Easy Angle Rulers in three sizes

Easy Angle Rulers by Sharon Hultgren

How to use the Easy Angle Ruler, Step OneThis ruler is designed to be used for half square triangles. Lay it over a strip of fabric (matching the line on the ruler) to cut your first triangle (the picture thumbnail to the left). Then flip it to cut the second one (the picture thumbnail to the right). The numbers along the side of the ruler give the size of the HST you will make using each of the strip sizes shown. Fast - Accurate!

 How to use the Easy Angle Ruler, Step TwoTriangles can now be cut from the same strips used for squares. You can even use the lines on this ruler to cut the squares. Built in 1/4" seam allowance.  These rulers cover all the bases. They're thick and sturdy, so they'll stand up to years of wear. Cut triangles, squares, and attic window shapes all from the same strip of fabric.  

Three sizes:

Easy Rule Jr

The Easy Rule Jr measures 3 1/2" x 9".  Use for cutting strips, squares, borders and for squaring blocks 45º and 60º lines for mitering corners and cutting triangles.  Lines and numbers are easy to read.

Easy Rule Ruler

The Easy Rule II measures 6 1/2" x 24" to reach across the entire width of folded fabric.  Marked at 3/8", 5/8" and 7/8" intervals 45º and 60º lines for mitering corners and cutting triangles. Lines and numbers are easy to read.

Easy Square Jr by Sharon Hultgren

The Easy Square Jr is great to square blocks up to 6".  Marked with 45º angle lines.  Big numbers, easier to see with a built in 1/4" seam allowance.

TriRecs ToolTri-Recs Tool

The Tri-Recs Tools are two handy tools that will make cutting a 60 degree triangle or divided rectangles a breeze. Cuts many sizes of triangles and divided rectangles from e

ven size strips of fabric. The cut-off "Magic Angle" and built in 1/4" seam allowance makes it easy to align and sew accurately.

Marti Michell Flying Geese Ruler

Flying Geese Ruler

Easily cut both triangles for Flying Geese units in 5 sizes with this ruler! It makes Flying Geese Blocks 2 1/2" by 5", 3" by 6", 3 1/2" by 7", 4" by 8" and 4 1/2" by 9".  Instructions come with the ruler. Just cut strips according to the widths marked on the ruler and align the ruler on the strips using the appropriate horizontal or vertical line to cut triangles. Nip the points using the ruler's special engineered corners for perfect sewing alignment. 

Marti Michell Log Cabin Ruler

This is a great log cabin ruler by Marti Michell. Makes calculating and cutting those log cabin strips a breeze. Ruler is marked with both a letter and the actual length in inches for each strip, just the lines you need, so there's no distraction, no confusion, no unnecessary information. Finished strip widths are 2:1, so you can cut strips from both sides to make Off-center Log Cabin blocks.

Each ruler comes with instructions for cutting strips the correct width and chain piecing blocks. We think you'll be amazed at how much easier it is to piece Log Cabin blocks from exact-size strips.  The ruler above is shown close-up so you can see some of the great advantages. Cut strip lengths are shown in the ovals; this is also the unfinished block size if you stop adding strips at a particular point.

Log Cabin Rulers from Marti Michell

Marti Michell Kaleido Ruler

Kaleido-Ruler
Use the large ruler to make 6" to 16" blocks.

Companion Angle Ruler

This ruler measures the triangle on the side because the finished side is the only measurement that is common to all shapes in this family. Other triangle rulers on the market measure the height of the triangle from the center of the bottom to the top point.  Not sure how to use it?


Diagonal Set Ruler from Marti Michell

Diagonal Set Triangle Ruler  One multi-size ruler offers a no-math solution for cutting both the corner triangles and the larger setting triangles that are needed when patchwork blocks are set on point. Available in two sizes, each ruler is small enough to handle easily and large enough to get the job done.

The small ruler is perfect for small quilts, many border designs and even many square-in-a-square designs.  These rulers are marked in 1/2-inch increments by the finished block size. Because corner and setting triangles are often odd measurements, it is easier to use the ruler to measure and cut the strip than to try to find the exact place on a rotary cutting ruler.

These rulers can be ordered online at Quiltbug.com or by calling toll free 1-888-817-6577

Omngrid Square Ruler
Omnigrid Rectangular Ruler

Right Triangle Ruler

The Omnigrid 96 and 98

This ruler uses strips the size of the finished block to cut the triangles.  Just layer a light and dark strip right sides together and use the ruler to cut out triangles. The 1/4" seam allowance is already calculated for you.  For example, to make 2 1/2" HSTs, you would use the 2" line.  Because of the blunt end on the ruler, your triangles will already have the "dog ear" cut off. This makes them easier to feed through the machine as the tiny triangle point doesn't get caught in the feed dogs. 

Omnigrid 98LMade from a durable, premium quality acrylic plastic and laser cut for a smooth edge that allows for easier, deeper cutting of fabric layers. The patented double line effect is printed in black and yellow which allows the user to see the grid on both dark and light fabrics. Designed for left and right handed users. The Omnigrid 98 (right) works the same way, but it cuts quarter square triangles.

Sew on both sides of the bias lineAnother method of making half square triangles is to place two squares right side together, draw a line on the diagonal of the lighter square, then sew 1/4" from this line on both sides. Cut on the diagonal line and you will have two half square triangles. The squares you start out with should be 7/8" larger than the finished size of the final HST.  The Quick Quarter ruler (below) is made to help with this.  It is exactly 1/2" wide so you can draw the sewing line, and has slots in the center so you can draw the cutting line. The package includes full instructions on how to cut and make 1/2 square and 1/4 square blocks.

Wonder Cut Ruler

The Wonder Cut Ruler is the ultimate ruler to use when making half-square triangles , or three-part squares, or even four-part squares perfect every time!  No paper to peel, no fabric points to get stuck in the feed dogs of your sewing machine, and best of all, no math to fuss with.  The Wonder Cut Ruler has all the math included in its exclusive design.  If you can sew a 1/4" seam, you can make a perfect half-square triangle every time.  Great for beginners! 

Use the lines on the long side of the ruler to cut strips, then sew the strips together the long way, making a tube. Use the diagonal lines on the corner of the ruler to cut triangles from this tube.  Open them up and you have HSTs.  Although this ruler produces half square triangle blocks which have the outer edge on the bias, the fact the seam is sewn on the straight of grain keeps the blocks stable.

For more details and quilt block ideas, visit the Wondercut Ruler website.  We also have a free pattern Aurora Borealis that uses this method.
