This tool is also great for precisely constructing flying geese and half square triangle units. You can also use this ruler as a compass and draw perfect circles with it! Before the demo ended I had this ruler and a pattern (Old Dog, New Tricks) in my hand ready to check out! I will be experimenting with the ruler in the coming weeks and blogging about my results, stay tuned. Take a few minutes and watch the video found at the Quick Trim Ruler link above. Believe me, you will be as amazed at the versatility of this ruler as I was and I know you're going to want your own.
You can see the binding join, above, as the binding strip was applied to this scrappy tumbler quilt; perfect alignment after stitching with no dog ears to trim. Nice. This ruler also has a special highlighted line at 2.25", exactly the width I cut my binding; it's like this tool has ESP! This was the view across my sewing table after lunch yesterday... it was a bright and cheerful sight!
"TMX2 Again" with its binding in place, seam line marked for stitching; and "DeRailed", in the background, ready to be loaded onto Snowbird.
I did get the binding stitched and basted in place for hand sewing later. All in all it was a good day, made even easier by a great new tool.
Life is Good!
