    Flying Geese

    Yes, there are many methods and I have looked at them all. One large square, four small squares; two squares; square and triangles and so on.
    Here is my question - if you know how to make an economy block and you could cut that in half, won't you get two flying geese blocks? Is there a flaw here that I cannot see?
    Because making an economy block seems easy and straightforward, flying geese not so much.

    I think it's because the large piece, or the center of the economy block, once you cut it in half, would end up on the bias. That would be on the long edge of the flying geese unit, and you don't want bias there! At least in my mind, this is what happens!

      Check out Eleanor Burns. She does a flying geese like that. I tried it but it drove me nuts. She always makes pieces bigger than necessary, then goes back and cuts them to the exact size. I just want to get it right the first time. You might like this method.
