I was going through some magazines from last year and saw a quilt made by Catherine Hughes that had a block in it that contained different kind of Flying Geese units, the background of the geese were half square triangles. I decided to Tuckerize it, which meant I would use my favorite Studio 180 Design Tools.
I decided to make a 10″ finished size block containing a 5 1/2″ center square. The Studio 180 Design method of making flying geese using the Wing Clipper 1 uses one large square and four small squares. For this project the small squares would be half square triangles instead of just squares. The cut size of the flying geese would be 3″ by 5 1/2″. To determine what my large square and small squares should be I checked the chart that comes with the Wing Clipper 1. I cut the large square 6 1/2″. The cut size of the small squares should be 3 1/2″. Now I went to the chart that comes with my Tucker Trimmer I. For half square triangles that finish 3″ the cut size is 3 1/2″ which meant my starter squares should be 4″. Whew that was a mouthful! For 3 blocks I cut 6 red – 4″ squares and 6 black – 4″squares.
