I am currently working on a sample for the store using this pattern
The Angler 2 Tool to my rescue!!
This handy-dandy plastic template sits over the throatplate of your sewing machine and you can use the lines on the tool as a fabric guide instead of actually marking lines. Here's how it works.
Inside the package is a plastic template. The template is made up of a "key" and its surround.
Make sure your "key" template is sitting straight on the throatplate and lower the presser foot to hold it in place, making sure the needle is still in the down position in the hole.
Now, take the template "surround" that you cut away from the "key" and place it on the bed of your machine, snugging it right up to the cut lines of the "key" template.
After the "surround" template is secured to your machine, raise the presser foot and the needle and remove the "key" template.
Now you are ready to sew those pesky diagonal lines!
Place your square on the corner of the fabric or block that you are attaching it to, matching up corners and sides. You can pin the square in place if you wish. Place the square in front of the needle, matching the top corner with the needle line, and the bottom corner with the center line on the tool.
If you look closely at the template, there are lines 1/4" on either side of the center line. You can use these lines if you are making half squares and sewing on both sides of diagonal.
The tool comes with complete printed directions. It's a life saver for this type of task!
The quilt is all finished now - isn't it cute? You can get one for yourself here.
