    • I used Eleanor Burns’ QIAD FG rulers to make that ginormous Crown Royal quilt. I can’t imagine doing it any other way. They saved my sanity! Have you tried the Bloc Loc FG rulers yet? At Scrappy’s 20% off sale the other day I almost grabbed one but it was $25 regular price! I think I’ll stick to Eleanor’s rulers for that price.

  1. For Flying Geese, use Eleanor Burns rulers – she has 3 that provide different sizes of flying geese and will save you from pulling your hair out. They are not expensive. I deviate from her “draw a line in the middle” and then sew 1/4″ on each side etc stuff..

    When I make HST’s I add 1/8″ of an inch to the recommended cutting size and then just cut on the diagonal and sew them together – sometimes using a scant quarter of an inch. When making QST’s one must add more to the cutting! Happy Stitching. I remember when I first started piecing in 2004! What a lesson I had to teach myself!
