Use the straight side of the single strip ruler to cut 2 1/2″ strips – or use the pre-cuts that are on the market. Turn-a-Round the ruler to cut trapezoids that finish 6″. Place two strips of fabric – right sides together – and cut 3 pair of trapezoids at one time without wasting any fabric. The holes in the ruler enable the rotary cutter to cut the triangles without damaging the ruler. Our exclusive embedded gripper dots hold the fabric while cutting when pressure is applied.

45° Trapezoid Strip Ruler
Make 6″ Finished Strips
The 45° Trapezoid Strip Ruler is one of a range of Strip Rulers designed to make cutting half-square triangles, quarter-square triangles, 60° triangles and 45° trapezoids from 2 1/2″ wide strips quick and easy.
Use the ruler side to cut 2 1/2″ wide strips. Then Turn-a-Round™ the ruler and line up all the trapezoids along the strip of fabric and cut “multiple trapezoids at once”.
Cutting the Strips:
Remove the selvages from the fabric. Fold the fabric – selvage edge to selvage edge. Then fold the fabric again so that the fold is parallel to the selvage edges. The fabric should now be approximately 11″ wide. Trim the bottom raw edge of the fabric to create a straight edge.
Place the straight side of the ruler on the fabric to cut the 2 1/2″ wide strips.
Cut along the straight and angled sides of the trapezoids. (To cut pairs you need to put one strip right side up and one strip wrong side up.) The holes cut out of the ruler enable the rotary cutter to cut past the strip without damaging the ruler.
Join one light and one dark Trapezoid together and press then add another light piece to the light side of this section, press and then a dark piece to the dark side of the section and so on.
