Flying Geese quilt-block tutorial with designer Pam Buda (video + giveaway!)

From Vintage PatchworkOkay, let’s have some serious quilt talk today.

Let’s talk fudging.

Have you ever had to fudge your patchwork units? S-t-r-e-t-c-h-ing them or easing them to fit together?

If you’re familiar with fudging, raise your hand. 🙋🙋🙋 Well, fudge no more! Vintage Patchwork author Pam Buda knows that just a few minor adjustments in your piecing will result in more accurately sized units. Which makes more accurately sized blocks. And more accurately sized quilts!

Pam recently shared her “Four Principles for Perfect Connector Corners” with us via video, and her technique works for any stitch-and-flip unit or block. (Spoiler alert: the tip is all about that flip!)

Take a look at Pam’s method, demonstrated in this Flying Geese quilt-block tutorial:

Leave it to Pam to bring better precision within reach. Did Pam’s Flying Geese quilt-block tutorial reveal a new strategy for you?

Pam uses lots of Flying Geese and half-square triangles in her little quilts from Vintage Patchwork. We think you’re going to love her pretty, pint-sized patchwork projects—all made from ONE bundle of 10″ squares!

  • My precise piecing needs some practice!!

    —Terry Ginter on February 11, 2019
  • I thought I was pretty precise until I started working on Kim Diehl’s Whatnots Club patterns. Those 1/2″ squares are tricky to perfect.

    —Libby Kupp on February 11, 2019
  • The only way I’ve been very precise is with paper piecing, but I rarely do that, so need more practice usually.

    —Jane on February 11, 2019
  • I usually get them right but that’s only because of years of practice! I use Pam’s techniques although I never sat down to analyze it.

    —Ellie Lively on February 11, 2019
  • I was lucky enough to meet Pam at my favorite quilt shop, Quilt Merchant in Winfield, Illinois. I do have to fudge sometimes but am now working very hard to improve so I can make pam’s 1800 quilt.

    —Sharon Lowy on February 11, 2019
  • I could probably improve my piecing. I am usually able to make the blocks work, however. I am definitely going to watch the video! The book also looks very good.

  • Sometimes I get it just right and sometimes I fudge.

    —Carol on February 11, 2019
  • I follow Pam’s method and if I am making lots of flying geese , I use a flying geese ruler! Honestly, taking your time to see accurately makes putting the quilt together a pleasure! Thanks for the chance to win!

    —Kerry Linklater on February 11, 2019
  • I have learned to be a precise piecer. I have also developed a very close relationship with my seam ripper. I’m a huge fan of Pam’s designs. I have not seen one that doesn’t call my name. Its sad that fabtice and patterns can sing!!! Thanks for this post.

    —Leslie Lewis on February 11, 2019
  • I cut precisely, I think I sew precisely and yet I seem to do a lot of fudging. I will have to study her techniques!

    —Kris on February 11, 2019
  • I have tried many methods of making flying geese and have several different rulers as well. Sometimes they turn out okay, other times not so much. I watched the video and am going to keep trying.

    —Colleen Terry on February 11, 2019
  • I can never get the flying geese correct. Need help. That’s for sure!

    —Betti Hendrickson on February 11, 2019
  • I pin carefully and try very hard to be accurate, but if there’s excess that I can fudge a little or stretch a little to make it work, that’s what I do. You do what you gotta do! I’m always glad to see good tips for improvement.

    —Karen Pollard on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it right and sometime yes, I have to fudge. Thank you for this great info from Pam, her book looks wonderful

    —Diane H on February 11, 2019

    —Anita L Jackson on February 11, 2019
  • I definitely need some practice. The video is very helpful!

    —R. Douglas on February 11, 2019
  • I was just working on something similar last night! I fudged and picked a lot! Great tips I will incorporate next time I sit to sew!!

    Judy Paiva on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes my piecing is right on, and I celebrate. Sometimes I need to fudge a bit, and I get it done. This looks helpful, and I have fallen in love with her fabrics!

    —Tess McCarthy on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it just right and sometimes I fudge….

    —Kathleen Gaffney on February 11, 2019
  • Hopefully this tutorial will help me to reach the point of consistency-I’ve always had the problem of being off-again/on-again! Thank you!

    —Linda Hahn on February 11, 2019
  • I try SO HARD to be precise… and I’m genuinely surprised when blocks are wonky. I take the seam ripper to the most offensive blocks and try again!

    —BETSY LANG on February 11, 2019
  • I really try very hard. Sometimes I get it and sometimes I don’t. It’s a constant battle!!

    —Deb on February 11, 2019

    —Sandy F. on February 11, 2019
  • Always room for improvement!

    —Carol Vickers on February 11, 2019
  • I always try to follow Pam’s method but sometimes I have to fudge.

    —Elizabeth DiCrescenzo on February 11, 2019
  • I am very precise; I already follow Pam’s method. I’d love the opportunity to work with the patterns in her new book!

    —Rickie Long on February 11, 2019
  • I really try very hard to try using this method. Sometimes I get it and sometimes I don’t. It’s a constant battle!!

    —Deb on February 11, 2019
  • My piecing needs some work for sure. So I need lots of practice.

    —Carolyn Nannery on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it right and sometimes no matter how I try things just don’t work quite right and I have to fudge which in turn makes me eat fudge….! I would love to have a quilt project look professional and every tip, corner, seam match and for my quilt to lay exactly flat when completed ending with an exact perfectly squared quilt.

    —robin teuscher on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it just right and sometimes I fudge.

    —INA ANDERSON on February 11, 2019
  • Most of the time I get it right! I usually do the technique of 2 flying geese at a time and find that works well for me! But I do occasionally fudge.

    —Judy Patrick on February 11, 2019
  • I try to be a precise quilter and there’s room for improvement. However, I am not familiar with Pam’s work. The pictures of her work are beautiful. Her piecing is superb with sewing lines meeting and sharp points. I am impressed with her work.

    —Lurlean Jackson on February 11, 2019
  • My piecing needs help!!!

    —Deb Wald on February 11, 2019
  • I am sometimes almost perfect, but sure can use the practice and tips to do better. Also ready to try new techniques.

    —cindy scholfield on February 11, 2019
  • I fall into the “I need some practice “ category. Thanks for the chance.

    —SherryG on February 11, 2019

    —Sue H on February 11, 2019
  • Would love some help, sometimes my project works and sometimes it does not match up.

    —Marilyn on February 11, 2019
  • I do follow Pam’s method but still have things go wrong sometimes. Guess that’s the human element that comes through at times !

    —Rilla Burnham on February 11, 2019
  • Vintage Patchwork! Absolutely beautiful.

    —Mary on February 11, 2019
  • I have to fudge pieces once in a while, but consider myself a perfectionist!!

    —Bernadette Schultz on February 11, 2019
  • Precise piecing is not my strong suit I definitely can use all the help I can get

    —Maxie Britton on February 11, 2019
  • I try to be as precise as I can, but I can always like to learn new ways to work.

    —Linda Vargas on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it just right and sometimes I fudge.
    Very frustrating when it doesn’t work right. Looking forward to giving Pam’s tip s try!

    —Pamela W on February 11, 2019
  • I’ve squished and stretched piecing so help with tips to improve is a goal I look forward to.

    —Sandra P on February 11, 2019
  • I love the quilt. I wish I could sew with such accuracy. I try very hard but end up fudging when I put my quilt blocks together. I guess I am in the category of sometimes I get it right but most of the time I don’t.

    —Sandra root on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it right and sometimes I have to fudge! I could definitely use the tips to make it right every time

    —Pam Kosirog on February 11, 2019

    —Grace Tucker on February 11, 2019
  • My precise sewing needs more work.

    —Barbara Starkey on February 11, 2019
  • Enjoyed the video and seeing the tips I had only read about illustrated. My piecing is mot always perfect, but much improved through much practice.

    —Joyce Comfort on February 11, 2019
  • I try to be precise. I love it when the points come out perfect. However, I need a lot of practice or maybe a new method. I try all the new ideas in hope that I’ll be successful more than once in a row.

    Sandra Alfano on February 11, 2019
  • I am very precise. When I teach quilting, I tell everyone the most important part of perfect piecing is perfect cutting. You can also mess it up with your pressing. Most of us sew it perfectly.

    I like to learn from other people’s experience to improve my piecing. I’m not a fan of squaring up blocks, but sometimes you have to for the results you want.

    —Kay Menefee on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes my precise sewing needs more work!

    —Angela Little on February 11, 2019
  • I keep trying, but still struggle with my flying geese units.

    —Mary Brott on February 11, 2019
  • I am not as good at precise piecing as I would like to be, hoping to learn more.

    —Lisa on February 11, 2019
  • I am a stickler for precision, and I use Pam’s method. I used to fudge-to-fit years ago, but would rather cut and piece very carefully – it pays out in the long run.

    —Gail Mackay on February 11, 2019
  • Always a fudger! I am new to quilting and quite the fudger. I need all all the help I can get to get away from the fudging technique. I enjoy learning and reading to help me become better at this craft.

    —Cathy McCabe on February 11, 2019
  • I fall into the middle group! I try my best to be accurate….Pam’s video was great! I’ll take the time to mark my corner squares now.

    —Diane Graf on February 11, 2019
  • Love the look of flying geese and HST, but still need to improve on mine.

    —Lou M on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it just right and sometimes I fudge. Good tips in the video.

    —Cindy Fraher on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I’ll have to fudge. Thanks for the video tip and chance to win! Lovely patterns and fabric.

