    I have watched Elanor Burns use her QIAD flying geese rulers so many times and it looks so easy that when I had a chance to buy a set cheap off ebay, I ordered them. I have not had a chance to use them yet. I got the large and small sizes. I like the idea of making them a little oversized and trimming them down because somehow I always get the goose's "beak" too close to the edge and the point gets cut off. Looks like there are a lot of ways to do them.

    Check out Bonnie Hunter's site. She makes them with the companion angles rulers and there is no waste.

    I use Deb Tucker's Wing Clipper also! I have the quilt in a day ruler also, but it is limited to two sizes. The wing clipper has several sizes you can make with the one ruler.

    I've tried other rulers, but this is the best.

    There are a couple of flying geese rulers out there but according to all my quilting friends they all say that the Deb Tucker Flying Geese ruler is the best. I do love it. I tend to make my blocks a wee bit larger and trim them down using this ruler. Another great ruler is the Tucker Trimmer. I don't purchase all rulers and I have found that both these rulers are worth the investment.

    Eleanor Burns flying geese rulers that come in a set of two. Bought at JoAnne's with a coupon. Mom and I were having a dickens of a time until we bought those rulers and finished quickly!

    I use Eleanor Burns ruler and it goes fast. You can also do her method and not necessarily use her ruler.
