Default Flying Geese 20 at a time

I decided to try carlaklop's tutorial http://www.quiltingboard.com/tutoria...e-t268374.html
Since it was my first time, it probably took me the same time as doing them individually. But the process seemed easier and the results very good. There are plenty of opportunities for error I did a bit of unsewing. And if you are not good at accurate 1/4" seams and matching points, this is not the method for you. I used plenty of starch before cutting... but pressed one square a little wonky.

The first picture shows incorrect assembly on the left and correct assembly on the right.


The next picture is the finished geese.


And this last picture shows the leftovers. It's a good thing I only needed 18 geese because I cut one too short and I could leave out the patched black goose. There was more leftover sky fabric than I prefer, but I think I will use the method again.