    —Karen Higgins on February 11, 2019
  • I’m in a mini quilt bee at guild. We are always looking for the perfect piecing technique. Pam sounds like the expert to follow. Happy Quilting, Renee

    —Renee Eudaley on February 11, 2019
  • I try to be precise. I’ve taken Pam’s workshop on precision piecing and it was great!

    —Martha Henrichs on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I have to fudge it but most of the time every thing comes out the way it is suppose to—hope I win something this time-thanks

    Bea Donald on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I am and sometimes I’m not

    —Virginia Over on February 11, 2019
  • I need all the help I can get LOL. Sometimes I am right and sometimes I am off. I think it has to do on the direction I cut my material. I just saw it on a video and that may be my issue.

    —Barbara on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it just right and sometimes I fudge. I often forget that the second unit is supposed to cover the first by that .25 inch and end up with a goose who’s wings are at the outside edge of the body.

    —Lois Heath on February 11, 2019
  • I try precision but it may not turn out exactly as I wish. I do make my flying geese the same way as I have tried other options and always go back to this technique.

    —Gail T on February 11, 2019
  • I learned about sewing inside the line not on the line. Maybe why thats the reason I need to make so many to get one right. Thanks for the tip and the fantastic giveaway!
    Pam, Martingale and Marcus Fabrics, you all rock!

    —Eileen Emerson on February 11, 2019
  • More practice is always needed!

    —Pat Braun on February 11, 2019

    —Eileen Emerson on February 11, 2019
  • Love the book. I do have to fudge sometimes, but working on getting better. Like they say, practice makes perfect.

    —Tina Budde on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes it’s great; sometimes I have to fudge. It often depends on how fast I am trying to get things done. If I allow myself time, it’s better. Rushing usually leads to fudging.

    —Stephanie on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it right and sometimes I fudge!! Wish I’d learned Pam’s method earlier!! Thanks for the opportunity to win, I’d love her book!

    —Louise Wagner on February 11, 2019
  • Actually, at some times I have done all 3 in the same year. Piecing can always be upgraded. Practice makes better if not perfect.

    Diane M Hampton on February 11, 2019
  • 50/50 for me.

    —Susan E Torrington on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I fudge it a bit, so can use a little improvement.

    —Bellerive Sharon on February 11, 2019
  • Thank you for this great tutorial! I definitely will try to follow on my current project!

    —Susan Thacker on February 11, 2019
  • I have a lot of flying geese in my future. I have chosen 2 patterns that have them in the border and am a little hesitant. I fudge much too often and could use all the help I can get. Thanks for the opportunity.

    —Janet Reynolds on February 11, 2019
  • My precise piecing could use some help which is why I like foundation piecing. I am looking forward to learning Pam’s method.

    The fabrics are lovely!

    —Barbara Wiggins on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it right alot of times I fudge. Then I also say "the quilter will quilt that out"!

    —Lenore worden on February 11, 2019
  • I fudge…….definitely need some help!

    —Judith Rizzo on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes my blocks come it just right, sometimes not. I would like to develop more precision, so I can tackle blocks with more angles, with confidence.

    —Barb on February 11, 2019
  • i am a part time precise piecer; i always try but don’t always succeed.

    —Carolyn Montgomery on February 11, 2019
  • I try to be as precise as I can, but there is always room for improvement! Would love to win the book and fabric bundle, as I haven’t been able to locate either one in any of my area quilt shops, so thanks for the opportunity!

    —Sandie Mackintosh on February 11, 2019
  • I love being precise, but always accept tips! Thank you!

    —Joyce Lewis on February 11, 2019
  • Unfortunately, I need a lot of help with my flying geese. I don’t attempt them very often because I am never satisfied with my results. Pam’s fabrics are beautiful , i would love to try her methods

    —Gina on February 11, 2019
  • I try to be precise and I use the technique of sewing just inside the line. However I also oversize my pieces, sew, then trim down.

    —Mary Kinsey on February 11, 2019
  • Some come out good and some not so much. I would love to get better at this.

    —Joanne ONeal on February 11, 2019
  • I always try to be as accurate as possible. I love reproduction fabrics and patterns and feel like precision is important. But so is having fun and enjoying your results!

    —Christine E on February 11, 2019
  • I strive to be as precise as possible, but am always looking for tutorials and instructions which will improve my cutting and piecing skills. Pam’s tutorial and accompanying hints helped me acquire another quilting skill set.

    —Gloria R on February 11, 2019
  • Most of the time I get it right, but occasionally a fudge is necessary.

    —Linda B on February 11, 2019
  • I sometimes get it right. I used to stress over it, wanting everything to be perfect. I have learned to relax and go with the flow.

    —Lori S. on February 11, 2019
  • My piecing could use some help.

    Mayme on February 11, 2019
  • My piecing is accurate. I have made some of Pam’s patterns. Her instructions and measurements make it easy to be accurate. I would love to win the book and layer cakes!

    —Joette on February 11, 2019
  • I fudge. I need lots of practice!

    —Charlotte Henson on February 11, 2019
  • I’ve been practicing on precision piecing but have a ways to go. My sister does beautiful piecing, I’m jealous.

    —Patti on February 11, 2019
  • Always looking for ways to improve those pesky flying geese. Quilt shop fabrics makes a difference versus craft store fabrics and I love using the Bloc Loc rulers as well for precision.

    —Barb Dwyer on February 11, 2019
  • Love the quilts and would like to win a book and fabric to make them, thanks

    Gracie Adams on February 11, 2019
  • My flying geese still challenge me! I need to be much more precise.

    —Susan Reynolds on February 11, 2019
  • I’m a new quilter and don’t know some of the cutting/sewing tips for precise piecing. I think the info you provide will help with my frustration.

    —Carolyn Thomas on February 11, 2019
  • Precise piecing is important to me. Sometimes the project is a quickie so the sacrifice of not so precise occurs!

    —Pam Mildren on February 11, 2019
  • Thanks for the lesson!

    —Lauren Eberhard on February 11, 2019
  • My precise piecing isn’t always precise unless I have some help like paper piecing! Otherwise, I am a wanna be perfectionist!

    —Teresa on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes everything comes out perfect…and sometimes I have to fudge. The frustrating part is I can never tell what I did differently!

    —Carolyn Sefkow on February 11, 2019
  • I use her method and most of the time they come out perfect. Every now and then I have to try again. Love doing very small scrappy doll quilts and mug rugs.

    —Shelby on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it right, sometimes I rip. I’ll be trying Pam’s method. Thank you!

    —Stephanie S. on February 11, 2019
  • I am always trying to get more accurate. Yes, I sometimes fudge but it is not the best way. Sometimes I purposely oversized and trim.

    —Judi on February 11, 2019
  • I try to be precise but things don’t always go the way I want. Thank you for the tips.

    —Judith K on February 11, 2019
  • When I started out quilting, I was constantly stretching and fudging to get things to fit right. Then I realized, I was wasting a lot of time putting the blocks together. If I sewed precisely and trimmed my blocks if necessary, the blocks fit together quicker! Pam’s got some great techniques for us in this video. Thank you.

    —Michele H Gailey on February 11, 2019
  • My precise piecing needs some practice!

    —Brenda Hulsey on February 11, 2019
  • Had never heard the term ‘fudging’ before I learned to quilt. Now it’s just a daily reminder that I’m STILL not perfect.
    Would love this book.

    —Hedda on February 11, 2019
  • I really struggle to get it right most times! This is a great help! Thanks!

    —Sharon Edmondson on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it right, sometimes I fudge. I make a lot of charity quilts for local NICUs. My motto is "the babies don’t care". Would love the book and pre-cuts.

    —Kathy A on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes my flying geese come out perfectly and sometimes I need to fudge quite a bit. Pam’s little quilts are so lovely.

    —Carol E. on February 11, 2019
  • I try to be precise but sometimes my piecing is off. I just keep practicing and making more quilts. Thanks for the video and tips! It is so helpful to watch these types of videos.

    —Caroline Martin on February 11, 2019
  • I try to be accurate, but it does not always work. I need to learn from Pam.

    —Jo A Short on February 11, 2019
  • The book has fantastic gift ideas. I will use these helps and and hopefully I will not have to fudge as much. Thanks.

    —Darliss Peabody on February 11, 2019
  • Some days are better than others, good thing I like Fudge!

    —Carole Soucie on February 11, 2019
  • Precise piecing is always important to me but I always have at least one or two that I need to adjust by easing. It would be great to not have a different method.

    —Michele McCreery on February 11, 2019
  • Fudge, Fudge, Fudge

    —Colleen on February 11, 2019
  • I’m a beginner just ready to step up from squares to flying geese, so this video was right on time. Maybe I can learn the precise way right from the start! Thanks, Pam and Martingale.

    —Nancy Lyman on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes it is good, sometimes not… and I don‘t know why. But I fix it my way and I‘m happy

    —Christine on February 11, 2019
  • I try very hard to be precise and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t and I have to fudge.

    —Janet on February 11, 2019
  • I like to think I am a very precise piecer. It is important to me that corners and points meet & align correctly.

  • Looking forward to seeing Pam in Ohio at Sauder’s soon for more tips

    —Sandra Brothers on February 11, 2019
  • I’m working on this process. My piecing is improving but still too much “ making “ it work.

    —Gail on February 11, 2019
  • After years of practice I am getting better at getting it right unless I get in a hurry. I love Pam’s new book projects and would love to win this book!

    —Ferne on February 11, 2019
  • I try to use her method and it usually comes out perfect on the first time. I find it comes out wrong if I haven’t been accurate with my cutting.

    —Deborah on February 11, 2019
  • I try my best to be a precise piecer but, alas, I am a long way from perfect. But, I will not give up.

