No Waste Flying Geese – 4 at 1 time

No Waste Flying Geese – 4 at 1 time

Thank you so much for sharing!

Today I’ve got a great quilting technique video for you. Learn how to make no waste flying geese with this easy to follow video tutorial!  And we get to make 4 at once! This is a great method when you need to make a lot of flying geese or you have blocks that specifically need 4.

Flying Geese are a staple in quilting. It doesn’t matter if you have more of a modern or traditional aesthetic, these are always good to know how to make.  They can also be a bit frustrating at first, but once you learn the little tricks they are a breeze.

What you need to make these no waste flying geese:

Here is the chart I created for the flying geese.  Follow along with the video to learn all of the steps, but here is the measurements for cutting your squares based on what you waste flying geese chart

*Measurements are in inches

A Note on Trimming

In the video I mention that you need to line up the 3 1/4 mark with the tip of the triangle.  If you are doing a different size, that number needs to be half of the width of your cut size. So 3 1/4 was half of 6 1/2 which was the width of the block in my demo.

This method of making flying geese is perfect for blocks like the Sawtooth Star block that need exactly 4 same size flying geese.

If you love to make flying geese, I recommend the Wing Clipper Ruler.  It’s great to know the basics, but if you are making a lot of these for a quilt it does make things easier, especially with the trimming.

I also love the Quilt in a Day Flying Geese ruler, can you tell I love making these?!  Here is a video I made on how to use this type of ruler.

If you love flying geese as much as I do, I invite you to check out my premium course all about flying geese!  Here is a post with some more details.

Thankyou I really enjoyed your simple approach to teaching the flying geese blocks. You have inspired me to give it a try. I have been in Quilting for 17 years but have only done a few pieced blocks. I mainly hand quilt panels. But I feel I am turning a corner and want more out of my Quilting projects. Look forward to seeing more of your teaching.
