PROBLEM: When making half square and quarter square triangles from layered squares, it is critical to mark two lines 1/4 seam allowance away from center and sew accurately. How can we mark the lines?
Ruler, of course, work fine for this. However, remember that “The wand chooses the wizard”. I really like The Quilter’s Magic Wand, one of the Deb Tucker’s Studio 180 Design rulers. It’s just my style, and again, comes in many colors! It is an accurate 1/2″ ruler with an etched line in the center, perfect to line up with the corners of your fabrics. Check it out at the Studio 180 Design website to learn more.
I hope you enjoy this trick! I should be able to pull more tricks from my hat between now and November 3rd.
