Quick and Easy Flying Geese Units

I had seen this method of constructing Flying Geese units on various blogs in the past, but it looked way too complicated for me, so I never bothered to give it a try.  However, the directions for a quilt I'm currently working on didn't allow for any other methods, so I had to put on my "big-girl panties" and proceed with this technique.

It works!
And, it's super easy and and quick, and it yields perfectly stitched Flying Geese units with no waste!

Below are step-by-step photos:

Voila, four perfectly-stitched Flying Geese units!

Now I have all kinds of Flying Geese quilts I want to make, including this one!

Also, Omnigrid makes a set of three 1/2" wide  x 4", 6" and 12" rulers that work great for marking the double stitching lines.  Clear here for the link.


  1. I like your photos - they really help. I've seen this method and wanted to try it - thanks!

  2. This is the only method I've ever used and it works very well. Any method that results in zero waste is a good thing to me.
