In this workshop Jennie shows you how to use this template which allows you to rotary cut your patchwork pieces accurately and without any maths.
This acrylic template is multi-sized and there is a mini version to use with jelly roll strips.
It makes Quarter Square triangles without any maths! and you need these to edge your quilt particularly when you set your blocks on point. Quarter square triangles mean that you have the grain of the fabric in the right place . Traditionally this is used in the Ohio Star patchwork block and also Card Trick.
1″ – 5″ – for the sizes; the printed markings tell you what size strip to cut and then what size block you will achieve – so this works even if you are used to working in metric measurements.
Great design options and Jennie gives you lots to think about, including using some stripey fabric.
It is a companion to the Easy Angle which does the half-square triangles.
So again if you are used to working in metric you can just follow the numbers on these without having to worry about maths – consider the Card Trick block .
and Jennie takes the opportunity to explain about why the grain matters!
