You saw my recent quilt in Quiltmaker.
a fun scrappy flying geese quilt that I designed in EQ7
My scrappy finished top isn’t quite the same but the geese are flying right, I just moved the colors around a bit.
Since I knew I wanted to use the GO geese die, that one is 6” x 3” finished, so a double block is 6x6 I then decided on a 7 x 9 layout
If you search in the library for flying geese you’ll quickly get the first 50 blocks, I chose the double one called flying geese 1
I added it to the layout
Then started turning the geese around
by holding down ALT and using the rotate button I clicked on the first block and it rotated every other block
Then I went back and manually flipped/ rotated every 4th one at a diagonal
Then comes the fun part of coloring the geese, I wanted it scrappy but at least the wings of each goose unit would be the same just like the EQ block
I colored the whole thing and added the border, with 3” x 6” geese, I thought a finished 1 1/2” border and 3” border would look good!
Here’s a different version I sent to Quiltmaker
But they/we decided on this one
I used 7 colors for both, but you can just as easily use 3
If you do only 4 sets of colors, then all the geese that go up are one color and all that go down are one color etc.
Geese are simple and fun!
