    How to Make Flying Geese Any Size You Want - No Complicated Math - No Special Templates

    Flying Geese are made of
    a combination of half & quarter square triangles.

    These are typical measurements you would see in patterns for Flying Geese.

    With ⅞" seam allowances added for HSTs and 1¼"added for QSTs, the measurements don't make any sense.

    In finished sizes, the QST is simply twice as big as the HSTs

    The measurement used for an HST is always the short sides.

    And the measurement used for a QST is always the long side.

    In finished sizes, it's so simple to make Flying Geese any size you want.

    Just make the QST twice as big as the HSTs.
