I have a new pattern coming soon. Before release the pattern, I’d like to show you the easy way to trim using useful tools! It might make sense for you if you had the instructions though… But I hope you get the idea!
If you don’t have this ruler, DON’T WORRY! I will show you how to use the regular quilting ruler to trim the three-piece triangle square!
You can trim any size of the three-piece triangle squares easily with the regular quilting ruler! You just need the masking or painter’s tape.

Question. When making the three-piece triangle square, it’s right to have the long side of the large triangle running opposite directions, correct? If you need four, would you recommend making two and have different directions? Or would you suggest make 4 and wasting 4 halves? Hope that makes sense.
Leanne – Thank you for the question! The way I suggested here, you will have (2) three-piece triangles from one set of a HST and a square. And yes, the long side of the large triangle running opposite directions. If you need (4) three-piece triangles, you make from two sets of a HST and a square. I used this method in my pattern MILKY WAY which I needed to make (4) three-pieces triangles. It worked perfectly since it didn’t matter which directions the long side of the large triangle running. Because the color for the star is same. I hope I answered for your question! Please let me know if you have more questions! Thank you! Satomi
