The quilt is mostly flying geese, which is fine, but the technique for making those flying geese is the 4-in-1 method which I have seen but never tried. I was a bit trepidatious but I went for it anyway.
If you have not seen this method before, I took pictures of each step so you could see what I mean by the alternative method.
|Draw a line with pencil across the two small white squares.|
|Sew 1/4" on either side of the line.|
|Press. (They look really weird at this step. Like this will never work and what-have-I-done).|
|Place another square and draw a line through the middle of that one, then sew on both sides again.|
|Another slice. Here you can see that maybe this will work after all.|
|Ta da! Here is a flying geese (goose?) unit after pressing. You end up with four.|
|Stacks of flying geese turn into...|

Have you ever tried this method? What were your results?
