Missing....

My friend, Janet of The Empty Nest, just posted about her missing mojo...blogging mojo that is.  Well as you have noticed I too have been lacking in the blogging department..cause yes, my blogging mojo is missing....but I think I have a clue as to where both of our mojo's are....

How Do You HST?

It's not that half square triangles are hard but they can be such a pain to square up, yes I know there are lots of rulers that have lines that allow you to line up with your seam and trim that way but some of those rulers have way TOO many lines...I finally found one that I love and I mean LOVE.  The Tucker Trimmer from Deb Tucker is the perfect HST ruler...you don't believe me...well here's proof...


My HST before trimming

Nice clean lines on ruler 


Lined up and ready for first trim


see the little snippets from the second trim?


this is the pile from 152 HST...not much waste...


Perfect....

Perfect x 152...



Tucker Trimmer 1
trims up to 6 1/2" HST or Blocks


I love the Tucker Trimmer so much that I'm offer a 10% discount in our online store, www.kellyannsquilting.com  enter discount code TTR212, sale ends next Wednesday, February 21st...so don't wait...you will be making HST all day long...

and one more tip...there are just the right amount of lines that if you need to cut a gazillion 5" squares that you can cut your strips then use this handy dandy ruler and cut PERFECT 5" squares...

Until Next Time
