Following the Connecting Threads tutorial again, but this time cutting all the dimensions in half, should give me some half size geese units, shouldn't it?!? Look at all the math I had to do:
I made two new sets of flying geese units using the dimensions I figured out and here's how they turned out -
They were a little bit more than half of my original units. Looking back at the tutorial, and at my chicken scratches, I just realized that my mistake wasn't in the math, it was in getting confused between the "actual" size of the blocks and the "finished" size! Oh well, that is how you learn, right? It's a good thing I am just playing and not making something for an actual pattern.
Adding some solid strips and squaring up helps a lot!
And playing again with a layout (maybe for a red, white, and blue table topper for my dining room table), shows the new possibilities!
I'll be sharing over at Oh Scrap! at Quilting is More Fun than Housework tomorrow!
