I have been trimming and trimming and trimming all day, my hands hurt! You would think it would be just the rotary cutter hand, but even the ruler hand is hurting.
Okay, maybe I sound a bit whiney, or probably a lot bit whiney, but hey, I made 350 flying geese today! My eyes are blurry and my head is kind of fuzzy. I only kept working because I didn’t want to do them tomorrow.If I would have just used the stitch and flip method, I could have saved hours of time not to mention my hands! But no…I decided to use my Wing Clipper ruler because there is very little waste with this method, and I am at the bottom of my fabrics.
I really do like this ruler. It makes perfect flying geese. You get 4 flying geese out of each square. It gives the cutting measurements and the trimming guides. They start by looking like hearts. These will be two geese.
It was easy to sew the square down 1/4″ from the center on both sides using my Lori Holt seam measuring flower marker. But it is easy and accurate to mark the lines as well.
Then the handy ruler gives the trim guides. I put the valley in the v lines of the ruler on the 3.5″ marks. Then I turned the block over to the mountain side and lined it up and trimmed again
And voila! The perfect flying geese block. Gorgeous! It’s funny how these kind of appear out of nothing.. They take more time than the stitch and flip, but there are only little slivers of waste here.
I hope your quilting adventures are SWEET and happy …. without any rotary cutting pain:) Lol!
