QUICK GEESE METHOD for making
Quick Geese Method
- Use 1 large and 4 small squares. Most patterns will direct you
to cut one large square and tell you to sub-cut it twice diagonally
and 4 small squares and cut each once diagonally. Do not sub-cut into triangles
as directed in pattern. But you can use these squares as
they are the correct measurements.
RULES for cutting
squares: LARGE SQUARE is 1-1/4" larger than finished length
of GOOSE. SMALL SQUARE is 7/8" larger than finished height
FLYING GEESE are always twice as long as they are wide.
Place 2 small squares on top of large square and stitch 1/4" either side of
center as illustrated above. Use the Quick
Quarter II for accurate marking.
Cut down center and press small triangles away from large
triangle. Lay small squares on "nose of fox" as
Stitch 1/4" either side of center, cut and press.
This method yields 4 Flying Geese without sewing any triangles.
