Individual Flying Geese FPP Templates

Use these Individual Flying Geese FPP templates to make beautiful and accurate quilt blocks!

Flying Geese quilt blocks are a real classic and they look great on their own, multiplied several times over or indeed joined with other shapes to create new block styles.

The challenge with Flying Geese blocks though is that there are some seams that run diagonally across the grain of the fabric. If not treated carefully these bias edges can stretch out of place a little and before you know it, you are wondering why you no longer have perfect points!

This is where sewing on a foundation can really help you. The foundation gives you a printed line to sew along and keeps your fabrics nice and stable i.e. in exactly the right position. This means that you are much more likely to end up with a perfect quilt block!

Working with templates means you don’t have to worry so much about:

  • overly precise cutting of lots of squares and triangles
  • sewing an accurate 1/4″ seam allowance
  • dealing with bias edges

The other great thing about working with templates is that you can create really accurate blocks even on a small scale. Tiny piecing is a skill in itself but you can achieve the look by ‘cheating’ and using a foundation, rather than going it alone!

Learn a little more about these FPP Templates...

The individual Flying Geese FPP templates are a print at home pdf file. The download includes 17 different sizes of flying geese units. This gives you so many options for all sorts of projects.

All of the templates have a 1/4″ seam allowance included around the outside edges. This means that it is easy to join them with other elements as you would do normally when patchworking.

My best piece of advice though is to reduce the ‘inner’ seam allowance (when you are constructing the block) to 1/8″ on the smaller units sizes. This will make construction easier and will reduce the amount of bulk created by the excess fabric.

Each of the 17 flying geese unit sizes have been laid out on its own page so that you can print out just the size you need, which means you are not wasting paper.

Speaking of paper, the template pages have been laid out so that they print out on both A4 or US Letter paper. All you need to do is ensure that you are printing out ‘Actual Size’ and you should be good to go, regardless of the paper size you are using.

In addition, the smaller unit sizes have multiple templates to a page, which makes things efficient for you, should you be making multiple or longer strips.

There’s a handy chart in the instructions that summarises the flying geese unit sizes, pages and number of units per page.
