What makes the 60-Degree Equilteral Triangle Ruler and Hexagon Templates design unique?

Other 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.

A 3-inch tall equilateral triangle is fine for patterns like A Thousand Pyramids:

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!
