Try her book, Bear Paw Ranch. I believe I saw it there.

Help please--I love Eleanor's method for flying geese but need to make some that are finished size 2 1/2" by 4" and don't know what size to cut the two squares--I can't find the answer anywhere and I have several of Eleanor's books--does anyone know what dimensions I should cut the 2 blocks?

Good morning. I'm new to this community so please bear with me. I need to make flying geese a different size than Eleanor's rulers . I've seen this question posted, but haven't been able to locate the answers. The pattern I'm using calls for 3" square & 3x5 1/2" rectangle. Thanks for the help.

Hi. I am new to this forum and fairly new to quilting. I am making a quilt where you join snowball blocks together. I was wondering which way to iron the seams when you are joining them together. Any help would be great. Thanks karen

KALOU, when I am joining snowball blocks, I iron the seams of the little corners in the opposite directions of the one adjacent to it so the seams "nest" and create less bulk.

Would you do a video demonstration on the newest "Calling All Geese"
Tool. I seem to need a visual lesson. Please, please.
Thanking you in advance.

I purchased the Calling All Geese ruler and there were no instructions included. Is there a video available relating to this ruler?

If you need any instructions for QIAD rulers look at the very top of the page for "Free Patterns". On that page there is a green box near the top right side for ruler instructions.
