40 Geese A Flying

Got up this morning and started the “Process.”


And can I just say that it feels so good when the process works!

In her instructions, Ellen Burns says to “just clip somewhere in the middle” after you sew the two sides together again.  I hate when things are vague – I like to ask “Why” a lot… So here is how I do it and there is little to no chance for errors:

  1. Once you have sewn the two halves together, you then cut down the middle line again
  2. This gives you 2 large triangles. You now need to open this up and press it flat. However, because of the you want the tips to be pressed in the same way so that they are flat you will need to clip between them – this will created a very flat flying geese block. So what I do is fold this large triangle in half again. Then I carefully flip at the fold, making sure not to cut thru the seam, just right up to it.
  3. Then I am able to press these open and very flat. This makes such a difference going forward – less bulky.
  4. After this you cut the block in half between the two “Geese” parts and trim down to 4 1/2 x 8 1/2 – I don’t have her Flying Geese rulers, but if you are patient and measure (twice) you can trim these up pretty easily.

There you have it 40 Flying Geese.
