It is also possible to do this as a quilt as you go.

SIX COLOURS, 2 ½ INCHES BY WOF (MAKE SURE AT LEAST ONE STRIP IS 42 USABLE INCHES).

The quilt in the picture is 54" square (9 x 9 = 81 geese blocks). My instructions will be for a lap size which is 54" x 66" (9 x 11 = 99 geese blocks)
Accurate cutting is a must for this quilt.
Rulers are required:
6 1/2" square and
10" square (to accurately cut your 7 1/2" square blocks)
Additional, but not necessary are the Flying Geese rulers. There is one made by Eleanor Burns and Wing Clipper by Deb Tucker. I will have both with me to demonstrate if anyone should have them.
The lap size will require 3 1/2 yards of Background either solid or tone on tone.
Add 1/2 yard of the same fabric if you plan on doing binding in same fabric.
25 - 7 1/2" squares of various fabrics. Each square makes 4 Geese
This may help:
Fat Quarter (18" x 22") will produce 4 - 7 1/2" squares which makes 16 Geese
Fat Eighth (9" x 22") will produce 2 - 7 1/2" squares which makes 8 Geese
Cut 25 - 7 1/2" squares of various fabrics
This quilt can be made larger by simply adding additional blocks. Just make sure to aquire additional background fabric and 7 1/2" squares.
I hope this helps.
