One super good thing about getting a new sewing room is that I had to go through all my stuff. And now it's all organized. I'm so glad I took the time to put everything in it's own place. I came across this ruler I didn't know I had. When did I buy it???
Why would I buy it???
I don't even know what it is for.
UNTIL - Bonnie Hunter talked about her Essential Triangle Ruler. The light bulb went off - the Easy Angle ruler is similar. I checked out some YouTube videos on how to use it.
For Frolic Clue #3 we had over 150 HSTs (Half Square Triangles) to make.
I used this little puppy and I'M TOTALLY having a BLAST!
It saves so much time, and eliminates so much wasted fabric. I'm just thrilled.
The ruler allows one to cut only the fabric needed, and to pair up the fabrics at the same time for some speedy chain piecing!
Oooooh! What Joy!
I checked several and they were turning out the PERFECT size.
Really, what more could you want from a ruler?
I still have to cut off the dog ears, check each one to be sure it's the correct size (I may have sewn it up wrong).
And then wait for CLUE #4 on Friday.
That will give me some time to bake some cookies, wrap some presents and get the guest room ready for Serena and Stephen. They are coming in from Denver on Sunday. Yippe!
