Flying geese is a traditional quilt block pattern created from sewing a triangle at each end of a rectangular base so that a peak is formed at the block’s midpoint. The rectangle can subsequently be trimmed to fit into a square block pattern. A finished Flying Geese block looks like stacks of triangles, reminiscent of geese flying in formation. Flying geese are typically used as accents or borders to quilts, but can be used for an entire quilt pattern.
