Step 1: Make Flying Geese
Use your favorite method to make flying geese. Make 8. These are going to be 2-1/8″ x 4-1/4″ finished, or 2-5/8″ x 4-3/4″ unfinished.
If you don’t have your own preferred method, use the following pieces to make them.
Fabric 1: Cut 4 – 4-1/4″ squares. Cut these on the diagonal twice to yield 16 triangles.
Fabric 2 – Cut 4 – 3-7/8″ squares. Cut these on the diagonal once to yield 8 triangles.
Step 2: Make Strips to Attach to Flying Geese
Fabric 1: Cut 24 – 2-5/8″ x 7-1/4″ rectangles. On one end, cut at a 45 degree angle. NOTE: Do these in pairs so that one is the reverse image of the other. I find it easier to lay two strips, wrong sides together and cut the angle. Then you have two pieces that are correct.
Fabric 2: Cut 12 – 3-7/8″ squares. Cut these on the diagonal once to yield 24 triangles.
Sew a Fabric 2 triangle to the diagonal cut end of the Fabric 1 rectangle. Make 12 plus 12 that are reverse.
NOTE: Stick 4 of each of these aside for the Corner Triangles.
Sew the remaining strips to each side of the flying geese as shown below. Make 8.
Ah, flying geese, my favorite!
