Just what is the Wonder Cut Ruler??

The Wonder Cut Ruler is the ultimate ruler to use when making  half-square triangles , or three-part squares, or even four-part squares perfect every time!  No paper to peel, no fabric points to get stuck in the feed dogs of your sewing machine, and best of all, no math to fuss with.  The Wonder Cut Ruler has all the math included in its exclusive design.  If you can sew a 1/4" seam, you can make a perfect half-square triangle every time.  Did I mention the Wonder Cut Ruler was fast?  We knew using the ruler made making half-square triangles fast, but just how fast is fast?  Try 130 in an hour from fabric on the bolt, to half-squares pressed open.  We believe that no other ruler on the market can make that claim.

How the ruler came to be ....
Like most quilting tools on the market today, the Wonder Cut Ruler was designed to fill a void.  It all started when we were playing with a new design for our Mystery Classes we teach at our local quilt shop.  We had three goals in mind when we started the monthly Mystery Classes:  1) teach a new method; 2) keep it simple; and 3) make it fast!  We wanted to make a quilt entirely of half-square triangles, but every method we tried was just too time consuming.  With the help from "Stan the Man" (husband/father), our new ruler was born.  Before we took it to be manufactured, we had the help of four great local quilters test and re-test the ruler.  To those four quilters (Betty, Judy, Marianne, and  Verna) we say "Thank you.  We couldn't have done it without you!"

How you can own your own Wonder Cut Ruler ....
The Wonder Cut Ruler sells for $20.50 (US funds) plus shipping ($4.50).  Idaho residents (yeppers, we are out here in the wild, wild west) must add 6% sales tax.  The Wonder Cut Ruler can be ordered by sending a check or money order to:
