I just use the 30 or 45 or 60 (opposite of 30) degree markings on one of my bigger rulers.

Really good for hexagonal table toppers.

I use mine for the tablerunner out of border fabric that the ends are cut at 60 for a cool design. I also plan to use mine on a new OBW.

Get Kaye Wood's 'Starmaker 6' ruler, same as a 60 degree ruler. She has lots of patterns that go with it and you can use it for what ever pattern that calls for a 60 degree cut..... Here is her site: http://www.kayewood.com/item/Starmak...mplate/219/c64

Did you have trouble finding one to be waiting so long? I don't see them in shops much anymore. I find a set of EZ pretty colored rulers by Darlene Zimmerman at Tuesday Morning store every now and then: Hexagon, triangle, 45 and a 60. The 60 is a bright orange.

There are several different types of 60 degree rulers (and I may have them all). Some have a blunt tip, others a sharp tip. Some are marked with inches measured along the sides, others with inches measured straight up from the base. Each different style works best in certain situations, so you may find that you want more than one of these rulers!

I use mine for strip cutting when I am using triangles in the quilt. I do prefer the blunt tip marking.