  • Sometimes I get it right, but now I am empowered with marking and stitching tools to get better. Thank you for sharing.

    —Sharon A on February 11, 2019
  • My precise piecing needs some practice

    —Jocelyn S on February 11, 2019
  • I am "pretty" precise. I usually have no problems with flying geese. I am going to try sewing in from the drawn line, just a little, and see if that helps make things even better!

    —Patty F. on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it right and some I havto make corrections. I definitely need some improvement. The video was very informative and gave me some answers of what I could be doing wrong. Thanks!

    —Rita on February 11, 2019
  • Over the years I have become more accurate in my piecing skills, but sometimes I still need to fudge. Great giveaway and tutorial, thanks!

    —Fran Bianchi on February 11, 2019
  • Practice….need LOTS of practice!

    —Deb on February 11, 2019
  • I sometimes fudge but try for accuracy.
    Pam’s video was helpful!

    —Julia on February 11, 2019
  • I wish I were perfect. I try to be accurate and sometimes it works. I will definitely use Pam’s method.

    —Jackie Swanson on February 11, 2019
  • I would love to say I use Pam’s method and get it perfect each time. But more often than not I end up having to either "realign" (my word for fudge) or take it out and redo. Pam’s method seems to be a winner and I will try it.

    —Maureen on February 11, 2019
  • I actually use Pam’s techniques most of the time but I’m not always consistent!

    Barbara Johnson on February 11, 2019
  • my precise piecing needs practice !! sometimes it’s precise and sometimes not!!

    Margaret Loges on February 11, 2019

    —Lucille on February 11, 2019
  • I strive for perfection which is a continual process, it is not a place where you have arrived. Sometimes the process is better than other times.

    —Andrea N on February 11, 2019
  • Very helpful.

    —Charlie Campolongo on February 11, 2019
  • I try very hard for precision. I also do a lot of unsewing to get there! This technique is great.

    —Karen Christensen on February 11, 2019
  • I am very precise; I already follow Pam’s methods. But let’s face it — none of us are perfect, and there are times that I "fudge". Thanks for a chance to win — I love Pam’s little quilts!

    —Judy W. on February 11, 2019
  • I start out precise, then once in awhile something goes wonky, and I have to fudge😕

    —Karen on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it right and sometimes I fudge a little!!!

    —Mary on February 11, 2019

    —Yvonne Farraway on February 11, 2019

    —Susan Pieper on February 11, 2019
  • I like my finished projects a lot more when I’ve strived for perfection. Unfortunately, I sometimes fall short! Miniature and small blocks are a challenge for me. Pam’s flying geese tutorial was helpful.

    —marlene on February 11, 2019
  • I follow Pam’s method much of the time but I sometimes need to "realign" (my word for fudge) or redo the stitching as I forget about not sewing on the diagonal line directly but needing to stitch just a hair off.

    —Maureen S. on February 11, 2019
  • I have to be pretty precise but if it is off a couple threads I’m not taking it out.

    —Bonnie Leazer on February 11, 2019
  • Although I feel like I piece precisely there are always tips that I learn. Thanks for the opportunity to win this book.

    —Nancy Gruff on February 11, 2019
  • I’m beginning to get the hang of it – I still need a lot of practice!

    —Barbara Kauffman on February 11, 2019
  • I am a precise piece-er. I can’t stand looking at those triangles after they have been whacked off. I think the biggest thing in precision is to find your scant 1/4 seem and be consistent. Love hearing all the new methods people try. Everyone learns differently. Love the looks of the book!

    —Judy Zei on February 11, 2019
  • I am a precise piece and already use Pam’s method. I have been doing this for quite some time as mine were always short til I started using a scant seam allowance for all my flip and stitch piecing and found that it worked out so much better as I Hate losing my points.😊
    Thanks for the chance to win,have my fingers crossed.😊

    —Lois on February 11, 2019
  • I try to be precise, but sometimes I do the “force it to fit” stuff. You know, the “Only God is perfect” thing. 😂

    —Nyla-Jean on February 11, 2019
  • Oh, I so try to be precise, and will take out stitches again and again. Other times, I will fudge. Amazingly, after my quilts are finished. and quilted you can’t even tell.
    Thank you for this great give-a-way…….

    —Mary Kastner on February 11, 2019
  • I need practice to get my precise piecing perfect. I liked Pam’s video, it was very helpful. So much for my sewing on the line, wrong way to do it. Thanks Pam for your advice!

    —Judy on February 11, 2019
  • My precise piecing needs some practice! I will have to try Pam’s method.

    —Susan on February 11, 2019

    —Susan on February 11, 2019
  • My perfect piecing needs practice 🙂 Pam has great tips!

    —Loris Mills on February 11, 2019
  • I can usually get it right but some fabrics just don’t want to play nicely. I’m looking forward to trying this new to me method

    —Sue on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes my geese are perfect and other times they get crazy. I don’t know what I am doing differently, so I get frustrated and walk away, when I come back, the first 5-10 will be perfect then the crazy geese come back. Takes me a while to get something done if there are a lot of geese in it. Never know when the crazy ones will pop up

    —connie in florissant on February 11, 2019
  • I try to be precise but sometimes I miss and have to fudge or adjust the seams.

  • Need to learn precision; I have some wonky results!

    —Martha on February 11, 2019
  • I absolutely adore the piecing process of quilting BUT flying geese have always intimidated me.
    Pam’s video have given me an incentive and courage to work on perfecting that little block.

    Nan Martino on February 11, 2019
  • I do try to be precise, but I’m certainly not always successful. I appreciate any and all tips, and will use her suggestions. For half square triangles, for instance, I do make them a tad larger and then square them down to the correct size.

    —Barbara on February 11, 2019
  • I am much better than when I first started but I thought that the beauty of patchwork is that you can "fudge" a little and you still get a wonderful result!!

    —Kathy Kranenburg on February 11, 2019
  • Precise piecing is the path to success! I am usually very precise, but seeing Pam’s video and tips will make my flying geese much better, especially when making miniature quilts. Thanks so much for sharing. Would love to win her book!

    —Katherine K Morvay on February 11, 2019
  • I’d say I’m generally pretty precise but I definitely fudge here and there. I think we could all use some tips for more precision in or piecing!

    —Heather Miller on February 11, 2019
  • I am a beginner and am trying to be accurate but have a ways to go. A 1/4″ foot is a lifesaver.

    —Jo-Anne Cooper on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it right and sometimes I fudge and I am so thrilled when I get it right!!! I do love flying geese – probably my favorite.

    —Judy Hawkins on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it right but sometimes i fudge. Thanks for showing us how, Pam Buda. You rock!

    —Janey on February 11, 2019
  • I have fudged in the past, but after a class with Pam, I am being more careful about my piecing.

    —Mary Beth McKelvey on February 11, 2019
  • I try to be a precise piecer, but if it is close enough, then I’ll fudge a very little bit. I not, I’ll rip it out and start again. I like them precise!

    —Cheryl L Buchanan on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes my flying geese are stretched within a 1/4″ of their lives lol. I could use some help!

    —Buffie Lorah on February 11, 2019
  • I love the idea of using a layer cake to make all the quilts in the book. What a great challenge. A chance to get all the Christmas presents done early.

    —Donna Olson on February 11, 2019
  • I’m very precise when working by hand, but when working by machine, things sometimes need a little help!

    —Pam on February 11, 2019
  • You know it’s funny – sometimes I get it just right and sometimes I am way off, and have to rip. And there are a lot of times I will leave it, go on to something else and when I look at it again, it isn’t as bad as I had thought.

    —shannon miller on February 11, 2019
  • Oh I do need practice and Pam’s tip already showed me what I am doing wrong. I would love this book!

    Karen L Roop on February 11, 2019

  • A few years ago I took Pam’s workshop and since then, my flying geese are much more accurate.

    Kristie on February 11, 2019
  • My precise piecing needs practice.

    —Patricia Anderson on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I do well, sometimes I do more fudge than I "should" and end up with a block for the what-not-to-do group. Then again, fudge is not all bad; is not chocolate one of vitamin C group, along with caffeine and carbs? Thanks for the tutorial and good suggestions.

    —Jane on February 11, 2019
  • I am usually very accurate but occasionally have to fudge a little.

    —Joan Hanson on February 11, 2019
  • With care they usually come out accurately

    —Carol on February 11, 2019
  • I try to be precise and I’m usually sucessful.

    —Karen on February 11, 2019
  • Though I try, my piecing isn’t always on the mark. And though I am strongly attracted to miniature blocks I don’t attempt them often unless I’m paper piecing. Knowing reliable methods would help me accomplish much more. Thank you.

    —sharon butera on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it right and other times it is close enough! I will make it a second time before I reverse sew and that not perfect piece goes in the scrap bin waiting for a new chance!

    —Vicky on February 11, 2019
  • I have been away from quilting for a while. Getting back to it again and find I am pretty rusty. Would love to see Pam’s method for flying geese.

    —Denise on February 11, 2019
  • I LOVE to precise piece tiny things. My friends all think I am crazy for the tiny items that I love to do. I am also an accountant by trade, and the numbers have to fit together like the tiny pieces. I’m always up for new techniques and to learn something/or a better way to do things than I currently do! I would love to win the book and read it from cover to cover!

    Diane Kimber on February 11, 2019
  • I am fairly precise but have to fudge occasionally.

    —Colleen on February 11, 2019

    —Selma Pereira Dias on February 11, 2019

    Karen Jablonski on February 11, 2019
  • Once in a while things come out right, but for the most part, I am a "fudger". Can’t be perfect all the time. Ha,ha,ha

    —Janet T on February 11, 2019
  • My precise piecing could use some practice. I usually do pretty well, but some days NOTHING is the right size and fudging is my only hope.

