    How do I add a curved flying geese to a strip pieced top?

    I am making a jelly roll strip pieced quilt top and want to add a curving row of flying geese. However, I'm not sure how to go about it. All suggestions will be most welcomed.

    Where do you want to add the flying geese? As the border? I saw a tutorial on youtube a couple of days ago that showed 1-seam flying geese where you fold back the edges like a cathedral window to make them curved. Is that what you're looking for?
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    After I finish piecing the top, I want to add a curving row of flying geese to it in another color but I don't know if I will have to paperpiece the FG and then applique the curve onto the top of if I can cut the top and inset it.

    I think it would be possible to cut the top and inset the flying geese, but I think it would be easier (for me anyway) to applique them onto the top. What you're describing sounds like it will be beautiful.
