Flying Geese are everywhere in our March/April issue – plus, we’ve got a few freebies for you!
If you’ve picked up a copy of our March/April ’16 issue, you’ve no doubt noticed that several of the quilt patterns include the traditional units widely known as Flying Geese. There’s Susan Geddes’ dynamic On Course, which features Flying Geese in a chevron pattern; Scott Alan Flanagan’s foundation-pieced Twisted Geese, which showcases Flying Geese formed in spinning circles; and QM Associate Editor Diane Harris’ Swoopers, which combines Flying Geese with fun owl blocks. Diane also shares a helpful step-by-step how-to article in this new issue showing you the four different ways to make this common unit: Fast Flying Geese, Foundation Piecing, Stitch and Flip and Cutting Triangular Patches.
