Ready for trimming
The first 2 adjacent cuts leave a 1/4" seam allowance
The last 2 adjacent cuts do not leave a seam allowance
to allow for a cut through the middle of the purple center square from point to point
which make 2 separate geese units
Only 63 flying geese units left to sew together!
For those familiar with the SNS method and have the ruler w/instructions, I can save you a little time by giving you the measurements I used to make the center square and side strip units to create the flying geese, so here you go:
Center square cut: 3" x 3" *
Side strips cut: 1 3/4" x wof *
* These measurements INCLUDE seam allowances and are raw measurements, meaning these are the exact measurements I used to cut my fabrics prior to sewing the units together. Please check my math and cut at your own risk!
Here's Jodi demonstrating a few of the options available w/her SNS method, including Option #3 flying geese (Please Note: I am NOT affiliated in any way shape or form, just sharing tools, methods, and ideas that I use and enjoy ;-):
And here they all are stored with the first three parts of Easy Street:
I added a smaller container for the extra fabric units
Bonnie's had us cut along the way,
including the (145) 3 1/2" apple green squares...
looks like I need to get another container for Part V!
For now, time for some shut-eye - I still have tons of presents to wrap and ship, need to finish my SID work on the Jungle Elephant quilt (thank goodness, now it doesn't need to be done until Friday!), I'm halfway through and really need to make some serious headway later today ;-)
See you on 'Monday Mystery link-up'...
