Skinny Flying Geese Quilt Block Video Tutorial

Learn how to sew up a fun quilt block that looks like skinny flying geese. Great for by itself or in a larger quilt block. Video tutorial instructions.

This is kind of a funky block and can be a little tricky when sewing it.

There are a few things that you’ll need to watch for so it turns out right.

Typically this block is put into a larger block. It’s not usually one that stands alone, even though it would be just fine by itself!

The measurements I used were just for the tutorial- you’ll need to watch the sizes you for the project you are making it for.

The quilt block size is 5″ unfinished


Materials Needed:

Fabric for center of flying geese

  • 1 – 5 3/4″ X 5 3/4″

Background for flying geese

  • 2- 6 1/4″ X 3 1/4″
