tip #31--maximizing fabric use when cutting out flying geese

I am cutting out a lot of flying geese shapes for some pinwheel blocks.
I use the Companion Angle for the geese but I start and end the strip with the EZ angle to get a usable patch at the beginning and at the end of my Companion angle cuts. I don't need the half-square triangle for this project, but they are saved and ready to go for another down the road.

This is a great idea I never thought of. I've been working on a quilt that is all Flying Geese and am using the Lazy Girl Flying Geese ruler. Makes 4 Flying Geese at a time, and no waste. Very fast and I love it!
