    15 degree ruler

    I found a thread giving the dimensions of a 10 degree ruler - does anyone have the dimensions for a 15 degree ruler please - I'm trying to make a color sweep bargello quilt.

    At my search for constructing a 15 degree angle , I found one on You tube. It shows you how to do it. You do need I think they call it, a compass.

    A protractor.

    No, I think it is a compass. It is the one with the lead on one side and the metal pin on the other. To make circles. It was quite easy to understand.

    The compass is to make a perfect circle. You need the protractor to measure/mark the degrees from a straight line. For 15 degree wedges, you would have 24 equally spaced rays out from the exact center of the circle. Don't forget to add your seam allowance if you make your own wedges.

    Freddie is right, a compass is used in the video. It's very simple to make any circle degree wedge using a compass.

    Thanks Bellaboo,
    I am glad I did not lose it yet. I thought the video was pretty neat. I looked at some other ones too. Sharpened my brain a little. It has been a while, since I learned that stuff in school.[
