Well I ended up with 2 extra geese.
& a top that did not work out as envisioned. I saw my geese all flying up.
1st problem, I did not press so that I could easily piece that way - up & down it is.
2nd problem, by virtue of the way a flying geese unit works, (1.5 x 2 or something like that) my geese are actually flying right & left.
Next problem, it is long enough, but not wide enough to be a lap robe/throw size quilt.
What border would you add to 1 or both sides, but not the top & bottom? (Or do a good job selling a top & bottom & both sides border.)
150-ish more flying geese does not sound like the right answer right now... (I did make the wonky ones & could trim enough of those down, but...)
Oh & it officially is both bigger that I thought & too small...
I thought that it would be 36 x 24 - ish (No idea where those numbers came from, but as I was piecing that sounded "right.")
Alternate solution: call it a long baby quilt & let it be finished. (I'm almost there considering that just flying geese is how I envisioned it & now a lot of my ideas feel like - just slap something on to make it bigger.)
