I've been piecing about 3 years and just in the last 9 months or so I've been doing some machine quilting. I have a pattern that calls for flying geese to be attached to a fussy cut 7.5 inch square. The directions are for traditional flying geese: 1 rectangle, 2 squares. But there is waste involved in this. I BUY plenty but this coming out of my stash and I'm afraid I may not have enough - sky or goose. So I'd like to try the 4 at a time Deb Tucker Wing Clipper method. My question is (before I buy the ruler and then find out I don't have enough fabric) What size strips do I cut for the geese and what size strips do I cut for the sky to end up with a 7.5 inch long geese block? After the block is in the quilt it will be 7.00 inches so, another question please, do I say a 7.5" finished geese block (for the block before it gets attached to a 7.5" square or do I say a 7 inch finished goose block for after it is in the sewn quilt?