    —Nancy McFall on February 11, 2019
  • I try to be precise and am getting better but I still have to fudge sometimes.

    —Nancy B on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes (if I’m lucky!) I get it right. I use this method and do get it right quite frequently. But sometimes. . . rippit, rippit. 🙂

    —Kathy on February 11, 2019
  • I fall into the second group. Sometimes perfect, sometimes not so perfect.

    —jan davis on February 11, 2019
  • I’m happy when things turn out just right but sometimes I do have to fudge a little. As long as it looks good finished, I can live with it! I will try Pam’s method, it sounds good!

    —Marsha B on February 11, 2019
  • Most of the time I get it right, but sometimes I have to fudge…or rip!

  • Sometimes I get it right and sometimes I fudge. But I must say, I’m so much better than I used to be!

    —Allison Evrard on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it right, maybe 50% of the time….I think I don’t get close enough to the line I draw. But I think it is when I draw the line, my ruler is placed on the corners not my pencil! Back to the sewing machine…practice makes perfect! Thanks for the video!

    —Phyllis S. on February 11, 2019
  • I fudge way too much, thanks for the video, I’m going to make the effort to be much more precise.

    —Loretta on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it just right and sometimes I fudge.

    —Kaye Walker on February 11, 2019

    —Cindy F on February 11, 2019
  • I have to fudge sometimes but am quite pleased with myself when it does all come together as planned. Learning Pam’s method would be a blessing.

    Cheryl Lemon on February 11, 2019
  • I am a little fanatical about accurate piecing, especially on those mini pieces. It just makes it so much easier to fit everything together! Pam’s tips are great!!!

    —Debby on February 11, 2019
  • Loved the demo.I like to dot glue the corners in place then fold back to check.your method is just GREAT and it does come out perfect.the geese are flying today and if I win they’ll be lots of geese flying .thank you so much more making the geese line up perfectly.

    —Susan Mandel on February 11, 2019
  • I need lots of practice piecing.

    —Nadia on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I’m precise and sometimes I have to fudge. That was a great tip, to sew a few threads inside the line. I will make sure to do that!

    —Diantha Howard on February 11, 2019
  • When I sew mindfully, the results are generally precise. But when distractions happen and I’m not happy with the results, I’ll rip and resew once or even twice. Then I’ll fudge but not happily.
    I look forward to trying Pam’s technique. Great tutorial video.
    Beautiful fabric and book! Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Cathy Cavagnaro on February 11, 2019

  • I am pretty precise, but there are always one or two that get a little wonky!

    —Darlene on February 11, 2019

    —Deborah Yates on February 11, 2019
  • Sometime it works and sometimes it doesn’t. Those points are hard to get right.

    —Lea Sheehan on February 11, 2019
  • Most of the time I get it right. Great tutorial. We all need refresher courses.

    —Theresa J Kaveney on February 11, 2019

    This website is awesome. I get new items and learn new things all the time.

    Thank you, Leslie – we love hearing that, it makes our day! –Jenny

    Leslie Kennedy on February 11, 2019
  • I need help piecing, especially small quilts like these!!!

    Robin McDaniel on February 11, 2019
  • I am very picky when it comes to having perfect intersections in my quilting, ripping out and reseeding until as exact as possible.

    Judy Garling on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it right. Really liked the video of Pam’s method, especially the hint to make sure the pencil line and not the ruler are lined up on the diagonal! Will be giving this a try.

    —Brenda on February 11, 2019
  • It is mostly "hit" now, but still some "misses," and I am never quite sure what has happened!

    —Gloria Fradsham on February 11, 2019
  • Most of the time I get it right — but sometimes I end up fudging to get the blocks together.

    —Joan K on February 11, 2019
  • Not always as precise as I would like to be. Lovely giveaway – thanks for the chance!

    —Janet on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it right, sometimes I fudge…. I could use some guidance!!

    —Cheri C. on February 11, 2019
  • I use her method. My trouble is accurately sewing one or two threads below the drawn line.

    —Vicki Adkins on February 11, 2019
  • Very helpful. I always sewed on the line thinking that I was precise and upon the flip it was not. Now I will be practicing a stitch or two off the line. Thanks. I appreciate this video with a useful tip. Sometimes one has to actually see a demo.

    —marlene monfuletho on February 11, 2019
  • I love little quilts. My piecing is pretty good, but using a few of these tips should make it even better.

    —Mary Ann on February 11, 2019

  • I already follow Pam’s method.

    —Sylvia on February 11, 2019
  • I like all my points and seams meeting up correctly. Some call me a perfectionist. I love Pam’s hint to sew just inside the line! Just the other day I was experimenting with some tiny flying geese and discovered this. Now my theory has been validated! Thank you Pam for your very helpful hint!

    —Paula T on February 11, 2019
  • I strive to be a precise piece and having been doing my flying geese the way Pam has demonstrated. I’m always looking for tips and ways to do anything better and easier.
    I love the fabrics and the patterns!

  • I’m a fudger!

    —Nancy Kores on February 11, 2019

    —Rita Lusk on February 11, 2019
  • I sometimes nail it, but definitely fit into the category of "My Precise Piecing Needs Some Practice"!!
    Thank you for the opportunity to win this great book and the fabric to practice my points with! Deb

    —Deborah on February 11, 2019
  • Well, I’ll be honest…I obsess over cutting. I measure and re-measure and re-re-measure…and sometimes it still comes out wrong. Maybe my eyes are off. So, as much as I try to be precise…sometimes I have to fudge. and I cannot figure out why

    —Geri on February 11, 2019
  • I use Pam’s method and it works most of the time.

    —Donna on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes just right and others I fudge or rip.

    —Linda Gidos on February 11, 2019
  • Just did a quilt that had a few flying geese. My first project as a quilter on my own, I think they look OK. But I love the concept of the book giving you several way to use the fabrics from a 10” layer. By the end of using all the fabric I am sure we will all be flying geese pros!!

    —Sharon Shergold on February 11, 2019
  • I’m pretty good at piecing….. my key is to take my time.

    Looking forward to improving my technique with these tips!

    —Martha Narino-Torres on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes group. I’m going to try her ruler/pencil method. I’ve always placed the ruler on the diagonal.

    —Jo Sunderman on February 11, 2019
  • My piecing is pretty precise but occasionally I do fudge a bit.

    —Becky Bynum on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it right, sometimes I rip! Thanks for a Great Giveaway!!!!

    —LINDA DOUGLAS on February 11, 2019
  • I was taught that same method but am not always on target. Always trying to get it right.

    —Linda Brennan on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it right and sometimes I fudge. In fact I have a mini quilt that I made from bonus half-square triangles that I skipped the step of trimming. I call the quilt Cherry Chocolate Fudge because of the colors and all the fudging that went on to make it!

    —Mary D. on February 11, 2019
  • I’m focusing on minis now so my technique is improving. Love to win this giveaway for more ideas and methods.

    —Judy Purcell on February 11, 2019
  • I am not a precise piecer,but have many pieced projects plans. This would serve me well.

    —Jean Gerretsen on February 11, 2019
  • Every new quilt is another chance to practice getting it right. Once in awhile a bit of fudging and picking just happens!

    —Joanne Larson on February 11, 2019
  • I am not very good at being precise, but this video helped me immensely. Now I know why I have had trouble. I absolutely am in love withe the little quilts in the book. Little quilts on a table, on the wall and to give to friends….perfect. Plus hand quilting them is just right for me. Thank you Pam for the advice today.

    —Janet Anderson on February 11, 2019
  • Most of the time I am very pricier, but there are times when I do have to fudge. Pam’s tips are spot on.

    —Nancy N on February 11, 2019
  • Will definitely try this. My flying geese often look lopsided!

    —Linda Jackson on February 11, 2019
  • My precise piecing needs some practice!

    —Cristina M T Scarfon on February 11, 2019

    —Karen D Martin on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it right and sometimes I have to fudge. Thank you.

    —LaRue on February 11, 2019

    —Debbie Miller on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get lucky. Lol Sometimes I have to stretch or ease. I will certainly try Pam’s way.

    —Pauline Simpson on February 11, 2019
  • I try to be precise, but at times, it’s just all wrong! I will definitely try Pam’s method! Thank you!

    —Genee Davis on February 11, 2019
  • My piecing continues to improve as I work on more projects. I was originally a hand piece, so tro to get similar results with my machine. Practice, practice!

    —Zsemby on February 11, 2019
  • I try to be very precise….sometimes with the help of glue. I would love to make one of those little quilts

    —Rose on February 11, 2019
  • I sometimes get it just right, sometimes I fudge it. Loved Pam’s video – very helpful hints!

    —Joyce engstrom on February 11, 2019

    —Jane on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it just right and sometimes I fudge.
    This is me – sometimes I just don’t want to use Jack and re-stitch, I just want to finsh! LOL!

    —NancyB from Many LA on February 11, 2019
  • My piecing of tiny units is sad. I have tried different methods but still have difficulty. I have not tried this technique; maybe it’s the one I have needed all along.

    —Patricia on February 11, 2019
  • I do pretty well at matching seams and keeping my points intact. I work hard to get things to LOOK precise, even if they’re not really. For this reason, I learned to paper piece where crisp, accurate points are necessary. I have to admit that I hate making flying geese units! Maybe Pam’s book can help me with that!

    —Marcia Gilbreath on February 11, 2019
  • I would like to use Pam’s methods because I am sometimes not precise, no matter how hard I try.

