    So the pattern my dear bro decided on starts with: cut 1539 (1 3/4") squares. These are to be used....in making 700 odd flying geese. Does anyone have a good method of making multiple flying geese at a time? Have you done it? Any tips?

    I haven't tried it, but this video has been getting rave reviews. Pretty sure it's free to everyone:

    Might want to check out Jodi Barrow's Square N a Square technique....Or Deb Tucker's Wing Clipper technique...both require their rulers, but both techniques work really well....I'll be watching this posting to see what other's recommend as well...I'm working on a quilt that has almost 300...:) BTW, the quilt pattern is gorgeous!!

    the flying geese ruler is awesome, makes flying geese in a variety of sizes with NO waste. it is basically the no waste method, so if you know the finished size you need, you'd cut a large square, then four smaller squares. think there might be a tut on it somewhere, or do a google search. since it makes 4 from 1 square it goes pretty quick.

    that's a beauty of a quilt!

    Eleanor Burns method also turns out four at time, very accurate.

    oooh...I made a pattern similar to that as my first quilt..........yep...I hate making flying geese

    you could always do the 1/2 sq triangel method...and if you have an accuquilt to cut them...that would be even better

    even with all of the work....it was/is one of my favs...
