Good day and welcome to my blog.
After finishing my recent Nearly Insane project I was at loose ends You know that quietness after a big project is done? So I did other things for a week, but I came back into the quilting space and started sewing up flying geese using a no waste method.
https://www.patchpieces.com/files/flyinggeese.pdf is my source. There are other tutorials on the web.
I had a number of sewn geese from a previous project - many geese in columns in this finished quilt from 2017. And since I cut without counting, many cut big squares and little squares for the no waste method.
Since I had already done geese in a column, I decided to try a different block. I believe this is called Dutchman's Puzzle:
Laid out on the carpet. Each "goose" is 4 by 2 inches finished. I have gone very scrappy so these blocks will definitely get a dark sashing - maybe dark gray, navy blue, or brown, to tone things down!
I am also finding that my geese are not all turning out the same size - time to pay attention to my method and be as accurate as I can.