    —Jane on February 11, 2019
  • I am trying harder to be more accurate when I sew. Sometimes I surprise myself and everything looks great. But I still have to stretch and ease sometimes. The projects shown are beautiful!

    —Gail on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it just right and sometimes I fudge. So I can use some tips!

    —Carol Gearey on February 11, 2019
  • Ok so sewing near the line is not something I thought of. I always fudge and I am always looking for ways to improve my piecing. I am working a small quilt with numerous small flying geese. I have been dreading it because of my piecing. I am now anxious to try your tips!
    Thanks you

    —Cynthia Todd on February 11, 2019
  • I am very precise but I use the no waste method of making flying geese. The book has some gorgeous quilts in it!

    Ruth J. on February 11, 2019
  • I try to be very precise; I even baste first sometimes. I would love to learn a new method!

    Louise Wozniak on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes it get it right, but most of the time, my fall back is to make a slightly larger block and trim down. I’d love to get better at my piecing on smaller blocks.

    —Carla Swainston on February 11, 2019
  • I’m very precise I just can’t stand it when my points and seams don’t match.

    —Hildy on February 11, 2019
  • Perfect timing! I am just getting ready to try flying geese for the first time. So I guess I need practice.

    —Robin on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes they are just right, sometimes I fudge. Whatever gets the job done!

    —Linda Lee Ahn on February 11, 2019
  • I’m in the "sometimes" category.

    —Dawn Williams on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it just right and sometimes I fudge – this is me!

    —Liv Ranum on February 11, 2019
  • When I try more advanced quilting my precise piecing turns out not so precise. This is why I use paper piecing when I need truly precise work. I think this method would be a bit easier than having to figure out the pp.

    —Vickie Keith on February 11, 2019
  • My piecing is getting better. I need to pay attention and be more accurate. I will try Pam’s method.

    —Mary Lou on February 11, 2019
  • I get it right most of the time, but sometimes need to fudge.

    —Judy B Bowers on February 11, 2019
  • Although I try to be accurate, sometimes my points match, and sometimes I have to “fudge.”

    —Susan on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it just right and sometimes I fudge.

    —Leanne on February 11, 2019
  • I am new to quilting, so needless to say, sometimes I’m precise and other times no so much so have to fudge. I am getting better with every quilt but it’s still a struggle. Would love to make Tess of the d’Urbervilles….it’s beautiful.

    —Sheila on February 11, 2019
  • My precise pricing needs some practice. Lots and lots of practice! I’m a novice and appreciate all the help I can get!

    —Georgina on February 11, 2019
  • I would like to do Pam’s method. I have been afraid to try "small quilts," because of tiny pieces.this way will help me. Thanks, Pam

    —Pam Fritz on February 11, 2019
  • I am always working on precise piecing. Unfortunately I Ifall short if I’m in a hurry. I need practice.

    —Sarah Lusmann on February 11, 2019
  • I do the best I can, maybe some tips in Pams book will help me.

    —Bev on February 11, 2019
  • It ‘seams’ with my new machine, I’m getting pretty precise!

    —Melody Lutz on February 11, 2019
  • I love traditional quilting. Hope I am selected.

    —Susan McCarty on February 11, 2019
  • My piecing is usually very good, but I do find that when piecing very small pieces I have to be much more careful. I haven’t tried Pam’s method yet, but now I definitely plan to!

    Diane Nagle on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it right, sometimes I have to fudge. Great video tutorial. I’ll give Pam’s tips a try with my next FG! Thank you.

    —Kathleen D on February 11, 2019
  • Try as I may, there is always that once or twice time when I miss the mark; Accuracy is soooo important to great results.

    —Christine on February 11, 2019
  • I follow these instructions already. When my Mother taught me to quilt, she always said "if it isn’t correct – rip it out". That is what I’ve always said to new beginners. There comes a time when you know when you can fudge or not. Would love to win this!!!

    —Kimberly P on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it right and sometimes not. Thanks for the tips.

    —Sherry on February 11, 2019

    —Carolyn Geffs on February 11, 2019
  • I am very particular in my piecing. I like precision, but confess to fudging on the rare occasion.

    Cindy on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it just right and sometimes I fudge. Great Video!

    —Rose Clearwaters on February 11, 2019
  • I try precision, but sometimes you just have to fudge….

    —Doris on February 11, 2019
  • Practice does make perfect, that being said, my precise piecing is better than it used to be. I got a new 1/4″ foot and am paying attention to exactly where that edge is when I am sewing. Cutting precisely to start with helps too. Love the vintage quilts and would love a copy of the book. Thanks for the giveaway!

    —Linda Garcia on February 11, 2019
  • I always think I’m precise but soon learn that I could use a little more precision as I sew pieces together.

    —Carlene J on February 11, 2019
  • I am a very precise quilter

    —Hilda Krebs on February 11, 2019
  • I like to THINK that I am precise, but know I need more practice!

    —Barb on February 11, 2019
  • I am always learning and ameliorating my skills. Starching fabrics has helped a lot as has slowing down and being a more patient piecer. However, even when points aren’t exact, there is a Zen in accepting imperfections.

    —Teri N on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it right and sometimes I have to fudge it. Thanks for the video and chance to win your new book and fabric squares.”

    —Carol Ellingson on February 11, 2019

    —Rebecca Wright on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes i get it right, but a lot of times i fudge!!! Pam Buda’s video did help with her great tips. Love her fabric and her new book Vintage Patchwork!! Thanks for a chance to win.
    Carmen

    —Carmen Montmarquet on February 11, 2019
  • Depends on how big a hurry I am in! 🙂 If I actually slow down and pay attention to what I’m doing I do pretty well…other times, not so much!

    —Denise on February 11, 2019
  • I’m not quite there, but will be following this method ffom here on out!

    Chris Behme on February 11, 2019
  • Definitely need help with precision piecing!

    —Molly S. on February 11, 2019
  • I already use Pam’s method. I’m very OCD and always redoing seams to get them perfect. Sometimes you just have to settle for "close as I can get".

    —Joyce Rejba on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I am precise, sometimes I fudge. My goal is to be precise every time!

    —Gloria Chandler on February 11, 2019
  • I don’t know Pam’s way so I should probably learn. I am about 75 precise-25 not.

    —Christi on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes yes and sometimes no. I’m pretty good at squeezing and stretching. 🙂 Love Pam’s books and fabrics. Thanks for the offering.

    —Marie on February 11, 2019
  • My piecing needs help!

    —Marci Roberts on February 11, 2019
  • Great ideas in the video and the one I need to work on is sewing just inside the drawn line. Also testing each time I start a project.

    —Regina Harris on February 11, 2019
  • I’m very anal about perfect piecing. If my seams don’t match up I’ll rip them out until they do. If you’re going to put so much effort into your project why not have it be as perfect as possible.

    —Carol Wilkie on February 11, 2019
  • I tend to use the galloping horse rule when piecing. If I’d notice that things didn’t match perfectly while riding by on a galloping horse, I would re-stitch. Otherwise, it’s all good.

    —Mindy on February 11, 2019
  • I try to be precise. Great video. Love Pam Buda’s designs.

    —Sue on February 11, 2019
  • I’m more precise than I used to be. If my point gets cut off I’m not happy and try to fix it, but I’ve started telling myself that I’m not building a bridge, so it’s ok and I’m satisfied because I’m quilting to keep the people I love warm.

    —Frances on February 11, 2019
  • I am a precise sewing and enjoy working with small pieces. Norma

    —Pamela Reim on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it right, most of the time I fudge!

    —Robin M. on February 11, 2019
  • As a novice quilter I found the little video helpful, but have found myself ‘off’ quite a bit. Precision in the ‘thread or two’ would be helpful. I have yet to tackle flying geese, but have done a lot of the folded-corner technique to mixed results. Sometimes it just isn’t right. I would love to try a little quilt!

    —Dinah Henderson on February 11, 2019
  • I am pretty precise. Sometimes I have to redo a seam when my mind has gone elsewhere when I’m piecing.

    —Billie Shannon on February 11, 2019
  • I am not as precise as I would like to be. Sometimes- sometimes not. Love
    the book and the beautiful fabric ! I need to try Pam’s method- I would like to be precise all the time.

    —Nancy C on February 11, 2019
  • I try but need more practice with small blocks. I hope Pam’s methods will help me to identify where I need to improve!

    —Marsa on February 11, 2019
  • I’m definitely not perfect, so sometimes I must fudge. Nice to have tips from someone who knows how. Those tiny pieces can be a killer.

    —Lana Jensen on February 11, 2019

    —Deb G in VA on February 11, 2019
  • I have to say… I am one of those that try to be very precise when sewing and already follow Pam’s method. It works great and is the best way to make a perfect flying geese.

    —Rae Ann Nilson on February 11, 2019
  • I try to be precise but occasionally I find I have to fudge. After watching the video, I will try her tips. Thanks for the opportunity to win and thanks for the tips.

    —Bette on February 11, 2019
  • My flying geese always need a little help in the stretching department.

    —Karen W on February 11, 2019

    —Judy Repp on February 11, 2019
  • Most times I get it right but sometimes I have to fudge a bit…Love to see how others make those flying geese.. Might just have to get Pam’s new book!

  • My precise piecing needs some practice!

    —Susan Green on February 11, 2019
  • I try really hard to get my piecing accurate but sometimes I have to fudge a little.

    —Joanne L Wilson on February 11, 2019
  • I am surely a "fudger" if the precise measurement doesn’t come out. Once in a while, I get lucky with a great fit!

    —Kathy E. on February 11, 2019
  • I’m not always precise, feel I’m doing my best.

