USING YOUR TEMPLATES 1
Choose your required finished size, and use the same marked line on each template when cutting your pieces. Cut strips of fabric to size from the top of the ruler to your chosen size line.
Align the marked line with the bottom of your strips, and trim along both sides of the large triangle template (Fig 1). Turn your template around to cut the next piece, matching up the diagonal edges (Fig 2). Keep working in this way until you have cut the required number of centre triangles for your project.
Use the bottom corners of the template to cut the bottom corners for the large triangle pieces (Fig 3).
Fold a strip of fabric in half, and use the small template to cut pieces two at a time (Fig 4). Cutting the pieces on folded fabric will yield two mirror image pieces (Fig 5). Trim the corners of the triangles as before.
Place one small triangle right sides together with a large triangle. Sew along the edge and press open. Place the second triangle on the other side, sew, and press open to complete one Flying Geese unit (Fig 6).
