    My current project called for over 100 flying geese. A friend went to a quilt show and saw this ruler. It's been great. I wanted to share this because I think it's a great investment and made making the flying geese much easier.
    It's called Deb Tucker's Wing Clipper.

    It looks very interesting but I really prefer either Ricky Tims or Eleanor Burns methods. I don't have a problem making my flying geese without any specialized ruler.

    I posted the above link a while ago when it was sent to me . I'm sure others had seen it before as well.
    I use this method, but it was easier to use this ruler to ensure the 1/4" than my regular ruler. I've also tried the Eleanor Burns ruler, on loan from a friend , but with this you only need the one ruler.

    I have tried Ricky's method and it is a bit bulky. I prefer the no waste method where you make 4 at a time.
