Flawless Flying Geese: a flip-and-trim technique

Flawless Flying Geese: a flip-and-trim technique

If you've ever tried sewing flying geese quilt patterns it's easy to find that they don't line up. The key to keeping them perfectly squared is to sew and fold onto the face and then flip it over. Any hanging edging should be carefully trimmed to bring it in line with the back fabric. It seems like a simple technique but it's actually ingenious since a little prep on each block will result in perfectly lined up geese when you're ready to apply to the pattern. Carol Hopkins shows exactly how in a video taken at the Quilt Market.

Key Takeaways:

  • Flying-geese units are a fun addition to quiltmaking, and there are lots of ways to make them
  • It is important to measure and pay attention to details, as a single misstep can ruin the quilt
  • Use small scissors to trim each piece carefully

"At spring Quilt Market, she showed us how she gets her flying-geese units to fly flawlessly into her quilts."
