Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
I prefer Eleanor Burns method using her rulers. All the geese are accurate (for me) using her method. I've tried everything out there a couple of times! Guess I'm not a very accurate piecer so her method works every time for me.
I like the Eleanore Burns rulers. and also the 3d ones if I want them in 3d.
I too prefer Eleanor Burns templates,always get accurate geese,in fact when I started quilting I purchased most of her books and to this day use a lot of her techniques.
Wow. It's fun reading all the opinions. There are so many different ways to piece Flying Geese & I've tried at least 3 or 4. I have not tried the Elanor Burns templates, however. They seem to be popular. Hmmmm!
It's been awhile since I made them,if I remember correctly when you're done you have 4 flying geese instead of l.
There's a youtube video put up by Missouri quilt co. called flying geese made easy dated aug 25/11. Just google "eleanor burns 3 d flying geese", and it comes up about 3 rd. choice. l only got to see a mim. or 2 'cause l don't have enough band width:(
Riana,this video shows how to do flying geese,but there's a lot of steps with sewing and cutting,with her rulers it's so much simpler and I would also say more accurate.
