Haven't made my geese yet, I keep putting it off  -< I prefer the other way of making them ( hsts ) although I know this is correct. It always seems wasteful of fabric to me  -< I will do them properly though  :angel:

I know, what you mean, Low, that's why I have my own technique of no-waste-flying-geese, it just takes 1 or 2 hours for the test-series to achieve the right size. But then, it's quick and easy ;)

They're gorgeous Sakar ...thank you for sharing!

Yes Low, Do try them this way, they come out easily ... and you send all those lil left over 'ears' to ege and Shady and ask them if they're Too Small ?????

The 'ears' would make good confetti /applique for leaves of trees !?!

Promise Imi, I have done them like this before, I just hate "faff" and the ears would definitely be too small  :P

 It's not the way purists do it, but ( whispers ) it's much quicker and easier Rubes  ;) You wouldn't even frighten the ducks  :P

Says who? I always make flying geese with a qst and 2 hsts. (I don't see the point of wasting expensive fabric by cutting bits off the squares and rectangles) and no one has ever called me a purist - though there's always a first time :).
