    I will also use oddball units as markers. So if I am doing a high volume of unit A, for every 20 A, I will insert a unit B. it speeds up the counting process. Count the unit B and multiply to get numer of A completed. When I press I cut out the unit B to make smaller kites of 20 A. And I will safety pin completed units together by 20. Anything to avoid counting higher than 100 more than necessary.

    I love the videos Bonnie put up with her instructions today. I always did well with the pictures that she would add, ut this makes it easier for those who don't know how to use them. My daughter had fun watching her too I will have to make sure I cut those extra rectangles so that maybe it will make another week easier.

    I found an easy way to make flying geese if you don't have the rulers. Have one 4 1/2 inch purple square and 4 different b/w 2 3/8 inch squares. Mark on a diagonal on the 2 3/8 squares. Lay 2 squares on opposite corners of the purple square and sew 1/4 inch on each side of your mark. Cut on the mark. Press and it will look like a heart. Place another marked square on the bottom of the heart shape. Sew on each side of your mark. Cut on mark and you will have 2 flying geese. You get 4 from each square when you are done. I think there is a tutorial on you tube. But the measurements above are what you need to get the size flying geese we need.

    I do 4.5" as that gives me wiggle room to square it up.

    I have the rulers and I'm going to try both ways to see which is easier for me...I cut the 4.5" square and I thought that when placing the 2 squares diagonally the crossover in the center wasn't deep enough...that's why I asked. thanks for responding...

    I cut one strip of each purple to start with, so will have all of them in this segment. I got all my purples cut, and most of my black on whites. Good start for today!
