It really works

On the 15th November, Deb Stambaugh shared on her blog, A Simple Life Quilts, about a quilt she was making from half square triangles.

I left a comment about the quilt admiring the fact that she was willing to make so many half square triangles to achieve a lovely result.

She wrote and told me about a favourite quilting tool - a Triangle Square Up Ruler and what a great bonus it was for this process.

I thought it worth investigating.

Eleanor Burns, the creator of the Triangle Square Up Ruler, talks about how to use the ruler on this video and it was enough for me to decide to buy and try.

The ruler arrived today and it worked for me.  It really does eliminate some of the trimming required to square up the blocks and that is a huge plus for me.

Thanks, Deb, for sharing with me - great to have good quilting friends in this blogging world.

I love the Elanor Burns way of doing things, anything that makes my life easier and less stressful has to be a good thing. Have fun with your HSTs.

I'm so glad you like it! There is nothing worse than trying to put together untrimmed HSTs. It really makes the task less of a task!

That would save a bunch of time on trimming. I may have to wander off and find myself one of those!
