Color #1 & Color #2 (geese & sky parts)
- 6 triangles cut with Companion Angle (CA) 1 1/2" strip
- 12 triangles cut with Easy Angle (EA) 1 1/2" strip
- 1 - 2 1/2" X 6 1/2" rectangle
sew a triangle cut with the EA to the triangles cut with the companion angle. I sewed 6 triangles of each color to the opposite color cut with the CA. I like to press the first seam toward the larger piece (goose). Once again, this is just how I like to do it. Next add the other triangles of the same color to the other side. I press this seam toward the smaller triangle (sky).
You need to make 12 of these! Square them up if necessary to 1 1/2" X 2 1/2" You should try to keep your 1/4" seam allowance at the point.
Sew the triangles together in pairs. I like to sew with the piece that has the point on top (like in the first picture), so that I can aim for "X" where the overlap is. Join all six of each color. I pressed away from the point - or toward the base of the goose. The column of flying geese should measure 2 1/2" X 6 1/2".
Join the remaining 3 pieces to complete the block. It should measure 6 1/2". If you are having problems with your pieces coming out the right measurements, there are a couple of different geese square up rulers available that you may want to try.
