Paula put together a great tutorial on how to use these fancy 60 degree rulers. I've had one on my sewing table for ages (no idea where it came from) but have never used it! But fear not, you don't need to run out and buy one of these right away to make a triangle quilt. Paula also showed us how to cut them using the 60 degree line on a regular ruler too. This was also my first time using starch on my fabrics before cutting, as Paula recommended. My opinion on the stuff is not yet decided.

To make a quilt the same size as Paula's I needed to cut 204 triangles. At first I was like, "wow, that is going to take forever!", then I started cutting and before I knew it I'd cut 419 triangles. Whoops. I guess it will be a little bit bigger!

Now the question is: what will I do with all these scraps? I'm thinking wonky stars!
