LHQ - Cutting Qtr Square Triangles

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 -

  1. 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!


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
