Flying Geese with the Wing Clipper

I have to admit that I have had my issues making flying geese the four at a time way.  I was looking for something to help me with that, because frankly flying geese are a big item in our quilts, right.  So the quilt I am making for an upcoming wedding has 144 flying geese, and they are the 4 x 8 size and when the blocks get bigger, for me there is more of a chance of being off.  Don't know exactly why, but for me it happens.  So, I decided to try the Wing Clipper.







And actually it worked very well...




Note my gripper strips on the ruler.  I found it was definitely necessary to use gripper strips, and as usual, I found a way to make the gripper circles go further.  I also use the area around the little circles because it works just as well.  Not so elegant, but it works!





Perfect geese, much easier.  Take off just a bit on every side and you have some nice looking geese!






Well, there you have it, now to finish up the quilt hopefully in time for the wedding! 


Always, Kay
