Cutting Corners for Kaleidoscope Blocks

:24 Marti explains why it is easier to cut corner triangles that fit than to try and true-up bigger triangles. Then she introduces the concept of guidelines for measuring and cutting instead of a numeric measurement, and how to use the guidelines.

2:14 Watch the 2-ruler method (the Kaleido-Ruler and your standard rotary cutting ruler) of easy strip cutting - you don't move the fabric and you don't move around the table!

3:53 See how to use the pointed end of the ruler to cut the corner triangles, which was the original concept.

5:09 Then learn a second way to cut corner triangles using the strip-width guideline to cut a square from the strip and then cut diagonally. These are also perfect-fit corner triangles.

Thank you for watching. Go to Cutting Half-Kaleido-Angles video.
