My Folded Goose

Surgery sucks! Enough of that, it's over and I'm limping along.

I saw a YouTube about flying geese by making a sandwich using 3 pieces of fabric. Two sky pieces for bread and the goose in the middle. The goose is a folded rectangle sewn between the 2 sky pieces. I should of used a darker goose to photograph.
Open the sandwich and voila! Flying Geese.
As I was sewing and putting together these geese, I thought of a different way with less work both cutting and piecing and sewing.
Instead of 2 sky pieces, I made 1 long rectangle. I made mine 3 1/2 x 8 1/2. Cut the geese 3 1/2 x 5 1/2.

Finger press the sky in half, fold the goose in half and place it on top of the sky just a hair from the crease. Fold the sky back over and sew a 1/4 seam from the fold.
Open and spread out the goose.
Now I have more sky around the goose, which I like.
I made 6 rows of geese and attached them with the blue floral.
It wasn't long enough, so below are six more pieces.
Give my folded goose a try and let me know. I would love to see them.
