Flying Geese by Four Tutorial

Just thought i'd pop in today and share this little tutorial i whipped up. I've been working on what has been temporarily dubbed my brilliant nut bag quilt and the first requirement was 156 geese. So while making the geese i figured i'd take some pics along the way and share how i like to make geese. Four at a time! Enjoy!














And this is the fruit of my labour, 156 of the most glorious geese i've ever made! I think i'm in love folks.

High fives for a fabulous start to my brilliant nut bag quilt, which i'm hoping to rename soon!

  1. I think this became my favourite geese method when I experimented a few months ago, good thing I blogged about it because I actually forget! How sticky is the washi tape? Does it leave a residue when you peel it off?

  5. we make our geese the same way! I do love this method and was a little nervous that it wasn't going to work out the first time i did it. Sometimes it doesn't seem possible to get to point C by doing A+B but i am always glad when it works out. You whipped up 156 geese so fast, and they are the prettiest geese i have ever seen!!! :)

  6. I have never used that method (most likely because I've hardly made any flying geese). I almost want to try it now just for fun because it looks so easy! Your geese are lovely by the way!

  7. Holy shemoly! Those are some epic geese. I find geese a bit overwhelming usually, and yours are, but they're also not, if hat makes any sense at all. Lol. They're just too beautiful to be overwhelming. Your nut bag quilt is going to be wonderful! (And yes, it will always be known as the nut bag quilt :-) )

  8. Thanks for the great tut! Those geese are looking great. And I think that quilts are like kiddos - once you name 'em, that's it. They're named. :)

  9. High five! Awesome start. What is the name of the painting that inspired you? It may also inspire the name of the quilt.

  13. Brilliant. I am inspired to have a go and fly with some geese! Not sure I'll manage 156 though. Thanks for sharing.
