Guidelines Seam Allowance Additions

guidelines additionsIt might surprise you to learn that the quarter-inch seam allowances you have been cutting with your quilting ruler have actually been incorrect.  Your ruler rounds to the nearest 1/8th of an inch, which can cause your pieces to come out slightly wrong.  To fix that, just attach this ruler add-on and align your ruler with the patch size you’d like to cut.  The extension with the add-on will give you the exact seam allowance you need.  The three pack contains the add-ons to give you the correct seam allowances for squares, half-square triangles, and quarter-square triangles.  These ruler additions also have a built-in finger guard to help you avoid nasty cuts.  They will attach to your acrylic quilting rulers; additions made specifically for the official Guidelines Ruler are sold separately.
