    What would the measurements be if I was using 5"x5" blocks? I just can't wrap my head around it lol

    I don't know why this post keeps disappearing from the tutorial page. I put a lot of time into it and I am sure there are people who haven't seen it who might be interested. I just went through the entire Archive list and couldn't find it. Therefore, I'm going to try bumping it before I post it again!

    Wow! I must have been hiding under a rock when this was first posted. I love making and using Flying Geese, but I make them the old fashioned way. I have Eleanor Burns ruler for making FG but really like the old way better. But THIS looks great. Can't wait to make some. Thanks. BTW, your tutes are awesome. You put so much thought and work into them.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    Awesome! I have always put off doing Flying Geese blocks because I didn't want to have all the waste. I will certainly try them now using your this method. Thanks.

    Just came across this. Very nice tutorial. It is similar to Deb Tucker's instructions. I love her flying geese tools. Oversize it and trim. Very neat. She also has a nice web site and quilt gallery.

    seeing all those lovely geese laying on your table...is like looking into a bakery shop window.
    I'd far rather have fabric than sweets Well done and thanks.
    Looking at how you've used them in your avatar makes me hungry for geese! Fabric ones...

    Love your tutorial. After reading it I looked around and found this chart that will help with the math.

    Thanks cwessel47, I'll have to try this soon! Bonniemanley, if you copy and paste into a Word document, you can keep it that way for future use.

    dgeskine, I tried saving and pasting into a word doc. The typing took, but none of the pictures would transfer. What am I doing wrong?
