    I have done the elephant. I did take a class but it is mostly cutting out large floral prints and then placing them, it takes a LOT of fabric and you don't use the glue down paper till you are sure of where you want things. I spent about 30 hours doing it. Not hard but a lot of cutting

    I own the Innova, bought one that was used at shows. It is wonderful. Have had it for 3 years and never a problem

    I'm using my QIAD Geese ruler to make sure mine are ok. I'm still on Clue#2 as well. That little ruler is exactly 2" X 3" and even has the diagonal line on it.
    I posted a photo of it next to a ruler in the Thread by NZquilter.

    Thank you so much for these suggestions, Patrice. This will be my challenge for 2018- perfect flying geese.

    i've never had any success using any of the "make it wrong and then trim to fix it" methods. i'm too fussy to enjoy the results.

    no matter which method you use that is supposed to turn out correctly without trimming back to size, the keys are to cut the pieces accurately and to use a scant 1/4" seam. (that's about a thread or two narrower than a true 1/4".) it takes practice.

    i heartily recommend starching the heck out of your fabrics before you start cutting. i get better cuts when i do. it's easier to control the pieces as i feed them into the machine. it's also easier for to finger press so they are the correct size and shape before the final press.

    press. move the iron up and down as you go across the block.
    don't iron side to side.

    you might still end up with that little bow at the bottom but if it measures correctly otherwise, trimming to straighten/remove that should result in something you're happy with.

    I bought it at an on-line tailoring supply shop, so long ago i can't remember, it lasts a long time because you use so little. But I did find some at Norton Supply while searching the internet to answer this question:

    There is not one on my Tin Lizzie 18 ESP. Frustrating.

    It is pretty. Might be a custom quilt if no one was credited with making it. Was it a fairly recent post? What group on FB? I'm on Facebook all the time and follow a bunch of quilting pages.
