    How do your geese fly?

    I'm just curious as to which method is your favorite to make flying geese? I have tried four different ways and I'm wondering which one works the best for you.

    Below is my favorite way.....I like it because it makes FOUR at once and each one is perfect.

    After you make one set it is so easy and you can do it without much effort at all. I bought the rulers on Amazon at a good price.

    I do a rectangle with two squares. Cut down and use the scraps as leader and ender HST.

    Since I've been using the "no waste method" my geese have been flying pretty well.
    Try different methods until you find one that you like.
    Deb Tucker has a nice video on Youtube with similar method but you have to buy
    her ruler too.
    I just bought the "Fit to be Geese" ruler but haven't used it yet.
    Sounds like a nice ruler for squaring FG.

    I use Eleanor Burn's geese ruler and my geese come out perfect every time.

    Me too, and if I have to make them another way I make them oversized and use Eleanor Burn's geese ruler to trim them.

    When life gives you scraps, make a quilt.

    I liked the way Bonnie Hunter did hers, with the Ez angle ruler and the Companion ruler. I already had the Ez angle, and I just got the companion for 3.99 at Joanns on sale.

    I use the go baby cutter. One rectangle and two triangles, cut off the extra. If I iron correctly they're good.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.
