    I don't want to invest in a ruler at the moment, and had hopes of creating my own template. I guess I was hoping for too much.

    I have the large hex ruler and the bottom measures 10" and the top is 5". I think it you make the diagonal lines from bottom to top, and that measurement is 5 1/4", you should be fine for that tree. Hope this helps.

    I should add that these measurements that I supplied include a 1/4" seam.

    I ordered the large wedge ruler from MSQC to make the table runner but it has not arrived so I can't help yet. I will post measurements as soon as it arrives.

    The table runner that Dee wants to make uses the large wedge ruler. There is another runner that calls for the hlf hex, but not the one she wants. The large wedge ruler is a big triangle to use with layer cakes.

    I think I can tell you how to make one: On cardboard draw the 10" square - you could start with one of the fabric pieces, but make sure the angles are 90 degrees each. On the bottom edge, mark 1/4" dots in from left and right edges. Find the middle of the top edge (should be 5" in). Mark that point lightly, but then mark a 1/4" dot exactly below it. You can now draw a triangle from the three dots. Cut out the triangle to use as template. From each 10" of fabric, you will get one whole triangle and two halves that you will sew together. I believe that the 1/4" marks will allow for the seam. Try it out on something and see if it works. Questions? Let me know if it worked.

    OK. I knew I'd forget something (lol). When you cut the fabric at the top of the triangle, cut it straight so the that the two halves will match.

    Thanks Patti, but the tutorial actually shows that I should get two triangles out of the 10" square. I will probably invest in the large wedge ruler this week, I was just trying to save a dollar or two and start the project today. I did actually create my own wedge pattern and got the runner assembled with hopes of beginning the quilting process tomorrow. My measurements were not exact, but it worked out just fine. Thanks for all your help here ladies (and gentlemen).
