Orca Bay - Clue 3

While I was working on the first Orca Bay clue, I cut extra 2" strips of my black and neutral fabric to use in another project. That gave me a desperately needed jump start on the third clue.

It's the first time I've used my Easy Angle ruler and I'm loving this thing. My biggest problem with triangles has always been that pesky 7/8" measurement. I can handle the bias edges and I don't love the dog ears, but it's that measuring that I go out of my way to avoid. With this ruler, I could cut triangles from the same strips I was already using for squares. It's going to be great for projects where I only need a couple of triangles.

Need your own Easy Angle and Companion Angle rulers? Come back Friday -- I'll be giving away a brand new pair of them as part of the Quilter's Blog Hop Party! And be sure to visit Bonnie's Linky Party for this week.
