Here is how you determine what size the fabrics should be:

Inside Triangle:  

Determine what size you want your finished flying geese unit and add 1 1/4″.

In the video I made 4 1/2″ finished flying geese unit. 4 1/2″ + 1 1/4″ = 5 3/4″ square of the fabric.

Cut one of these to yield 4 flying geese units.

Outside Triangles:

Determine the finished height of your flying geese unit and add 7/8″.

My finished height is 2 1/4″, so 2 1/4″ + 7/8″ = 3 1/8″ squares.

Cut four of these to yield four flying geese units.
