the next step is to draw another diagonal line…you can see it better on this dot fabric…
sew a 1/4 inch on either side…
cut on the line…open it up and press….

each unit opened up looks like this…

    Dots! I love dots! John always says, “All of our quilts should have some polka dot fabric in them.” We’re pretty close to making that true.

    I LOVE those floating geese. I have never seen them before, that I know of. I am totally interested in this project.
    Merry Christmas

    This is going to be awesome and not just because it has flying geese. I am really liking the green, blue and orange. As always, thank you for the linky party.

    Your geese are coming along nicely. I can always use dots. I love dots. LOL. I finished my last sewing project for Christmas yesterday. You have got this. You can do it. Have a very special and wonderful Christmas.

    I’ve never seen this method for flying geese before, is there a lot of waste?

    I’ve never seen this method either. I guess that’s the joy of quilting, there is always something new to learn. Merry Christmas from New Zealand, albeit a sunny, summery one (hopefully) in our case.

    I am anxious to see those colors put together. I’m done with my main Christmas sewing, but as always, I ran out of time to do some little things I’d had planned. Something else always pops up to take my time.
    Have a Merry Christmas!
