    Wow I thought I was doing good making the 4 at a time with the fancy flying geese ruler. This is fantastic. Thanks so much for sharing.

    Thank you the explanation. I am definitely putting this on my to do list. It's amazing how math can play a part in our quilting calculations. I won't be able to test it any time soon. I have to finish half of my UFO's before I can start any new projects...my rule to myself because I got totally out of control with almost 50 of them....Got 9 done, still have 16 to go. 8 are ready to quilt. I am making great progress this year, but don't look to start anything new until 2016, if then. Happy quilting!

    For a 5 x 2-1/2" flying geese unit (5-1/2 x 3 raw size):
    take the long dimension and square it (i.e. 5-1/2 squared would be 30-1/4)
    divide that in half (15-1/8)
    take the square root of that (4 when you round up)
    add seam allowance to give you a 4-1/2" strip for the geese and a 5-1/4" strip for the sky (always 3/4" larger).

    So your Step 3 strips would be 4-1/2" wide

    I haven't tested this though - let me know if it works for you!

    Presented like a true designer with understandable directions. I hope you continue to share your "worksheets." Thank you.
