One example that I just discovered is how to improve the normal technique for cutting Double Pinwheels. A while back, I found this excellent tutorial using strips. I made a sample and stuck it aside. When working on the presentation, it dawned on me that I could use the Easy Angle Ruler to do a quicker, more accurate job.
I started the same way, seaming two strips and pressing to the dark.
|Strips nested on top, opposite values.|
|Done with the EZ angle ruler.|
|I drew pencil lines to show you where I was going to cut. This one is with Bonnie Hunter's ruler- either one works.|
So, remember be Ruler Smart, and you can discover a better way to get where you want.
