What makes the 60-Degree Equilteral Triangle Ruler
and Hexagon Templates design unique?
equilateral triangle rulers measure the height of the triangle from the
center of the bottom to the top point. But what size is that? It depends.
A triangle that measures 3 inches through the center is actually bigger
than one that measures 3 inches on a side.
3-inch tall equilateral triangle is fine for patterns like A Thousand
But for designs such as Sugarloaf Mountain, you need an
equilateral triangle with the same side measurement as the sides of the
triangular unit to which it will be sewn.
In fact, all the From Marti Michell 60° family
members are size-defined by the length of the finished side because
the finished side is the only measurement that is common to
all of the shapes in quiltmaking projects. These rulers work
perfectly with hexagon Template Sets G, H and Mini Geometrics Set N. You'll
love making hexagon quilts with our templates and triangle rulers!
