Tri-recs ruler and Jelly Roll Strips
I recently bought the book "Layer Cake, Jelly Roll, and Charm Quilts by Pam and Nickey Lintott. I want to make a quilt in it that is similar to a 54-40 in that it has the 60-degree star points. In the directions they have you using templates and a method to put the side triangles on the background triangles of the star points.
here is my question............ is it possible to use the tri-recs ruler on a jelly roll strip? I'd be going perpendicular to what the directions on the ruler say (using a 2.5-inch strip and going along the length of the strip instead of a 4.5-inch strip..... can you picture this???)
Anyway.... what do you think? Will it make a difference when putting the side triangles onto the background triangle for the star points?
