New Leaf Stitches - Slotted Trimmers for 1/2 square triangles - FREE SHIPPING
***Our best selling tool - for 1/2 square triangles***
The Clearly Perfect Triangle Slotted Trimmer created by Kari Carr of New Leaf Stitches is truly amazing (see below for details on what you can do). The package comes with 2 different sized trimmers.
We have also shown a picture of a star block quilt that we made. So easy. Please ask us any questions. We don't sell tools that we don't use ourselves.
Here is a description from Kari which we improvised on a bit to include our own experiences.
This trimmer has Unique Slots so that you can trim your DOG EARS at the same time you trim the non-stitched edges of your half-square triangle.
Please be very careful not to drop your tool. It is more delicate than most rulers because the slots are close to the edges.
As you can see in our quilt photo, the points are very accurate. It was so each to trim and square up our half triangles. All you have to do is align the seam of an unpressed half square triangle with dashed lines on this quilting template then trim all four sides with easy strokes of the rotary cutter. No need to rotate fabric to realign. Makes cutting quilt pieces go faster. Makes the assembly of quilt pieces more accurate and with less bulk in your finished quilt.
Per Kari - you can use this tool to cut different kinds of quilt pieces
square-up hour glass blocks,
trim 3-piece triangle squares,
use strip piecing technique to create half-square triangles,

You can TRIM 11 DIFFERENT TRIANGLE SIZES from 1 ½ inches to 6 ½ inches
DASHED LINES ON THE RULERS represent seam lines so you align the stitching on the 2 stitched triangles with the dashed line on the ruler for more accurate cutting; INSTRUCTIONS ARE PRINTED on these quilting rulers, so you never have to look for instructions
