Conrad and some flying geese

 I have been making flying geese using the Flying Geese X 4 ruler by Lazy Girl Designs. I wanted to make lots of them to see if they turn out consistently the same size. Most people seem to shy away from them because they sometimes turn out a little wonky using the stitch and flip method. I have developed a method of squaring them up that works well, but since making them this way is faster, I wanted to test it. Using this method, you make 4 at a time. The ruler makes 4 Flying Geese  from sizes  ¾" x 1 ½" through 
½ " x 7" with each repeat of this very easy technique. I have been making 3" x 6" right now....though I want to try some other sizes too. 
I am using some of the leftover fabrics from the newest version of Peas in a Pod. Now I am just playing with them to come up with a way to use them now that they are made!

When they come up with a Project Runway type show about quilting, I am definitely going to send Conrad to the auditions...he looks great posing with any type of quilt!
