At the last quilt class there was someone who had a tool that no one else had seen before. I thought I would share because I went right out and bought one, it was cheap, and it works great!
The Quick Quarter! There are others made by different companies but this is the one sold at my LQS. Here is how it works.
You take your two different colored squares of fabric.
Cut them apart lining up your ruler from diagonal point to diagonal point...
Press them open...
After you trim the tags you have two perfect half square triangles!
If you want more ideas, I posted before about different ways to make HSTs here.
I love learning about new tools! If you have a favorite tool I would love to hear about it!!
