LHQ - Cutting Qtr Square Triangles


Since posting this post -
I designed a LEFT-HANDED ruler to cut HST and QST -

No more Flippin' rulers!! -
I call it a LEFT-EZE™ Rule -
Check it out on my other blog - HERE - ;))


I was looking though some old photos -

And found these -

I couldn’t remember why I didn’t post them -

Along with my LHQSQ blocks -

Then I realized that they were the wrong size -


They are perfect for showing how to cut QST -

With a Companion Angle ™ Ruler -
by Darlene Zimmerman -


Follow the directions on the ruler for the CORRECT strip size -
That’s where I messed up - I cut the strips the wrong size - ;))

Cut two strips and layer them right sides together -

Start at the RIGHT end of the strip -
And cut UP the LEFT side and DOWN the RIGHT side of the ruler -

Rotate the ruler -
Moving it to the LEFT of the one you just cut -
And cut UP the LEFT side again -

Separate your pieces -

Lay them out -

Sew them together -

All done - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

Pretty slick! I used to use the EZ angle ruler---a lot and had occasional use for this. the two work well together.

I met Darlene Zimmerman years ago along with her friend Joy Hoffman---before she was a more household name. Early books in 92, 93 even autographed.

Hope you have had a good day!
