Jinny launches her new Perfect Cut 60° Diamond Ruler

December 04, 2012

When Jinny started working on a scrappy tumbling blocks quilt, she realized that there had to be a better way to produce all the diamonds used in the quilt. When she couldn't find one she liked, she designed her own!

The Jinny Beyer Perfect Cut 60° Diamond Ruler allows you to rotary cut fabric strips, then sub-cut those strips into the diamond shapes used in six-pointed stars, tumbling blocks designs and more.

Jinny chose a color for the acrylic ruler that makes it easy to see the lines on light, dark and patterned fabric.

Diamonds can be tricky to piece because the patch edges don't line up.  So Jinny added pencil holes for marking seam intersections and blunted the point so patches can be trimmed for perfect matching. She demonstrates how to use the ruler in this video.

The ruler is available at jinnybeyer.com and from local quilt shops at the suggeste retail price of $20.
