Easy Angle Ruler



You can teach old dogs new tricks! I did two of Bonnie's first Mystery Quilt using the traditional method of cutting half-square triangles. I was feeling quite daunted about doing 142 of these tiny little 3" blocks for second Mystery Quilt, Orange Crush. Julia loaned me her Easy Angle Ruler and it is just wonderful - I have already done 100 since 1pm yesterday - did sew into the night though, which I rarely do. Poor Mum must be feeling neglected! I'll be tracking a ruler down tomorrow.

Off to bath puppies, now, then shop, then cook for the sewing girls coming here on Tuesday.


'Bye for now,

Your step two pieces look great! I think mine look wonkier than that, but now I think I get how it goes so they should improve soon. Way to go!

Lurline, your blog is looking very nice. I like your fabrics in the Orange Crush--it'll be fun to see these finished!
