This is a pretty easy way to make four flying geese blocks at a time. Also, it keeps you from having to deal with stretchy bias edges.
These instructions will make flying geese that measure 3.5" x 6.5"
I'll give an alternate size at the end of the tutorial.
You will need two fabrics. One for the goose, and one for the background.
Cut a 9" square for the background and a 7.5" square for the goose.
Press open, pressing seam toward larger (background) triangle.
Time to trim out the geese.
If you have
the Flying Geese Quilt in a Day ruler - great, use that. If not, no problem, I don't either, and I'll show you how to
trim up your geese. You will need a ruler that has a 45 degree line on it and is at least as large as your goose. I used a 12.5" square ruler.
First, line up your 45 degree angle on on side of the goose - centering the 3.25" line at the point.
For geese that are 2.5" x 4.5" Start with a 5.5" square on top of a 7" square. Peak will center at 2.25".
Thank you. Now i'm ready to give it a go.
