    Default What size flying geese to fit border

    I just need to ask anyone that has done the flying geese to fit a border. I'm trying to do flying geese to fit my 4 inch border. I made a couple practice geese following Jenny's "Take Flight" tutorial. She used 5 inch squares and that did not work. Anybody made these fitting a border? Am I going about it the wrong way? I'm open to any suggestions from my forum friends. I hate for this to defeat me. I put together the deer panel with a narrow inner border and adding an outer border, 4 inches. Just thought flying geese would be fitting for this type of panel. Thanks again.

    Maybe this cheat sheet will help you. There's also a video showing how to measure for the geese. It's about about 2:45 min. mark.

    In a class from my guild: make your flying geese border then make a small inner border the size needed to make it all fit together correctly.

    Thanks Claire. Unfortunately I already cut my outer borders 4" wide and now I'm trying to fit the flying geese to that. The sizing charts are as clear as mud to me. Donna Jordan has a good tutorial but it's for a 5" border. I just have to figure out what dimensions to use for a 4" border. Very complicated!