    —Darla Zimmer on February 11, 2019
  • I’m usually pretty precise, but right now I’m having to fudge the border for a bargello, and it’s making me crazy. How can half an inch in the length of a lap quilt make such a difference?!

    —Carol on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it just right and sometimes I fudge.

    —Judy Jones on February 11, 2019

  • Sometimes I get it right, some times I fudge it! 🙂

    —Sandy Allen on February 11, 2019
  • The word "fudge" is in my vocabulary although I’d prefer everything came out precise. But I operate more on the "Better finished than perfect" rule.

    —Rochelle Summers on February 11, 2019
  • I try to get it right. Doesn’t always work out so I’m a good fudge!
    Thanks for the excellent video

  • Sometimes I get it right, sometimes I fudge.

    —Patricia L Nowicki on February 11, 2019
  • I have heard of the tips but still find I need to fudge a smidge at times. Not as much as in the past but precision and strict accuracy has never been a strength. I will rip out but no more than 3X.

    —Sue on February 11, 2019
  • I sew just a scat away from the drawn line. Usually do okay, but sometimes my mind wanders and I get off toward the bottom of the seam. Thank you for a chance to win. Love the patterns in the email!

  • I am somewhere in the middle no matter how hard I try!

    —Cherri Hess on February 11, 2019
  • I actually do everything Pam suggests, most times I get it right. I’m working on fixing an issue instead of fudging.

    —Janis T on February 11, 2019
  • Try as I might, I sometimes don’t get it just right and have to fudge. Your hints will definitely help me!

  • I like to be precise, but sometimes I do make things fit.

    —Judy Perl on February 11, 2019
  • I think I have gotten better at precision as I’ve quilted longer. I still don’t seem to be as precise as what I see a lot of established quilter’s are. But I enjoy it just the same.

    —Connie on February 11, 2019
  • I’m precise most of the time, but sometimes I have to s-t-r-e-t-ch or shrink it a little.

    —Mary B on February 11, 2019
  • My precision has improved lately since I discovered that my quarter inch foot was actually more than one quarter inch. I just have to move my needle a smidge to the right and it is amazing what that little adjustment has done for may accuracy! Now if I could just get my rulers to hold still…..

    —Lynette Wilson on February 11, 2019
  • I’m never quite accurate and it seems feels like a guessing game sometimes to me. Not exactly sure which formula to follow when it comes to flying geese.

    —Jenny on February 11, 2019
  • Not quite accurate enough.

  • Sometimes I get it right and sometimes I have to fudge.

    —Jenny on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it just right and sometimes I fudge. It all depends on the day I’m having & how big of a hurry that I’m in!

    —Angela N. on February 11, 2019
  • I think the secret is drawing that diagonal line and not taking the "Oh, I’ll just eyeball it" shortcut…lol.

    —Susan B on February 11, 2019
  • I have pretty precise piecing. If it is off, I will try again. If it is off the second time, it was meant to be and I will just have to live with it.

  • I have been working at being more precise. I appreciate Pam’s tips.

    —Karen A on February 11, 2019

    —Barbara Colvin on February 11, 2019
  • Quilting can be very forgiving, some times precise, some time fudge, in the end done is better than perfect.

    —Jenny on February 11, 2019

  • Always room for improvement, I’m afraid!

    —Sandra Townley on February 11, 2019
  • I like to do piecing but would like to be better at it.

    —Sharon Schroeder on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I have trouble and sometimes my piecing is close to perfect. I have found that different fabrics, even though all cotton, behave differently when being pressed after sewing a seam. So I think it is important to pre-wash and press larger cuts of fabric before cutting and piecing, and at the least, steam pressing fabrics not prewashed. I have wasted fabric when I have found out that after pressing, my pieces are too small. That is when I need to "fudge", not my favorite technique.

    —Gail Dughi on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it right, sometimes I fudge.

    —Juanita Williams on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I fudge but I have started sewing just a hair inside the line and have found that is the secret to a perfect corner.The book would give me more to practice with as well as the fabric.

    —nancy lauck on February 11, 2019

  • I am a hit and miss sort of piecer, hoping I can fudge the rest, eek, sorry

    —Janet Crossman on February 11, 2019
  • Good suggestions!!
    I use a thin metal ruler from the art store. It is
    Easier to get the line just right where you want it
    And see where the lead is. Thin lead mechanical
    pencils are great too. Turn it to get the sharpest
    Point on the fabric.
    Also I press the flip and then trim. It stabilizes
    better than pressing the loose bias corner.

    —Tricia on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it right. Sometimes I have to ‘adjust’ things a little. I piece by hand and I think that makes it easier to get it right.

    —Michelle Burton on February 11, 2019
  • I seem to have a problem with cutting. No matter what I do to my rulers, they slip and that results in pieces that are not perfect and so I have to fudge. Sometimes, I just square up the piece and use it because I really hate to take blocks apart. It really makes me mad though.

    —Angela Bowling on February 11, 2019
  • I’m pretty precise! I would rather rip out and resew than have to fudge.

    —Shan on February 11, 2019
  • I normally make my pieces a little bit bigger then trim to size…then I don’t have to worry about how precise my piecing is.

    Joy P on February 11, 2019
  • AND THIS IS EXACTLY why I held back from quilting, from doing something with all my sewing scraps. I am very precise. So it seemed so daunting to attempt to start a project, a quilt, with SO MANY SEAMS and CORNERS and JUNCTURES which clearly screamed precision.

    But in reviewing Pam’s method and attending a quilt show and examining how the top-stitching becomes the vocal point. I am reforming…relaxing my precision.

    —Lorraine M in on February 11, 2019
  • Some days, I do fine. Other days, I need to fudge.

    —Carol on February 11, 2019

    Rochelle on February 11, 2019

    —Starr Barnett on February 11, 2019
  • Being precise is very important to me, which is why I am always eager to learn about new tips and techniques for precision!

  • My piecing is usually ok, but I have certainly done my share of stretching and easing over the years! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    —Gina on February 11, 2019
  • I sometimes have to fudge a bit on flying geese. Can see from Pam’s tutorial that I need to pay more attention to not stitching on the drawn line but just alongside it. That definitely is a mistake that I have been making after marking so carefully.

    —ADK Kate on February 11, 2019
  • I try to follow Pam’s method for sewing flying geese blocks. Most of the time it comes out perfectly. But I think her hint of sewing a scant inside the drawn diagonal line is very helpful in correcting some of the mistakes I have made in the past. Thank you Pam!

    —Karen Cadden on February 11, 2019
  • I won love to be précis and try my best …but it does not always happen. I undo and redo and ultimately end up fudging to some extent.
    Thanks for the tutorial- will try the suggestions!

    —Suba on February 11, 2019
  • I love to sew and after many many years I still have trouble with the flying gueese. When they are not perfect I pass them on to a friend who loves to make scrap quilts. Would love to receive you Free Gift. It might help me a lot

    —Kelly on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it just right, and sometimes I fudge! I will attempt to get perfect points 3 times, after that, it is what it is. Enjoyed the tutorial and I can see that it would be a very precise way to do it. Thanks so much for the chance to win the book and fabrics!

    —Lisa Porter on February 11, 2019
  • I try to be SO precise when piecing but still end up with smaller than supposed to be blocks. Usually once the sashing goes on or they get joined up together it looks pretty good finally in the end! But I have done everything from moving my needle over to take a scant 1/4″
    seam to all the other suggestions I read about. I’ve been quilting too many years not to be precise at piecing!! This would be awesome help!! Thanks for the giveaway offer, very kind!

    —Sylvia Bryan on February 11, 2019

    —Margaret Dalmer on February 11, 2019
  • It depends on the day as to how precise my piecing is, but I do try my hardest to be precise.

    —Mary Grealy on February 11, 2019
  • I rarely make flying geese blocks this way but this is good information to know. Thank you!

    —.JoAnne T. on February 11, 2019
  • I am pretty much a precise piecer, but I also try and remember nothing is perfect.

    —Pat Murphy on February 11, 2019
  • I try to do this and most of the time my geese come out right. I can always tell when I get in too much of a hurry that they come out a little wonky. It never hurts to have a refresher course once in a while to keep you on the right track.

    —Ann West on February 11, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it just right and sometimes I fudge.

    —ANN BRASSELL on February 11, 2019
  • I am an very precise piece, at least as a perfectionist it is my goal to be precise, sadly my expectations and the actaullity doesn’t always pan out. My flying geese are so bad I’ve almost decided to never make another goose.

    —Juanita on February 11, 2019
  • I try to be a precise piecer sometimes it works others times I have to trim a little and fudge that helps. Pams tips have been very helpful in the video and will improve my piecing. Thanks Pam for easy to understand tutorial

    —Mandy Collins on February 11, 2019

    —Ashley on February 11, 2019
  • I try to be precise. I hate it when I have to rip something out to have sharp points or seams meeting exactly, but it is worth the time.

    Chris on February 11, 2019
  • Well I HAVE to fudge on every quilt I make, there is a mistake hiding in the shadows. In fact that has just happened this week-end. Now to make up 1/8th on a 3/8 cut. I liked the video and perhaps I need more videos like that. So that book and fabric should come home with me. Thank you very much.

    —Jan B on February 11, 2019
  • Points don’t always match. I look and decide if it is close enough. Or if it will bug me, if so I rip it out and fix it.

    —Lovie Ball on February 11, 2019

    —Delaine on February 12, 2019
  • I already use Pam’s method. I am pretty conscientious about getting my seams right. However, sometimes it isn’t right so my seam ripper is always nearby. Thank you for the giveaway opportunity, the book and fabric look like they would be lots of fun to use.

