Learn to use the 60 Degree Diamond Mini Ruler

If you loved the Creative Grids 60 Degree Diamond Ruler, then you’ll want to give the mini version a go! The 60 Degree Diamond Mini Ruler may be smaller than it’s companion, but it has more than enough tricks up its sleeve!

Quilt Designer Krista Moser of The Quilted Life developed the 60 Degree Diamond Mini Ruler for Creative Grids to help you make sharp and accurate diamonds, hexagons, triangles and more. You’ll want this ruler for projects and quilts using smaller, more intricate pieces.

Krista stopped by the Fat Quarter Shop studio to deliver these rulers and show us some eye-catching patterns to quilt up with them! You’ll be able to try out hexagons in a tablerunner first and then explore her other patterns.

The 60 Degree Diamond Mini Ruler

This smaller ruler can cut Hexagon sized 1.5″ and 4.5″, Triangle sized 1.5″ to 4.5″, and Diamond sized 1.5″ to 4.5″. The grips included on all Creative Grid rulers make cutting these shapes quick with no sliding around! Check out the projects Krista creates with this ruler!

Supplies we recommend
