Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
The trouble w/ youtube is the loading. Like others, it takes 5 min. of "buffering" for 30 sec. of video. Too bad our devises can't just "record" the video, similar to pdf. downloads, then we could all enjoy them. Anyway, I too have done them "the old way"...but I'm always ready to try another method, especially if the end product is better (ie; accurate) rather than "quick":)
I like the "flying geese by 4" method using a big square and 4 small squares.
I also prefer the one seam flying geese - I call it Origami Geese.
I like the EZ angle Rule, and companion angle ruler. I seem to have pretty good success with those.
Don't feel bad Rogue. I was doing the Bonnie Hunter Easy Street Mystery and wondering how to do them, and watched her video. Started thinking, I have something like that so started digging in my boxes of 'stuff' and found a big EZ Angle rule, a small EZ Angle Ruler and the companion angle. I must have had them for years.
As to getting distracted. I just look at my husband and say Squirrel.
Squirrel! That would work for my whole family. Three boys and one man who acts like one.
I just finished two beautiful border rows with 24 each of the folded flying geese & they look great. The best Flying Geese I've ever sewn. I wonder how they will be for quilting? That will be the real test. They are kind of thick.
Can't wait to see how your quilt turns out. Do you hand quilt, machine quilt, have a long arm, or send it out? I machine quilt so when I start to get to an area that is thick I slow down.
LOL All the boys. I had all girls, but now while helping raise my grandchildren I have a whole house full of boys. With DH and them the testosterone oozes.
