Use this 45 degree Kaleidoscope ruler to cut designs created with eight separate 45 degree triangle units such as kaleidoscopes and Dresden Plate blocks. These triangles can also be pieced into a saw tooth border. Cut triangles to a finished height of 8 inches to piece blocks that measure up to a finished size of 16 inches. A 1/4 inch dashed line is printed on each side of the center vertical line so you can cut 22-1/2 degree triangles that include the seam allowance. The ruler slides easily over the fabric until pressure is applied. Then, our exclusive gripper holds the fabric in place while cutting, eliminating slipping and miss-cuts! The ruler comes with fully illustrated step by step instructions or scan the QR Code printed on the ruler to view a video demonstration of these features.
