    Default Ultimate Flying Geese Ruler

    Hello Everyone!
    Iím hoping you all can help me figure out my flying geese block question. Iím currently working on a block that joins two flying geese to produce a block size of 6 1/2 x 6 1/2. Before join the two flying geese together, they should both be 3 1/2 by 6 1/2. One person suggested to use the Flying Geese Ultimate Ruler. When I looked up the ruler, I only see a template for 3x6. Does that 3x6 mean finished without seam allowance? Does that make sense? Iím just trying to figure out if I can use the ruler before buying one.
    Thanks for your help!

    Sorry I do not have an answer for you but wanted to add that makes me crazy, they need to say finished sizes if they are.

    I would think that means finished size for your flying geese. Most FG rulers I have seen do list the finished sizes

    Yes the 3x6 means finished without seam allowance so the unfinished size is 3.5 x 6.5. The Flying Geese Ultimate Ruler will work.

    An easy way to remember this relationship for finished flying geese is the width is always exactly double the height. So 3x2=6 correct but 3.5x2 does not equal 6.5 so that can't possibly work.

    This is why my stash of orphan blocks keeps gettimg bigger, because I am terrible at math. Good luck figuring it out.

    I’m terrible at math too which is probably why I buy way more fabric than I need to for most projects!

    I love the Deb Tucker Flying Geese tool. It makes any size you need (1/2" increments) and her cutting directions save fabric. The one caveat is that the tool is very slippery, so I put little bits of paper tape on the bottom. https://deb-tuckers-studio-180-desig...wing-clipper-1
    Toni ... If I keep sewing long enough, will they make their own dinner?
