Default Update to Dizzy Geese

I had posted asking for assitance making this block, designed by Joan Streck.

https://www.quiltingboard.com/main-f...p-t293929.html

Feline fanatic suggested a make a paper pieced pattern instead of traditionally piecing this with the templates. I could not figure out the paper pieced pattern for the entire block, but I was able to paper piece the star points after making a pattern from the templates.
Success!!!!
You need your imagination for this....the blue rectangles will be flying geese...I just used random scraps for this. It lays flat, and it is 17 1/2, just like its supposed to be! When I make the actual blocks, I will cut the 2corner triangle piecs larger than the pattern calls for and trim them.
Thank you all for your suggestions!
