Thread: Math whizzes needed- Making Ricky Tims HST smaller???

1. 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!!

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

3. 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

4. Hubs just came in with a Starbucks- biggest size :D

Sometimes my stupidity baffles me- thanks, friends!!

5. Thanks for the toot.....you have no idea how long I spent trying the same thing. And I am a reasonably intellegent person.

7. 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:
Thanks again, geniuses!! :D
