QUICK GEESE METHOD for making FLYING GEESE

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 of GOOSE.
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 illustrated.  
Stitch 1/4" either side of center, cut and press.  
This method yields 4 Flying Geese without sewing any triangles.

If you like this method check out Lazy Girl's 4X Flying Geese Ruler.  No math required.  You just need to know finished size of Goose and use the lines on the ruler for your cutting guides!
