This is exactly how Lisa Moore does hers - it's so quick and simple. Just love it.

I enjoyed the vidio but asd usual, the voices were off and doubled. You had to really concentrate to understand. Does anyone else have that problem with youtube?

I like Debbie Tucker's Wing Clipper. You use a big square and 4 smaller squares. You trim the edges with the lines marked on the ruler. Very easy! I'm a sucker for a ruler!!

Next, onto each of the 2 units you add a square, again draw a diagonal line and sew on each side of it, and then cut apart and press. You end up with 4 units with no waste. As long as you cut accurately and sew accurately, this is a wonderful method.
I just learned this method in a beginning quilt class. Makes quick work if you have a lot to make (I had 40). The only thing you need to watch is when you square up the finished geese, be sure the "Point" (or beak!) of the goose is pointing at you...not away from you. This makes for a much straighter set or border.

This is the one I like to make too. Being new to quilting, it's easy to get each one perfect and consistant every time.

Wasn't there a link showing how you take 2 squares, right sides together, sew around all 4 sides,cut corner to corner, and corner to corner, turn and press. I haven't tried it yet,but sounded simple and accurate to me.