    —Deborah on February 12, 2019
  • Sometimes it comes out just right! Other times I do have to fudge it to make it work!

    —Sharon Scheidt on February 12, 2019
  • I’ve been quilting for many years and I don’t think anyone gets it perfect every time. I certainly don’t. I love these small quilts, but you certainly need to be more precise with them…not as much room to fudge!

    —Judi on February 12, 2019
  • I am a very precise piece. If something comes out off, I will rip it out until its perfect. There are times I hate that about myself, but when a project is done, I feel better knowing I did my very best.

    —Susan L. on February 12, 2019
  • I am very precise, but have to remind myself to slow down, else they get messy. Always looking for continued guidance and instructions to help me improve.

    —Audrey on February 12, 2019
  • I am getting more accurate – careful cutting and a precise 1/4″ seam allowance are key! Take enough time to check the layout, too!

    —Kresti Lyddon on February 12, 2019
  • I am very precise, but there’s always those times when, for whatever reason, it doesn’t quite work. Then I decide if it’s going to bother me or if I’ll never notice it again. If I know I’ll be bothered by the inaccuracy, well then I put my seam ripper to work:)

    —Mary on February 12, 2019
  • I strive to be precise but need HELP. Would love to try her method.
    Thanks.

    —Regina Smith on February 12, 2019
  • I try to be very precise and for the most part am, but there is always one block or two that needs some unsewing and redoing. I find that getting that precision makes the quilt go together so much easier – less frustration. I love your book! I’m thinking it will find it’s way to my collection. Thanks for sharing your talent!

    —Terri H on February 12, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it right; I need to slow down and be more careful with my stitching.

    —Dottie MACOMBER on February 12, 2019

  • I love HST. I am looking forward to making a quilt using all HST. This book looks like so much fun.

    —Kaye Davis on February 12, 2019
  • Hey, fudge works for and with patchwork! But I do have to try Pam’s tip about sewing just a "skitch" to the insde of the drawn line — I never seem to get those "flip and sew" corners to meet the edge once pressed.

    Vivian on February 12, 2019
  • I try very hard to be precise. And sometimes I fudge!

    —Susan Stein on February 12, 2019

    —Pat Brich on February 12, 2019

    However, I want to learn more!!!
    Cindy

    —Cindy Landis on February 12, 2019
  • I like to be precise when I piece. But sometimes it doesn’t quite work out exactly, so I’m "fudging". Also, important to exact piecing is using a thin thread and a small needle on your machine. I knew about the stitching just inside the marked line, but forget to do it sometimes and then I pay the price when my pieces are just a little off. It’s good to be reminded of the basics sometimes.

    —LETHA SPARKS on February 12, 2019

  • I have been practicing piecing since age 17…..I am now 69. Most of the time I get it right……every now and then I may be one stitch off. I love Pam’s method and it works for me. I have even taught some of my quilty friends her method. They love it too!

    —Patricia J Georgeff on February 12, 2019
  • I rarely need to fudge – I was taught to over-size and trim down when I first started quilting. But sometimes I am working with fabric curvy others and then it may be ne..

    —Gloria on February 12, 2019
  • I used to fudge all the time until an older quilter taught me this way. I love how easy it is and how perfect the blocks look!

    —Sue Meskil on February 12, 2019
  • I am somewhere between "Sometimes I get it right, sometimes I fudge" and "Needing practice" for flying geese I usually go to the 3D flying geese but will try piecing as well from time to time. No matter how much I sew I feel there is always something to improve on or practice!!!

    —janice vaught on February 12, 2019
  • I’m very precise. I do all of Pam’s tips. When I’m piecing, I press every seam as I go and then when I’m done with all the blocks, I square them up before sewing them together.

    —Becky Banet on February 12, 2019

  • My accuracy is all over the map, sometimes spot on, sometimes I just toss it in the trash.

    I have heard of the "stitch one thread away" technique and I’ve memorized
    this phrase: stitch on the side that gets cut off! Otherwise you’re making it worse!

    —Pat Bernstein on February 13, 2019
  • I am not always a precise piecer but I try to be. I check the first 3 or 4 geese to make sure I am sewing them correctly, then string piece and check about every tenth–otherwise I would never get as many done in a sitting as I need. 😉

    Sandie @ crazy'boutquilts on February 13, 2019

    —karen on February 13, 2019
  • I think back when I first started quilting and look at some of my work way back then in the 1980’s and it leaves lots to be desired. Now many years later I feel I am a good piecer/quilter. I will tackle most anything and end up happy wth the results. So yes, now I am precise most always. I am not afraid to use my seam ripper!
    Pam’s new book is wonderful.

    —Maryella Rawnsley on February 13, 2019
  • Let’s say I try to be precise but sometimes a redo is needed. I’ld rather eat fudge than know my work was fudged. 😉

    —CATHY LYNCH on February 13, 2019
  • I try hard for precision but sometimes I have to fudge. Always looking for tips to make my blocks look good. I do love Pam’s patchwork and read her blog faithfully.

    —Phyllis Limiero on February 13, 2019
  • Sometimes I get the seams just right, other times (sadly) I have to fudge. Thanks for the video and for offering this great giveaway.

  • Would love to have this book, I make mini prayer quilts and these pattrns would bebperfect

    Terri on February 13, 2019
  • I try to be as precise as I can, but I need to practice sewing more just inside the line like Pam showed. I already love Pam’s fabs, but I am really getting to know her thru the Circa 1880 quilt. I’d love to add her book to my collection!

    —Angelia Ulrich on February 13, 2019
  • My precise sewing needs some practice!

    —Janice Davis on February 13, 2019
  • Thanks for the video. Flying Geese have always given me problems. I will try your method next time I have to make them.

    —Joyce O on February 13, 2019
  • I took a class with Pam last year and my precision is better but still not perfect.

    —Rosalie on February 13, 2019
  • I’m learning more all the time about presice piecing. The video about flying geese was very good. Folding the corner over to match before cutting the corner off underneath is wonderful. I have made many flying geese that were way off.

    —Carole Livingston on February 13, 2019
  • I, generally, cut very accurately and start out great. Depending on the number of small pieces in a quilt, I find myself frustrated because it just isn’t working. I am as precise as I can be, but I’ve been known to make my 1/4 inch seam allowance 1/8, just to make it all come together. I watch lots of u-tube videos and especially find Pams easy, concise and helpful. I’m a work in progress!

    —Karen McMahon on February 14, 2019
  • I usually get it right. Fabric is to expensive to have to throw mistakes out, so I strive for perfection. I love your way of doing things.

    —marilyn mattfeld on February 14, 2019
  • Most times I get it just right; however, sometimes I fudge. I really dislike "frogging" (rip it, rip it, rip it), so I am always looking for more precise ways to do things without reinventing the wheel. Love Pam’s teaching hints.

    Martha.Bowers on February 14, 2019
  • I am not a precise quilter, but not from the lack of trying. Pam’s tip on flying geese was great. Little tips like that keeps the joy in quilting!

    —Joyce Nimocks on February 14, 2019

    —Cathy Shepard on February 14, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it right and sometimes I have to fudge, sometimes I have to unsew and resew, and other times I say I wouldn’t notice this from a galloping horse and move on.

    —Robin Blair on February 14, 2019
  • Usually, I don’t get it right and have to rip or pretend I’m on a horse going 40 miles an hour and don’t see the oops! Thank you for the giveaway … I love Pam’s fabric and quilting work!

    —Esther on February 14, 2019

    —Carol G on February 14, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it right and sometimes I fudge, but I am working on it. I had learned this tip before but it is always good to be reminded.

    —Sally Christiansen on February 14, 2019
  • I was taught Pam’s method and most of the time it works. I do keep my seam ripper nearby though for the time I am not happy with my results. For tiny pieces I do find starching is helpful as well.

    —Maria L Zook on February 14, 2019

    —MaryAnn Hartley-Mairs on February 14, 2019
  • I could be a little more precise…I don’t think to flip it over before I cut to make sure it is a good fit. Think I need to change my habits.

    —Sandy on February 14, 2019
  • I work very hard to be a precise piecer but often times I need to do some fudging.

    —Kim Lange on February 14, 2019
  • This is a struggle for me. I need more practice for precise piecing. Love Pam Buda’s techniques.

    —Reinette Springirth on February 14, 2019
  • I try to be precise, but need a bit more practice. I’ve only been quilting a couple of years…but practice time wise it likely only equals 8 months or so. I was a garment sewing person most of my life. I’ve finally been bitten to the point that I’d rather piece/quilt than much of anything else. I sew on the dining room table and have to put everything away when grandchildren stay. I certainly can relate to this block….lol…as most of us can!

    —Toni Crane on February 14, 2019
  • I do use this method and always strive for precise piecing.

    —Charlotte Schindler on February 14, 2019
  • I really try to be a precise piecer. The extra time it takes often saves time in the long run, because I do less unsewing! And I am happier with my results.

    —Laura Lane on February 15, 2019
  • I follow Pam’s method, but sometimes end up fudging. The fault is with me, trying to hurry a thing that shouldn’t be hurried. Savor the moment!

    —Genie Gould on February 15, 2019
  • As much as i try it get it right it doesn’t always work out that way; so i unsew and try again. Thanks for the video; i am a lifetime learner.

    —Theresa Kennedy on February 15, 2019
  • Even though I follow Pam’s method there are times when I do have to fudge just a little.

    —Sheila on February 15, 2019
  • I’m a sometimes person, though I follow her tips. It’s just that my eyes play tricks on me, and I looks right, and then isnt. Flying geese are the hardest. But all her tips are spot on! Without using that method, it really NEVER comes out right!

