from somewhere with about 20 flying geese. You could just copy and keep copying until you had enough flying geese, and still have a sheet with the pattern on it, and all could be paper pieced. I had "saved it" several years ago, because it was such a help to me.
    Well, now that I need the pattern again, and the speed of making paper pieced, I can't find the paper.
    Could anyone help me? I just want to make the geese as an outer border for a block. It will take 12-15 to a side.
    Any help will be appreciated. Just the size for the block is great. If anyone has the pattern on a sheet of paper for paper piecing, that would be wonderful.
    Quilter's Cache has a pattern, but it takes longer to do.
    Thanks, Mariah.

    Small; don't know the size, but probably not over 2" long.

    Have one that is 2 1/2" wide with 4 geese (2"each). It is easy to adjust as long as it is increments of two. Let me know if that will work for you and I'll get it to you.

    Eleanor Burns makes a terrific flying geese ruler that you do with two squares of fabric and get 4 flying geese. She has the ruler in about 4 sizes.

    Ricky Tims did a tute on one seam flying geese. Very easy!

    Here's a link to a YouTube video, making flying geese. He makes it seem so easy. :)
