Did You Know?
Did you know… if you have ANY From Marti Michell right angle triangle template and it is to be used as the small triangle in a Flying Geese unit, you can also cut the large triangle with the same template? The reason is the unique and very special double-blunt corners on our acrylic templates.
Cutting any “plus” triangle Illustrated with template B-9
1. Cut the first side. Nip the point.
2. Cut the second side.
3. Nip the point.
No dog ears when you use our engineered corners! Get rid of several layers of extra bulk at one time with your rotary cutter.
Are you familiar with this popular method for making Flying Geese? Using this method means cutting and discarding almost twice as much fabric as needed for each Flying Geese unit. It’s cheaper and easier to cut and sew 3 triangles rather than throw away 4! = Stop throwing these away!
When we published More Bang for the Buck there were 31 sizes of right triangles in the From Marti Michell template line and that didn’t include the unique sizes in the new Multi-Size Half Square Triangle, the Nine Patch Companion Tool Set, and the Small Flying Geese Ruler shown below.

Use this ruler to make Flying Geese units for blocks, borders and entire quilts!
Cut both sizes of Flying Geese triangles in 5 sizes! Make Flying Geese units in 2½" x 5" to 4½" x 9" finished sizes.
Cut strips the perfect width, then use the same ruler to cut the small triangles…
…and the large triangles!
You loved the Flying Geese Ruler so much, NOW you can cut even more sizes!
