Bonnie showed us in a short video how to make the flying geese units using the Companion Angle and the Easy Angle rulers. What a revelation. I have had these rulers since last years Orca Bay mystery and after watching the video I discovered that I have been using the Easy Angle ruler incorrectly all of this time!
I am such a visual person and after seeing the video a light bulb went of in my head. It all made so much sense. Making the geese using just 2 inch strips was so easy and every single one of the units turned out the right size.
This method of making the units was much quicker and so effective. Thank you so much for the video Bonnie. It made such a difference for me and I am sure many, many more people will benefit from it.
Here are my completed flying geese units.
I hope the yellow was the right colour choice. I am not confident when it comes to colour. I want the yellow to be the colour there was the least of in the final quilt. As Bonnie's purple had the least amount of yardage of the three main colours, I thought it would be safe to assume that it will not be used as much as the other 2 colours (brown and orange in my case).
I am linking up with Bonnie's mystery-monday-link-up-part-2.
There were over 200 people who linked up last week so make sure you have a gander (my attempt at play on words...get it, flying geese--gander. Ok funny in my own head!).
