This tutorial is for a scrappy flying geese throw quilt that finishes around 72” x 76”.
This pattern is written to make a scrappy quilt. I will list out the number of each fabric piece you will need, and then will give cutting instructions for fatquarters.
My focus is on variety of fabrics, not getting the most out of fatquarters or yardage that you may be using, so following these instructions, you will have extra fabric left over.
I will also mention that I like to sew my geese blocks a little large, and then use a ruler to trim them down to the correct size.

Assembling the Geese Blocks
To make your geese blocks, you will need your geese rectangles (blue), and the background squares.
Place a background square on top of the geese block, (right sides together), and stitch diagonally as shown below. Trim ¼” from your stitch line and press. Repeat with a second background square on the other side of your goose rectangle. The last step in making your flying goose block is to trim it to 4 ½” x 8 ½”. I use a bloc lock ruler for this step.
