Tips and Tutorials Tuesday – Video Tutorial: How to Cut 60 Degree Triangles

June 2, 2015

Hi Friends!

I’m so excited to report that yesterday was the first official day of our 2015 New Bloggers Group. Over 70 new bloggers joined the group and will begin working together to improve their blogs and learn new skills.

2015 New Blogger Blog Hop

Beginning June 15th, you will be able to visit all of their blogs, and just by visting and commenting, you can enter to win fantastic prizes from sponsors like Fat Quarter Shop, Aurifil and Pile of Fabric.  Stay tuned, it promises to be so much fun!

Now, onto my tutorial for the day.  Here is a video on how to cut 60 degree triangles, without a special triangle ruler. Now, it’s not rocket science, but I admit, before I realized how easy it is, I was about to put down cash for a fancy triangle ruler. So I was happy to figure out this method instead.

Yes, I know I’m goofy on camera.  Oh, well.  Next time I’ll do some cool editing and I’ll look and sound much better. Promise.

What method do you use for cutting 45 degree or 60 degree triangles? Leave me a comment and let me know and I’ll use your idea in a future tip (full props to you!)

Now, Bloggers Unite!  Link up your ideas, tips and tutorials below and let’s show the quilting world what you know.

    That is exactly how I make 60 degree and 45 degree cuts. The lines on the cutting mat are so helpful! 🙂

    This is my first linkup with you. Thanks. I am part of the New Bloggers group. Double thanks. And, I used a new tip I learned yesterday on the FB page. I clicked the “open in another window” box when I added the link for your website. Triple thanks!

    I’ve made lots of cuts this way too! Sometimes, I admit that the special rulers just make it easier to cut quickly since you don’t have to keep moving the fabric. Maybe I’m just lazy – ha!
