I've been quilting for 20 years and I still haven't mastered the flying geese. I just had to make some for a quilt I'm making and I ran out of fabric because I kept having to re-do them. I sew on the line I make on the back of the square and put the square in the corner of the rectangle and then put the other square on the other side and cut the back off (behind the squares) and it's the wrong size every time. I tried making it bigger and planned on cutting it down, but I would have lost my points. I lose my points anyway and they are always too small every which way. Is there a trick to making them? Is there another way? They are suppose to be 4 1/2 x 2 1/2 rectangles and I add 2 1/2" squares. Any help would be appreciated.
