I have a project in mind that is going to use many large Flying Geese units made from Half Square Triangles. I’m using two half square triangles that have been squared up to 4 1/2″ containing different dark or medium fabrics to make my large flying geese units.
Press one to the dark and one to the light.
I’m going to arrange these into dark flying geese units for now.
But you could also arrange the units to form light flying geese units.
When sewing these units together, place the unit pressed to the light on the right and the one pressed to the dark on the left. Then when sewing these units together, your sewing machine will help nestle the seams by forcing the top seam into the bottom seam.
I sew them together and press the seam open to reduce the bulk. I have used these large flying geese units before in several quilts and enjoy making them. This large flying geese unit measures 4 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ unfinished.
A while ago I started looking at these units in a new way and decided to play around with them by cutting them in half. Now I have Top Units and Bottom Units that measure 2 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ unfinished.
Coming up in my next blog I will reveal what I am going to do with these new units!
