I am going to use the No Math Flying Geese ruler. I have all my units cut out, and will take the "sky" units to work today to mark. Looking at Sue's "bikini" method, it looks to be pretty much the same!
I got started tonight after cutting all the pieces. I like doing the paper foundation and also use the add-a-quarter ruler. Yes it is a little tedious but I like to do things slowly to hopefully cut down on too many take outs, although I am quite proficient at taking out.
Before I print out the directions, are there any corrections? I assume everything is okay. I am waiting a day or two to print as everyone out there is way ahead of the game. I am still on February. Judy in AZ
Margo, I've been making mine exactly as you did in your tutorial (thanks for posting that!). The first set of 6, I didn't cut off seam allowances and had some unfortunate mishaps. Some of them just involved taking out a seam, but I after I cut off my actual piece instead of just the seam allowance- twice- I switched over to cutting off the seam allowance before sewing on the next piece.
It's tedious but they are turning out beautifully. I'm working on strip #6 and #7 now- it's taking about 90 minutes to make two sets.
Is everybody ready to make a flock of flying geese???
There are a LOT of different techniques for making flying geese units. Sue recommends paper foundations, and provides them in this month's directions.
I did use paper foundations, but I also used an "add-a-quarter" ruler during construction. I felt that was easier for me than holding the fabric up to the light to get it lined up. I've added a brief tutorial on my Webshots album if anyone is interested.
