    I'm still learning on measurements and I really don't want to screw things up.

    With this diagram showing the finished measurements, and the cutting chart on the right side, are my cutting measurements for the dimensions needed in the diagram correct?

    I've only got a 12x9 area to work with. That's why the dimensions are not all in 1/4" increments

    There will be a 1/4" binding all around the outside to ensure that the 9x12 stay intact.

    Thanks,
    Tracy

    Ok...I"m not great at this, but no your dimensions are not right.

    C- you only need 4..not 6
    D...7/8" x 6/1/2"
    E 7/8" x 9 1/2"
    F 1 1/8" x 7 3/4"
    G 1 1/8" x 12 1/2"

    and I think that as it is...your dimensions are not 9 x 12 over all..but 12 x 12...now mind you...I have had only 1 cup of coffee. Just check it again to make sure....cause...I could easily be wrong!

    I just added the finished measurements from top to bottom, and they DO add up to 9". 7/8 + 5/8 + 1-1/2 + 3 + 1-1/2 + 5/8 + 7/8

    By making D only 7/8 instead of 1-1/8, that would only give me a 1/8" seam when connecting it to the BCB piece and to the F piece.

    For E & G pieces, if I add another 1/2" would't that put the total to 12-1/2 x 9-1/2?
    The total measurements can be no more than 12x9.

    FIXED: I see that my F was wrong....need to add another 1/4 to that

    Why only 4 geese (C)? There are 6 geese. 2 on top, 2 on bottom and 2 on the sides.

    Note, I am still using 1/4' seams. Also, that the 7/8" border around the outside will be having the 1/4" binding on it, so that will knock the pattern down to 5/8" to match the inner border.

    Found another error too:
    E needs to be cut at 10-3/4 and not 9-1/2 (becasue of the added D pieces)
    That would make finished E at 10-1/4"

    With your changes to E and F, I get the same measurements as yours. Good job! :)

    Your piece will FINISH to 9 x 12?

    The binding is included in this dimension?

    :oops: Well...I told you I could be wrong...but its never a bad thing to check it again, is it?

    I am an idiot...I totally didn't see the FG on the sides to count this morning. In my defense..I did tell you that I hadn't had enough coffee... :oops: :oops:

    Please show us the finished product...it looks like it will be cool!

    Um, not sure, and not as experienced as some on here, but did you add in the HST's or smaller geese below/above/to the sides of the Flying Geese or the 3 x 3" center square accounting for the 6 in the directions?
    Out of one-1 1/2"x 3" block you get two geese because you cut it in half. This accounts for the 6 larger geese. You then cut three of these in half again for the smaller triangles. The pattern requires a total 6 which makes sense.
    As far as the measurements, I am not that good at the math part. Just ask my math teacher :roll: :oops:



    The red parts are what I am speaking about . Does this help?

    Can you possible upload that file again in a different format? Like a PDF file? I don't have Word, nor do I have a converter for a docx file, and I'd prefer not to install a program just to convert one file.
    Thanks so much.

    I can convert the file.......but it seems to be the whole page and not just the diagram..
    If that's ok, I'll attach it ?

    The PDF file worked. Thanks.

    Now...as for your question:
    Where you put the 2 red triangles, yes...that will be part of one of the geese. The 2 red triangles and the other part (where the words are presently) will be a one flying geese (or should I say one goose :P )

    Does that make sense?
