    I have Kimberly Einmo's ruler and I like it. No waste with this one and you can make sizes from 1-1/2" x 3" up to 6 x 12" finished.

    I just found this from Bonnie Hunter https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6f6XIpd0Uk She doesn't appear to have to square up or trim her flying geese. Has anyone used this method?

    You can get deb Tucker's 1/2 inch ruler on her website studio180designs.net for $4.50, but after adding shipping... Or fons and porter have a similar quarter inch seam marker for $14.99.
    Honestly, I'm now making a BUNCH of flying geese for my americana quilt, and I've found it easiest to just iron my little squares in half in the diagonal, and use that as a reference to sew 1/4" on either side, with my 1/4 foot.
    And someone had a question about waste.. I trim off maybe 1/16" to 1/8" on the edges f the flying geese...that's very little waste!

    Thanks - I searched this morning until I realized I wasn't having luck and if I kept it up I'd not get packed for my upcoming adventure.
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    Here's a No Waste method of flying geese that might be helpful too.
