    New (to me) Tool I Found Helpful for Flying Geese Type Blocks

    I walked into a class last week with all of my pieces cut up, ready to sew. I informed the instructor that I did not want to draw lines on the back of my little squares in preparation for making my 160 flying geese blocks. I don't want to draw the lines, I don't like drawing the lines, etc.

    As I was preparing to figure out how to lay tape on my machine so I'd have a straight edge to run the corner of my little sqaure along as I sewed it to the rectangle, the instructor suggested this tool. It was relatively short money and will do more than just one thing so I did purchase it with my class discount.

    I have to say that I've never had an easier time getting those little squares sewn on so they fold over near-perfectly. Usually, I'm resewing many of them. I only had to resew a half-dozen or so.

    It's called the Angler 2.

    I taped it to the machine in four places - two strips of tape in front and two in back. I was able to lift it from the front, leaving it secured in the back so it would go right back into place.

    I have one of those, and yes, it does make it easier for flying geese, snowball, and square in a square.
