I’ve been hanging out to show you these!
And for those of you who enquired, the cutting sizes for The Aunts’ Quilt flying geese are
:: goose fabric (big triangle) is a square cut at 4 3/4 inches
:: sky fabric (small triangles) is four squares cut at 2 5/8 inches
For those mathematically minded and wanting to work out your own sized geese, the methodology is
:: add 1 1/4 inches to the finished width of the flying geese unit required – this is the goose fabric – and cut one square this size
:: add 7/8 inch to the finished height of the flying geese unit required – this is the sky (or background) fabric – and cut four this size.
I always do a test unit before going crazy with the cutting, just to make sure I’ve done the additions correctly!!
For my little tutorial with GJ and Heather, I was going to draw up some instructions, but trawling the net, I found this brilliant site by Patti R Anderson already done, so I’m doing as she asks and telling my friends where I found the instructions! Perfect!
Have fun with your flying geese, my lovelies!
