    Final chapter of the Dizzy Geese...I promise!

    For anyone following my dilemma, I think I have this block figured out. The pieces that are not behaving are the template pieces. I am cutting them spot on, they are the same size as the printed templates in the book, etc.
    The template pieces are the 3 pieces in the star points, and the little weirdly shaped pieces on the ends of the flying geese blocks. Tried to make a paper pieced pattern, per Feline Fanatic’s suggestion, only got as far as the star points, but I ended up just making them oversized and trimmed. I know this one isn’t perfect, but I know where the adjustment needs to be made for the rest of the blocks. We head south soon, so I hope to get this cut and ready to sew while we are away.
    Pattern is Dizzy Geese by Joan Streck. Inspired by Don’s beautiful quilt that he posted here a few years ago.
    Whew.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Bravo! Your block looks great and BRAVO for sticking with it.
    I know that struggles of that particular block. I tried to make it several years ago & WOW was it a booger.
    Funny thing - I posted about it on my blog and people still contact ME for the pattern. Dizzy Geese is definitely a challenging block - but soooo pretty!

    Yes, Deb used Joan’s pattern for the center, and designed her flyaway border that uses her flying geese tool. I try to limit my ruler and gadget purchases, and I find that using the no waste method of making FG works well for me. Is that your quilt? Pretty!

    Who cares if you didn't do the square the proper way. The square looks PERFECT to my eyes!!! Great job. Make your final post one of finished quilt when you get home.

    I had done this quilt in calicoes. It was very scrappy. But, I love the red and green you did. I may have to make another some day

    Here is my dizzy geese. I added an extra row of geese in the border to add to the length.
