Workshop notes

Flying Geese

Cut one rectangle and two squares for each unit.

Rectangle: 16.5cm (6½in) x 9cm (3½in)

Squares: 9cm (3½in) squares

1. Fold one rectangle in half Right Side (R/S) out forming a 9cm (3½in) x 8.25cm (3¼in) shape.

2. Place on one 9cm (3½in) square (R/S up) aligning the folded edge of the rectangle exactly 0.75cm (¼in) from top of the square; match raw edges; pin in place. Lay another square on top ‘sandwiching’ it.

3. Stitch the pinned side, i.e. down the folded side of the rectangle, using 0.75cm (¼in) S/A. Turn section to Wrong Side (W/S), open the entire seam and press, flattening the little ‘nose’ at the top of the inserted rectangle. Press the seam only; try not to crease the rectangle.

4. On completion, open the rectangle, pull the two corners of the rectangle apart and flatten the shape. Amazingly there is a triangle! Pin and baste close to the raw edge.

5. Roll the edge in a complete scallop, or secure the mid point of the folded edge to the background square then roll both sides to form a double scallop. For more textural interest, tuck a folded square of some sort into the pocket beneath the triangle. Stitch in place by hand or machine.

This is a fun, simple flying geese technique that has only one seam to sew and NO TRIANGLES are involved.   Cut rectangles and squares, simple chain piecing and there you are.

You also get the great 3D effect that can then be twiddled and fiddled.
