    I just tried the link I posted and it works but here it is again as a tiny url: http://tinyurl.com/795rkyf


    The one from New Leaf looks about the same but it is printed on flexible vinyl thereby possibly avoiding any sharp edges that your fabric might or might not get hung up on. I haven't used either the New Leaf nor the other one listed at the beginning of this thread.

    Looks like a great tool. Haven't done any flying geese but now looks like something I need to add to my growing list of to do quilt blocks

    I have used the New Leaf Stitches one and it is easy to use. You don't have to remove it. All you do is roll the front edge towards the back, but leave the back attached. Then you can change your bobbin or clean out the feed dogs area and roll the Clearly Perfect Angles back into position. You can leave it on for everything, whether you need to sew angles or not.

    I just had a workshop on Billie Lauder's tips. Her method of flying geeses was very good. Easy and came out great. I think I'll stick with that for now. I'd probably misplace the ruler and be out.
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.

    From the Villie Lauder video I found online, her method is similar to this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F7WQp..._order&list=UL

    Both of these methods however do require drawing a line on your fabric.

    I've got a pattern picked out which requires the flying geese so I am interested in any method that will help me get points and corners matched up without me pulling my hair out.

    I've used it, but I found these "Stitching Lines" by Marin & Colusa that they (the inventors) were demoing at a quilt show. They work very well

    I had an Angler in the past and sold it to someone because it just doesn't work unless you have a large flat area (or one of those acrylic things) around your machine. Now with the Bernina, it comes with a flat bed, so I guess I will look at getting it again. Great tip.

    The Eleanor Burns method involves using her specialty rulers. It's fast, accurate and wonderful. However, you are limited to 4 sizes. I use her method most of the time, but sometimes I need another size. The Angler also works great for cheater corners and I do tons of those.

    No you don't need the special ruler to do this....they are nice, but any square ruler will do. I have seen Eleanor herself do it this way on one of her older shows when the specialty rulers first came out. Just remember that there is a quarter inch seam allowance across the top and not on the sides....

    The item is no longer available --- and I HATE flying geese as mine refuse to fly - I guess because their wing gets clipped!
