Easier with Tri-Recs

28 February 2015

I’m a bit of a ruler fanatic. Can’t help it – just love rulers wink

Thinking about my last “Right Angle, Left Angle” project, where I made a cardboard template to cut out the rectangles accurately, I suddenly realised I might have a ruler which could make it even easier.

  Sure enough, I did. It’s called the Tri-Recs tool (aka Peaky and Spike!).

The original three-triangle quilt units were nicknamed “Peaky and Spike” by quilter Doreen Speckmann, who used them a lot in her quilts.

The larger, central triangle is “Spike,” and the smaller, side triangle is “Peaky.”


To use this tool in my "Right Angle, Left Angle" project, cut fabric strips 6½” wide and use “Peaky” to cut the triangles, rotating the ruler as you move along the strip, so you have no waste.

If you cut with fabrics right sides or wrong sides together, you automatically get the left and right diagonals.


Trim exactly to the ruler and you'll find corners are easily aligned for sewing.

When sewn up, the rectangle sizing is perfect at 6½” x 3½” (6" x 3" finished).

How easy is that! Making a quilt with this block doesn't seem quite as daunting as it did before laugh
