Flying Geese the Inklingo Way

The Inklingo No Waste Flying Geese method is fast, accurate and easy, easy, easy! There are no stretchy bias seams to deal with, and I get to make 4 units at a time. For me it’s just plain old magical. Watch how simple this method is:

If you’re like me and also like written instructions, Linda details sewing and pressing tips for all kinds of triangles, including Flying Geese on pages 10-11, in her downloadable PDF Triangle Tips. Linda also wrote an article for Quilting Hub detailing this Flying Geese method.

My Flying Geese finish at 2×4 inches. Remember all Inklingo shapes are named by their finished size, so I’ll be using 2 inch HSTs, printed, and 5.25 inch unprinted squares. How did I know which size unprinted square to cut? Linda makes it so easy, I don’t even have to do the math. In every collection that has HSTs in it, on the first page of HST information in the Catalogue of Shapes, Linda notes what size unprinted square is needed if I am using that HST for Flying Geese. In the scan below, I’ve drawn a red box around the information, in the lower left corner:

FREE Inklingo Diamond/Triangle/Square collection. Download and try it.)

If you want to know how to do the math anyway for the unprinted square size, Linda teaches it on page 10 in the Triangle Tips PDF mentioned above.
