While it is not absolutely required, I recommend trimming the geese with the Mini Fit to Be Geese ruler by Open Gate Quilts. It’s my favorite way to make flying geese.

The Whit quilts were made with the following collections: No. 1 – Daydreams by Kate Spain for Moda Fabrics. No. 2 – Florence by Denyse Schmidt for Free Spirit ~ the background is Yarn-dyed Essex Linen in Black by Kaufman. No. 3 – Vintage Happy by Lori Holt for Riley Blake Fabrics.

Note: If the perfect charm packs are short on the type of print required for the design, I recommend using fat quarters for the backing and “borrowing” the necessary squares from there. Borrow from the binding fabric too.
