    I have cheryl phillips 10 degree ruler and purchased the mini 10 degree wedge for a smaller 25" quilt. cheryl was kind enough to send me a 30 degree wedge but I don't know what to do with it. Any suggestions. The wedge measures 3 1/4 long and 2 1/4 at it's widest.

    Isn't that wedge used as a template to make blocks?
    I believe you would cut out 8 pieces and sew them together.

    I went to her site and if you click on the FAQs and the ruler, she has some info about the ruler.

    Thanks ladies. I peeked at the web site,(thanks for looking), but it didn't help with my paticular problem but maybe if I look at one of her books I can figure it out. If all fails, I can swallow my pride and just ask her.

    I think Cheryl sent me a 30 degree ruler when I bought my 10 degree ruler. I haven't done anything with it.
    Did you make the quilt in you avatar from her book?

    justok, are you previewing your message after attaching the photo. Think I read somewhere that you can preview once the photo is attached. Just click on Send

    Thanks for the Barb-Mo. I did alot of hand beading on this one. Get that wedge ruler out and try it. I found it easy and fun.

    Thank goodness my sewing machine is easier than this computer. Sometimes I just want to throw it out the window, But then how would I meet nice people like you all.

    That is very pretty, too complicated for me,
    I've used the wedge ruler out many times, but haven't tried to do any of the quilts except the simple one that uses the 10 degree wedge and 18 fabrics. I posted a picture of the red, black and white one I did...can't find it now.
