    I use the EZ flying geese ruler and rarely have to trim more than just the top edge, if that. And no annoying little triangles to have to clip off. http://www.amazon.com/Wrights-4-Inch.../dp/B000PCWMVS

    Now if I could just find a tool this nifty to make perfect hst with no trimming....

    Nope, don't use any "specialty" rulers but if you want one and feel it would help you, then you should probably get one, but I'm way too tight with my money and there are easy ways to make them.

    I don't use a ruler either. I use Eleanor Burns method. It is easy and quick using two squares of fabric, one larger than the other is. You will have 4 flying geese units after doing some diagonal stitch and cutting similar to doing HST. The really neat thing is if you are off just a bit, you can actually make any corrections before you trim them down to size!!

    If you use this method you'll never need a ruler!

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    That's the easiest and fastest way I've ever found to make flying geese.

    I agree. I use quilt in a day geese rulers and love how fast they work up, and the trimming is so quick.
