No Waste Flying Geese Shortcut and 3D Flying Geese Tutorial

I found a shortcut method with no waste of fabric for making flying geese at Patchpieces.com. I have never seen it done this way, and I thought you all might be interested in seeing how this works.


For their instructions click here.

Patchpieces.com has many free tutorials, quilt motifs, applique patterns and paperpieced patterns. To check them out click here.

In reading a little deeper into the Patchpieces site, I discovered that the site is run by Patti Anderson, a pattern designer. You can buy her designs on her site. She also is an expert at the EQ software program and has some tutorials on the use of that and is in the process of developing more on the use of EQ. I plan on going there and checking this site out more, as I really think it is worth the time.

Here is a nice tutorial on how to do the 3D flying geese. This was found at:

Is There Ever Enough Time to Quilt
They have a picture tutorial of how it is done. I have drafted the instructions below which you can get a printer friendly version of here.

  1. I love that flying geese tutorial! I found it several years ago and make them that way every time. The tutorial I found didn't have the math but a chart with different finished sizes. I'm going to print this one out because i like the math better. thanks for sharing on Sew Darn Crafty!

Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness in leaving a comment. Sorry for the verification, but I have had a lot of trouble with spam lately.
