Method 1: Using a Rectangle of One Fabric and Two Squares of a Contrasting Fabric
To determine what size of rectangle to cut, add 1/2” to the finished height and width of the Flying Geese unit. Cut two squares the same size as the height of the triangle. For example, for a 1-1/2 x 3” finished Flying Geese unit, cut a 2x3-1/2” rectangle and 2” squares.
Use a quilter’s pencil to mark a diagonal line on the wrong side of each square. To prevent the fabric from stretching as you draw the lines, place 220-grit sandpaper under the square.
Note: Instead of drawing a line, you may press the squares in half diagonally.
