Tips to Make Pain-Free Triangle-Squares and Flying Geese

Jody Sanders shows you how to make triangle-squares and Flying Geese units with squares instead of triangles. This technique allows you to make more units in less time and with no wasted fabric!

Formula for 8-at-a-Time Triangle-Squares:

Finished size of triangle-square + 7/8".

Multiply that number by 2.

Cut two squares of fabric that measurement.

 

Example: For 2" finished triangle-squares

2" + 7/8" = 2-7/8"

2-7/8" x 2 = 5-3/4"

Cut two squares 5-3/4".


Formula for No-Waste Flying Geese (Makes 4 Units):

One large square the size of finished width + 1-1/4"

Four small squares that are the height of the finished unit + 7/8".

 

Example: For 2" x 4" finished Flying Geese Units

Cut: 1--5-1/4" square from background fabric.

Cut: 4--2-7/8" squares for side triangles.
