    OK,then why are all the marks on my ruler the same.I know where you can get the rulers i saw them Friday in Pueblo.
    I know those little feet on the rulers a pain so i can see making a template from a regular square ruler,you can use the smaller cutter than they call for.

    The two lines on the ruler (template) have to cross at 90* in the middle of the ruler. If your sewing is correct, your seam lines should also cross at 90*. All the lines should be the same distance from the corners. If one is at 1 inch and the others at 3/4, your center will not be square.

    Me too! I made this wreath today. It was so easy! I made my own template out of cardboard. I agree with the folks that say all 4 corners should be the same distance, otherwise you don't get 90 degrees in the middle. I think you can vary the distance to get a skinny or a fat pinwheel. I did 3/4
