    If you haven't seen it, look for the one seam flying geese! There's a good youtube video showing how to do it.

    Here's the method I like: http://www.quilterscache.com/H/Howtomakegeese.html (Method B, about half-way down the page). It's the same principle, but you don't have to pin your first squares to keep them out of the way.

    I also like the one-seam method if I'm making something where it's okay for the geese to be three-dimensional. It's a fun method to do - seems almost like magic!

    You also might like this method for making flying geese. It's from Ricky Tims and it is called the "One Seam Flying Geese Block".

    Instead of pinning the two squares up go ahead and cut on the line, press the two pieces up , you will have a what looks like a heart. Then sew your other square and cut. You will not nip any fabric. The is in Billie Lauder's quick trick book

    When you get to the last step, you have a two pieces that consist of a square with two triangles attached - they look sort of like a heart. You also have two square pieces yet to be sewn. Place one of those squares on top of the square of the heart, right sides together, and sew 1/4" on either side of the center line of the square. Cut on the center line and you have two flying geese from each heart.

    Here's another tutorial that shows it step by step using real fabric. It might be easier to unerstand than my description! http://thelastpiece.typepad.com/the_...utorial-1.html

    I chain piece my flying geese. They go pretty fast. This method seems like a lot of steps. I'll be curious to know if it actually saves any time or effort.

    I'm going to try this method because I hate making flying geese. Even though I sew my seam to the waste-side of the line it almost always ends up with the wing points curving in. And if this doesn't work I'll try the cutting triangles method.
