Maybe not the best way but if they are not too big I paper piece them. They come out perfect. I did a row of mini ones once and the PP was spot on.
Mel, if you need a lot of geese, the 4-at-a-time method works very well. Lots of tutorials on line with clear instructions.

the no waste method works well but a few tips.
STARCH that fabric BEFORE you cut the squares.
draw the lines and sew as ACCURATELY as you can.
Press the triangles open without stretching on the bias - finger pressing first helps.
If you do this, they will come out correctly. If you skip or fudge, they won't.
Oh, I agree with you, Ami, about paper piecing flying geese...nice crispy points and always the right size....
yes, I've paper pieced them many times...just takes forever!
But sometimes a "forever" process is what is needed for precise results.
The label on the back of one of my "forever" quilts itemizes the pieces of fabric, the weeks it took to make it, etc. If you keep track of all the steps you can include the data in your label.
