This is another one of my favorites that I finished a couple years ago. Red and white quilts and flying geese are my love. They are timeless.
Many quilters will say they dislike piecing flying geese but I don’t recall ever hearing anyone say they dislike red and white quilts. The flying geese and square in a square are paper pieced. You don’t need anything fancy, (a 3×5 note card will work)but my preferred tools are graph paper of any size, a ruler and a retractable pencil (a must). Decide on the dimensions you would like your geese and draw them in stacks of 4-10, whatever will fit on your graph paper. Then print as many copies as you need and start piecing. Whether its 20 geese in a row or 100 geese in a row, they will prove more accurate with paper piecing. You wont get wavy geese either, if you have ever made a lot of individual geese to stack you know what I mean.
If you are new to paper piecing and would like further instruction on drawing your own flying geese, go to my contact page and sent me a message. I’d be happy to expand on this a little.
