Jean Ann Wright’s Square on Square 6 Inch Trim Tool

I have been a fan of everything Jean Ann since I used the first Log Cabin Trim Tool – and thousands of you have had the same experience.  They all follow one basic concept:  Cut the pieces slightly larger and trim them to size.

This latest addition – the Square on Square 6″ Trim Tool – incorporates that proven concept as each round of setting triangles are added.

CGRJAW7

Item #CGRJAW7  Retail $17.95

Start with a square ( or pieced) and add triangles to each side – then trim.  Add another round of triangles to create a 3 1/2″ square.  We call this size the “A’ bonus block.  I love working in miniature so I was instantly hooked – and had to design around this size alone!

Four-Patch Squared showcases these A blocks with a pieced four-patch in the middle.  And guess what!  You can piece four-patches; quarter-square triangles; or pinwheels and square them up to the perfect size by using the center trim tool printed on the corner of the ruler.  I used this feature to trim the four-patches used in the cornerstones as well.  You know when you can create miniatures this perfect, adding two more rounds is a piece of cake!

CLPJAW037
