1-301 Wing Clipper I®, Pickets and Quickets
Put your flying geese on the right track by pointing them in the right direction. Learn the simple secrets to creating crisp, clean units effectively and quickly. This method can be applied to any pattern that requires flying geese units. Since you usually have to make hundreds of these units at a time, why not make them perfect every time?
Expand the use of your Wing Clipper I® by learning how to make Pickets and Quickets. Once you begin to recognize these units, you’ll be surprised how often they appear in patterns from your favorite magazines and designers. You’ll want to add Pickets and Quickets to your border options.
