Just a word of caution, you end up with bias edges and as with most flying geese units these bias edges will be on the outside edge of your block. I avoid bias edges if at all possible on my blocks. I am a longarm quilter and it does not matter what you do to bias edges they still prohibit a quilt top from laying nice and flat when loaded on the longarm machine.

Wow! Fabulous. It looks a bit like a Chinese puzzle. I'll have to try it the next time I need lots of identical geese. Thanks!

Wow, I just saw this, looks amazing, especially if you need a lot of the same colored geese!

I will be giving this a try the next time I need to make geese. Clever method. Any problems with bias edges?

Haven't had any problems with the 4" size. You would need to be careful with the larger sizes. I always recommend gentle handling of all bias edges and no pinning to a design wall for extended periods unless they are sewn in place.
