Default Paper pieced flying geese

If I paper piece this, what order do I sew? (Ignore my stray line)

Start with the bottom triangle....and add left side triangle then right side triangle...then the next triangle above it and so on..

You would work from right to left, starting with the large triangle, or as tellabella posted, turn the block 90 degrees clockwise, so the large geese triangles point up.

To PP FG I would invest in the Blocloc rulers. I recently bought some and love them. Perfect FG and no paper to remove.

You might be interested in this tutorial. I found it very helpful when I paper pieced a flying geese border. http://www.generations-quilt-pattern...ing-geese.html

Why not just make individual fg and sew together.....would seem a lot easier, les stress, less fabric waste...cut all rectangles, squares,sew up and done.....that's what I would do....I only pp if there is no other way to accomplish some look.

I just made a bunch of them yesterday, using the quilterscache.com templates: http://quilterscache.com/B/BlankPPTemplatesPage.html -- there are also instructions for making them using the traditional method and speed piecing method: http://quilterscache.com/H/Howtomakegeese.html

Because I have made them a dozen ways, hate most, like paper piecing and I want them to be accurate. It would not be less stress for me.

Thank you. Don't know what I was thinking-this is the idea I copied but they didn't have the odd size "set of four" I need. Forgot all about going back and looking at their "assembly numbers" after I drew my own out.
