A Little Quilting Miracle

As you may know I am participating in Doll Quilt Swap 4. And in a previous post I showed a little sneak peek at what I am working on. Well, it involves a lot of triangles which I drew out. After I drew them I checked on my 6 x 24 inch ruler with angled lines and none of the angles matched up to my triangles, so I decided I'd just have to use freezer paper templates instead of rotary cutting my triangles with my ruler. I wasn't really looking forward to that. But I wanted to stick to my design, so I was willing.

Then I received the Tri-Recs Tools in the mail that I won (thanks again Karen!). I just thought I'd lay the triangle ruler on my triangle and see if they matched up---a long shot in my mind. Well guess what? They fit perfectly! I couldn't believe my eyes. What a perfect time to receive that triangle ruler! So I counted up my triangles, I needed to cut 52. I counted up the different fabrics I had--13. That's exactly 4 triangles out of each fabric!

Don't you just love it when things work out like that!? Amazing.
