# Thread: Flying Geese 20+ at a time

1. ## Flying Geese 20+ at a time

Here is my method for making lots of flying geese at the same time. These graphics are for making 20 but it could be for more by adding length to my strips or extra strips. Enjoy!

2. WOW, that is great. But what room is if you are off a bit with your straight stitching. I like EB method with two squares 4 because before the final cut, you can make some adjustments.

3. there is a little wiggle room at the top of the geese. I use the lines on my ruler to make sure the sides are exactly perpendicular to the bottom. Any other adjustments due to being off with the straight stitching I make when I sew the geese together, slightly adjusting my 1\4" seam allowance if needed.

4. Thanks for sharing your method. You must have put a lot of thought into this or did it just come to you one day? Sometimes, if we are lucky, we have an AHA moment and from that moment, great ideas are born.

What size finished Geese do you end up with? I have lots of patterns and they all seem to require different size geese. I'd like to be able to use your method and adapt it to any size finished geese.

5. The instruction was for a finished size of 4 x 2 (4-1/2 x 2-1/2 raw size). You need to do a little math to find the other dimensions:
_______________________

For a 5 x 2-1/2" flying geese unit (5-1/2 x 3 raw size):
take the long dimension and square it (i.e. 5-1/2 squared would be 30-1/4)
divide that in half (15-1/8)
take the square root of that (4 when you round up)
add seam allowance to give you a 4-1/2" strip for the geese and a 5-1/4" strip for the sky (always 3/4" larger).

So your Step 3 strips would be 4-1/2" wide

I haven't tested this though - let me know if it works for you!

6. Thanks for sharing this with us.

7. Wow! I've got to try this! Thanks!

8. Thank You. You are so clever and I am so math challenged I will surly try this.

9. This is something I have never seen and what a time (frustration saver). Thank you for posting in such detail.

10. This looks interesting. I may give it a shot next time I need a lot of flying geese. Thanks.
