    Wow, these are fun!!
    However, I need to make them smaller and can't figure it out!

    I was thinking half the size so the squares would be 1.5 inches but how do you halve 5.5??
    You don't get an even number.

    And I need more coffee..... that problem I can solve lol

    Thanks for any help!!

    I have had my coffee so the answer is....5.5/2=2.75 or 2 and 3/4 in.

    You can make the One Seam Flying Geese in any size using the following formula:
    Size of squares = 1/2 inch larger then the desired finished height of the overall unit.
    Height of rectangle = same as the squares you cut.
    Width of rectangle = width of the squares times two minus 1/2 inch.

    In other words, if you cut 2" squares you would cut the rectangle 2" x 3.5"

    Aren't I smart? NO. I found this info online. LOL

    Perfect!!! These really are fun and so easy- I'll probably make a whole bunch but actually they will look good with my top I just finished! The 2 inch came out really cute :thumbup:
