And talk about learning some great tricks. So here we are towards the end of this Half Square Triangle journey and I’ve just discovered “Hugo’s Amazing Tape” its a clear plastic tape, it’s not sticky, but it sticks to itself like thick cling wrap. So I’ve add a strip of it along the diagonal line on the back of my square-up ruler. It locks into the seam line and it makes squaring up a breeze. I just use a little cutting mat and turn both the block and the ruler at the same time. Yes I know there are rotating mats, I even have one…somewhere. The tape works like the Fons and Porter square-up ruler with the yellow triangle on the back – I wish I had one of those!

Keep sewing

Cheers Sewing Sue.
