Flying Geese ~ Perfect Points

Flying Geese Paper Piecing Templates at Fresh Lemons Quilts

Happy Saturday! Yesterday when I posted my rainbow geese sneak peek, I had several people comment and email me about how to I got my perfect points. I think most people traditionally piece their flying geese (and I have instructions for how to do that on my Radiant Splendor block tutorial).

When I first started making flying geese, I made them using the traditionally pieced method. But like some of you, I was never totally pleased with the results. (I can be a perfectionist at times.) Once I learned to paper piece, I decided to try paper piecing my flying geese. And not surprisingly, just like everything else that comes from paper piecing, they were perfection.

At the bottom of my Patterns and Tutorials page, I provide links to download the templates I use in various sizes. But just to make it easier for you, I am linking to them here as well. All the sizes listed are finished sizes. The templates do include the 1/4″ seam allowance around each flying geese paper piecing unit.

1″ x 2″ 2″ x 4″ 2-1/2″ x 5″ 1-3/4″ x 3-1/2″

As with all templates online, be sure to print at 100% or “Actual Size”. If you have never paper pieced before, I do have a tutorial for getting started.

I hope you enjoy them!
