    about a month ago someone posted a link to a flying geese tutorial video by some company that makes plastic templates. I watched it and thought it was great. thought i had it stuck in my head. now i can't remember the site let alone the directions. Does this sound familiar to anyone? What site was it on? I think she started with two squares, one larger than the other, sewed them diagonally and then flipped them somehow and sewed again. wound up with at least two sets of flying geese. but no matter how i flip them it doesn't work. can anyone help me?

    I don't know about the video, however I've been making flying geese today using my favorite method. It sounds like it might be what you're talking about. Here's a link.

    Eleanor Burns method is the best and I use it all the time.
    I have both of the geese rulers, they make it much easier to square up.
    She skips some of the instructions sometimes. One thing you do is make sure that both fabric squares have the same grain stretch matched.
    After the final cross cut and you have 4 geese triangles fold the triangle in half and clip to the stiches at the fold then you iron the seams away from the goose so it lays flat nicely.
    Then you trim with the ruler for the size you made.
    There is a formula for figuring the size squares to use in the Star Spangled Favorites video. You will need to have QNNTV to watch and it costs 24 bucks a year.
    Her website has changed so go to the upper right corner of the screen where the search button is and type in video that will take you to a screen where you look at the options on the left of the screen and pick television and video. That will take you to the video choices screen.

    i went to the site and they have a new layout. look at the bars across the top and click on television and videos. then you will see a list of videos and click on the flying geese one.

    let me know if you don't get it. or send me your e mail and i can send it to you that way.

    I didn't see the video but that is the method I used to create a border on Tricia's round robin block. Its much easier than any other method I have ever used. I made the samller ones sice my pattern required stackin two of them on top of each other. Its surpisingly easier and very accurate!
