LHQ - Cutting Qtr Square Triangles


EDIT UPDATE -

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


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 -

BUT -

They are perfect for showing how to cut QST -

With a Companion Angle ™ Ruler -
by Darlene Zimmerman -

LEFT-HANDED - ;))

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!
