    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.

    One Seam Flying Geese Block
    English Method

    Cut
    1 3 x 5 inch strip – will be the geese
    2 3 inch squares – will be the sky

    This will make one 4 inch x 2 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 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 inch seam down the right side of all layers. There should be a 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.

    Beverly: Thank you for this website. I've been watching Ricky Tims do his one seam flying geese block for the past hour, over and over and over again as I HATE making flying geese but think I will LOVE this technique. Will give it a try this afternoon and see what I think. Anyway,
    thanks. I appreciate your sharing, caring heart.

    This is on the website of the link posted above:


    Making Geese in Any Size, The Formula:

    You can make your Flying Geese in any size using the following formula:

    Size of squares = 1/2 inch larger than the desired finished height of the overall unit.

    Height of the rectangle = same as the squares you cut.

    Width of the rectangle = width of square times two minus 1/2 inch.

    In other words, if you cut 2" squares, you would cut the rectangle 2" x 3.5"

    Pretty simple, and great look. But it does use twice as much fabric. . .
