Design Wall Monday

On my design surface today are piles of flying geese in gray and brown and aqua and burnt orange.

These piles will become twosies and then foursies; each print has three foursies which equals twelve geese in each print and there are nine different prints so that makes--a whole lotta geese to fly on my grandson-to-be's baby quilt!  His mommy and daddy bought and assembled his crib today so this Mimi-to-be needs to get these twosies and foursies finished so the game of Layout and Switcheroo can take place on the way to a finished quilt top.  This fast geese method is the best!

I agree, that flying geese method is the best and they seems to multiply much faster doing them that way :) I do this method but following the "wing clipper" directs where you cut the squares a little bigger, then trim them down using the "wing clipper" ruler. LOVE the colors your using!

Lots of geese in your future, Mimi-to-be (WooHoo)!
I must say, they look very crisp and precise. Nice job!

My tool box has 3 or 4 different rulers to make my flying geese construction easier (according to designers' promises), but your favorite method is my favorite too. I keep going back to this one.
This is going to be one sweet baby quilt.

Your flying geese look great. I agree the method you are using is my absolute favorite for making them.
