    I finished this quilt about 2 months ago. What a time consuming job. Well over 400 flying geese. Yes, I counted them!!!! Most of the geese I paper pieced then I switched off using the large square and four smaller square method. It took me at least a month working everyday, 6-8 hours a day to complete it. Certainly not for the faint hearted. Be glad to answer any questions you may have just PM me.

    I have made this quilt and its not that bad really....... I did paper piece the borders, did the blocks the usual way. Did you cut your triangles cross grain? maybe they are stretching a bit? Dont give up, just starch, press and trim. I dont recall using a scant 1/4" seam,,,, maybe try a scrap block with the full 1/4" ?

    I am making a Dizzy Geese quilt top. It is a difficult pattern to make but so worth the effort. My geese were a tad too small for my center star and when put together, gave my block an "A" cup..... I found that by stitching the small squares just beside the line made the difference for me. You just have to figure out what works for you.

    [QUOTE=katiemedarlin;4023380] I think this is an intermediate quilt, don't you? No set in seams (haven't quite mastered that yet, still get little puckers). I'm sure I can do this if I can just work past my issues. QUOTE]

    I may be able to help you with this problem since I have no clue about the flying geese problem. I think you my be taking one stitch too many when you are doing you set-in seams. I know one stitch doesn't seem like much but it did cause my first couple of attempts to pucker. Also when do set-in seams make sure you back tack.

    This link isn't for the Dizzy Geese, but it is for geese in a circle. http://www.bryerpatch.com/pattern/pattern.htm

    I have made this. It took me 8 hours to complete the first block after redoing 4 times. You have to make sure your 1/4 inch is right on. When you put together the corner clocks move your needle once or twice to the right. I used the "scant" 1.4 inch for the entire corner block. This is absolutely the key to making it all fit.
