    Flying Geese - Variation???

    Hello .... By chance would someone have this paper piecing pattern that can point me in the right direction to find it?

    I am looking for the Paper Piecing Flying Geese variation where the geese are not in the traditional straight row, but a wave.

    I thought I had it, but of course, now that I am looking for them, geese are hiding on me!

    Please? and Thank You, Everyone!

    try these links

    http://whynotsew.blogspot.com/2011/0...d-pattern.html

    Most (all?) of those are instructions on how to make your own. I think this is what you want? Any ready-made PP template would be in a specific size/shape which may not conform to what you are making, so thinking making your own is the best option.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    You should do a google search for the terms "Migrating geese quilt pattern" or "Staggered flying geese".

    Here is a tutorial for how to do it with traditional piecing: https://www.quiltingboard.com/tutori...se-t43812.html

    Hello Everyone ... OK, so what happened?
    I swear I left a message on here on Friday. Where did it go?
    Surely it did not get edited out like my original post?

    Meanwhile, I got sidetracked on the weekend.
    Part of that was following the links and playing on paper. Not ready for fabric yet!

    Thanks Everyone for your suggestions/links. They have been quite helpful.
    Feline Fanatic ... exactly what I was looking for!
    DogHouseMom ... You swayed me there with that make-my-own possibility, because of the tidier look than with all the seams one gets in the other. But am I up for it?
    Rebecca_S ... Always good to have more options. Thanks for the word suggestions for google. I know it's a matter of coming up with the right combo for Google, to find what one wants. Sometimes I miss the right words!

    I want to play with it more on paper for a while before anything will happen with fabric!

    If anyone has any more ideas .... always welcome!

    But I think you have had much the same, have you not?