    —Madeline Wallace on February 15, 2019
  • I follow Pam’s teachings. I find myself being a perfectionist and sometimes I get it just right and sometimes I fudge.

    —Janna Lee on February 15, 2019
  • I do love Pam’s method and her Vintage Patchwork book. In fact, I am hosting a challenge on my Blog to make one project a month from the book. I had a ball cutting all of my 12 projects out at one time with her simple directions.

    Wendy C. Reed on February 15, 2019

  • I am working on Pam’s Pieceful Pines quilt kit and practicing my flying geese. I am happy to say that I can see an improvement as the work progresses. I just retired last year at 75 and started quilting for something to do and already I have more material, kits, and patterns than I will ever get through.

    —Janet Butler on February 15, 2019
  • Always need more practice, even after 18 years of quilting. I live by the old adage “Practice makes perfect “, but learning new techniques is always a plus!

    —Dixie K. on February 15, 2019
  • I use Pam’s method and get great results.

    —Janet Dickson on February 15, 2019
  • I try for perfection, but I quilt for pleasure so it’s okay if the seams are a tiny bit off, so I’d say I fudge sometimes.

    —debby on February 15, 2019
  • I’ve been using Pam’s methods since I took several classes with her in 2016 and now really enjoy sewing with small pieces.

    —Jean on February 15, 2019
  • I’m getting better

    —Susan doe on February 15, 2019
  • My piecing definitely needs some practice! I tend to avoid patterns with flying geese because I get so frustrated with how "wonky" they turn out. The video was very helpful. Thank you.

    —Barbara Reifsnider on February 15, 2019
  • I had already figured out Pam’s method whil making a kit that used the corner blocks. Most turned out great. Thanks!

    —Louise Mease on February 15, 2019

    —Kathy Hawkes on February 15, 2019
  • My precise piecing needs some practice! I am returning to quilting since making my first quilt 30 years ago. Retirement is a great time to become "precise with my piecing." Thanks for the tutorials and great instructions for creativity.

    Please enter me in your contest.
    Thank you very much.

    —Vicki Fennern on February 15, 2019
  • Pam’s stitch and flip tutorial is excellent for accuracy. The fabric doesn’t stretch when it is pressed and the pattern pieces fit together so well.

    —Barbaraben on February 15, 2019
  • I’ve followed Pam’s method for years. It usually works just fin, but sometimes I’m not mindful and so need to redo. If it’s very small or needs to be very precise I paper piece.

    —Tawney Mazek on February 15, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it just right and sometimes I fudge. I’ve been using the method but sometimes the most diligent try fails. But mostly I get it right.

    —Carolyn Madren on February 15, 2019

    —Pam Pickle on February 15, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it right but sometimes I fudge. I am getting better. I would love to say sometime that I am always precise. Hopefully that will happen in my lifetime (I am 76):)

    —Nancy A on February 15, 2019
  • I know these tips and when I follow them I get it right. Sometimes I rush a little and then things may not line up exactly so I fudge a llittle and pay the price of a little frustration. I need to remeber, Slow and steady wins the race.

    —Gloria Y on February 15, 2019
  • After a gap of 20+ years I need some practice … and some small projects to practice on. Why? Well the first time I did some classes I made some sample EPP pieces and then made the mistake of deciding to make them into a quilt for our bed – unfortunately it was a king size bed! I should have aimed smaller. I never did get it finished. I got it all sandwiched together, held by curved safety pins and even used it on a few hot summer nights … unfortunately, one night my husband found the sewing needle I didn’t know I’d lost! Ah well, will do better this time round, lol!

    —Isabel on February 15, 2019
  • Most of the time, but there are those corners that just don’t want to cooperate! Thank goodness for the quilt saint who figured out these corner triangle. It makes life so much easier!

  • I need work on my precision, sometimes it is okay but more often I fudge.

    —Margaret Campbell on February 15, 2019
  • I have really been working on improving my precision. Pam’s tips were excellent. I have been aligning my ruler point to point, but that puts my line slightly off and the I try to compensate, but not always successfully.

    —Lynn Manchester on February 15, 2019
  • I try to get it right but I’m not afraid to "fudge it"! As long as the block is the right size then I’m good with it.

    —Kathy on February 15, 2019

    —Joye Cox on February 15, 2019

    —Marcia Reed on February 15, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it right and sometimes not! I really try!

    —Sylvia L on February 15, 2019
  • A wise quilter once told me that we hurt ourselves by saying that "practice makes perfect" because then we will never be satisfied and always striving for what we think is unattainable. Instead we should say "practice makes improvement" It has become my byword because I am usually very precise but sometimes I have to work on it. Thank you for the giveaway:)

    —Rebecca Casey on February 15, 2019
  • I want it to be perfect every time. Even fix one Linus quilt before I quilted it because the person did not understand. I do not like to sew pleats and what ever happens for it will take me even more time to quilt uneven no two blocks right.

  • I am pretty precise, and I would love to sew quilts from Vintage Patchwork and try out the new shirtings fabric.

    —Sara Wheeler on February 16, 2019
  • My precise piecing needs some practice! Lots of practice! Pam’s video was very helpful.

    —YvonneJ on February 16, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it right and other times I fudge. I think I’m accurate but it doesn’t always turn out that way. I have used Pam’s method (although I didn’t call it that). But I’d love the book, I love to learn. Thanks.

  • Love Pam’s quilts! I already know Pam’s way of connector corners
    and I works great! However, there are occasions when I do have to
    fudge sewing different blocks. Practice makes perfect!

    Great giveaway! Fingers crossed!

  • Sorry to say that I’m not a precise piecer, I fudge by adding a half inch strip and then cutting. Thanks for the opportunity to win this book and fabric!

  • I am very precies, but my piecing Needs some practice

    —Rommy Van Houten on February 16, 2019
  • I almost always have to fudge just a little here and there, love Pam’s designs!

    —Sharon Ray on February 16, 2019
  • My Precision needs practice. Having the book would be a great help! Thanks for the video & the contest

    —Genevieve C on February 16, 2019
  • Though I already follow Pam’s method, sometimes rip and restitch is in order. I think precision requires this as nobody can be exact on every single sewn seam. For me, some projects I don’t mind fudging and others I am more vigilant about precision. I guess my answer to your multiple choice question is “all three” depending on the day and the project, lol.

  • There is always room for improvement. I would love to have the book to help me improve. Just looking at the pictures in the email was enough to make one envious to make up one of those beauties.

    Joy on February 16, 2019
  • I try to be precise, but sometimes I have to fudge. I’m going to try Pam’s method. Would love to win her book.

    —Judy M on February 16, 2019
  • I always try to be precise, but sometimes it doesn’t turn out that way. I’ve been using Pam’s method and it has really helped me.

    —Pearl on February 16, 2019
  • I try to be precise but I find myself fudging more with smaller pieces. I hope to improve.

    —Barbara H on February 16, 2019
  • I try to be as precise as I can, but rarely reverse sew in order to achieve perfection.

    —Sherry Loncar on February 16, 2019
  • Sometimes I am very precise a brother times I have to fudge it. I still love to quilt. Sometimes I am challenged by it all.

    —Patricia Phaiah on February 16, 2019
  • While my goal is to be precise, I fudge when necessary and/or expedient.

    —Ellee on February 16, 2019
  • I do my very best but ‘Sometimes I get it just right and sometimes I fudge’.
    So, I need more practice.

    —Anna on February 17, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it right and sometimes I fudge, depending on the end use and timeline for the project.

    —Sally Woodley on February 17, 2019
  • I fudge a lot, no matter how hard I try, they dont line up after sewing. I will try this method. Never stop learning

    —Janice on February 17, 2019
  • My precise piecing does not exist. I am a new quilter, squares, rectangles and straight sewing. I have not ventured beyond that yet. Maybe this book will give me the push I really need. Thanks so much for this giveaway.

    —Virginia Bronner on February 17, 2019
  • I always try to be precise and use Pam’s methods, although I keep my seam ripper close at hand!

    —Jeanne Pope on February 17, 2019
  • It’s hit or miss with my flying geese, but I’m getting better. Pam’s work is perfect. I’ll definitely try her method.

    Joanna Perry on February 17, 2019
  • I start out well but always have my seam ripper handy.

    —Martha Vogel on February 17, 2019
  • I try to be as precise as I possibly can but with tiny pieces it gets quite difficult. I will try Pam’s technique as I am sure it will help a lot.

    —Karen on February 17, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it just right and sometimes I fudge. To be more accurate, most of the time I’m precise…but there have been times when I just want a project done and I fudge to get there!

    —Heather G on February 17, 2019
  • I am precise, but now I will use Pam’s method.

    —Renae on February 18, 2019
  • I’m more of a fudger – I can get pretty heavy-handed with my iron to force fabric into submission. LOL! Love these close up tips for more precise piecing.

    —see mary stamp on February 18, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it right, and others I don’t! I definitely could use more practice!

    Daisy on February 18, 2019
  • Yup! Sometimes I fudge!

    —Carol on February 18, 2019
  • Sometimes I get it just right, but more often than not I fudge it!

    —Mary on February 18, 2019
  • I always try to get it right but often I don’t take the time to check. Fudge???well maybe ????

    —Karen on February 18, 2019
  • I’m a firm believer in heavy starch!! I starch until it feels like paper. Lol. And a quarter inch foot is a must for me!! I love piecing!!

    —Lorie Posey on February 18, 2019
  • I love making small quilts, and I love Pam’s patterns. I also love har fabrics but none of my local quilt stores carry her quilt line. So winning a copy of the book and fabric would be loved.
