Clue 2




Traditional piecing:

Cut 32 squares  2 7/8 of dark colour #3 cut from one corner to the other to form 2 triangles from one square. You should have 64 large triangles.

 Cut 32 3 ¼” dark color #1 squares and cross cut them so one square forms 4 triangles. You should have 128 small triangles

Sew small triangles to one edge of the large triangle press open sew triangle to other edge to form flying geese and press.

Make 64 flying geese.

Sew 4 together into a strip making 16 strips.

Units will look like this.
But all the geese will be the same colour.

sorry for taking so long with this clue life has been a bit crazy trying to get the house renovated.
