Oh Dear! I can't believe that I've missed out on Eleanor Burn's Set-In Triangle Ruler as I've been making all these set on point quilts throughout the years. Please tell me this is a brand new ruler so that I don't have to feel like a I've been missing out.
It's really large - 15 inches from the tip (top) straight down the middle to the base and 30 inches from bottom tip to bottom tip. It is large enough to measure and easily handle large triangles like the ones on my Lisbeth's Garden queen size quilt. Also, it is made of heavy duty acrylic and is top quality. I really like that about it.
I just work with my standard rulers, my 6x24, my 6x6 and my 12x12. Then I got the Eleanor Burn's Flying Geese Rulers and those made life easier - and more fun.
Now I see that could/should be using this Set-In Triangle Ruler.
I could have used it on these blue triangles - instead of cutting my fabric the wrong size, not once but twice!
I do plan to use it for the next set of triangles for this quilt. See how easy and nice that will be?
The markings on the ruler are very easy to read - and there is a 1/4 inch guideline around the edge - so I'll know exactly where to cut! Thank goodness, I really need that. This really will make triangles more fun.
This will be the ruler I will use from now on when making all my set on point quilts. Also, I was thinking this certainly will be handy for squaring up quilt corners. I've had that problem before, wanting to square up my completed quilt but not having a big enough ruler. This Set-In Triangle Ruler will also help me when I'm marking my quilts for quilting. How nice is that?
I think you can all tell I think this is a must have ruler and I'm pretty excited about it!
Thanks Eleanor for providing us with such a wonderful ruler!
