I don’t know if it is the former engineer in me or what but I am a sucker for specialty rulers. These two are some of my favorites. Maybe it’s because I started quilting because of Quilt in a Day and I actually got to meet Eleanor Burns.
Anyway, here are some tips you can use to make the parts to Jingle Pieced Block #1 using the Triangle Square Up ruler and the Flying Geese ruler.
For Half-Square Triangles, cut 2 squares 5” x 5”. Place them right sides together and draw 2 diagonal lines.
Sew 1/4” from each line.
For Flying Geese, cut a 6” x 6” square of the fabric that will be your triangles and a 4 1/2” x 41/2” square of the fabric that will be your rectangle. Line them up so the are centered and the right sides are together.
You will have two of these. Now you can use the ruler to line up the goose and trim away.
