Use this nifty 6-1/2” rotary cutting ruler to:
• Make perfect 1-1/2”, 2-1/2”, 3-1/2”, 4-1/2”, 5-1/2” and 6-1/2” squares.
(These dimensions include seam allowances.)
• Center prints, piecing and applique in each size of square.
• Trim points for easy matching on 45 degree angle patches.
Whatever technique you use to make pieced squares out of triangles, you’ll want Marsha McCloskey’s Precision Trimmer 6 to true-up those units before continuing with your piecing.
As a design and piecing strategy, cut triangles slightly larger than needed to make pieced triangles unit larger than they need to be. Use the Preceision Trimmer 6 and a rotary cutter to trim pieced units to perfect size. Lines on the rulers allow you to easily measure from the center of the sewn units without having to figure out the center dimension.
Instructons to make 2-, 3- and 4-triangle squares are included with the ruler.
