    Triangles, triangles, triangles! And, oh, did I mention triangles? Once triangled, twice shy!

  2. Parsley says:

    Oh my goodness, this would be great! I don’t usually even attempt on point, but when I do, my usual strategy is to cut the corner pieces way to big and then cut them down. There has to be a better way!

    Still fairly new to quilting. So both the book & ruler would be a great bonus to my new craft.
    A great giveaway.

  5. Debra Frazier says:

    I am a beginner to intermediate quilter. I would love to learn how to use the on point. I would love to learn and teach my friends this technique with your book and tool. Thank you for the opportunity to enter this contest!!

  6. Brenda Howard says:

    I did one quilt on point and want to do more but I got so frustrated with the setting triangles I have yet to do another. Most assuredly the on-point is my favorite type for look I just am not confident enough to do it again yet.

  7. Judy Buzby says:

    being dyslexic about right and left and all manner of other measurements, this would help a lot!!!

  8. Dana Womack says:

    I have done a couple and always having to keep up with which way things go can be trying.

  9. Kathy Smith says:

    I love the idea as every on point quilt I’ve done has had issues. The book and ruler set may help so my quilts aren’t so wavy.

  10. Mary hidalgo says:

    Oh my Triangles give me nightmares. Tried it once never more . Maybe this tool will help keep me on point!

    I never even thought about quilting until after I had lost one of my brothers to murder. I isolated myself for many many months until my friends decided that I needed to live. They suggested quilting and I told them I didn’t know how. Well if you can sew a straight line you can quilt they said. Yeah, right! I kept at it and made a couple of small things. It wasn’t so bad. Then our guilt had a “mystery quilt” project, and they said give it a shot. It was all triangles! I thought they had lost their minds or maybe I had. I got through it and finished the quilt and one of those friends quilted it for me on her long arm. It sets on the back of my couch now. I am a little braver about triangles but still find them difficult.

    With my abysmal math skills I need all the help I can get. Thanks for inventing these wonderful tools.
