60 degrees


I am enjoying playing these days. I have this 60 degree ruler that I'm becoming friends with. I used it to cut up some strips to test a theory. It worked!


The strips are different sizes to prove that it doesn't matter if the strips are different sizes. Cut at 60 degrees they will all turn the corners just fine.







There are so many ways you can arrange the triangles!



I like what I settled on. It was a fun experiment. I'll set it aside for now so I can keep playing.

Thank you Christina for the inspiration, I had once made some place mats using a striped fabric and having the triangles only the two edges, but I love the zig zag you have produced!

Having a dumb moment here.... What do you mean with 'it doesn't matter if the strips are different sizes'? The strips look exactly the same to me.... LUV the combinations!

Christina said...

Hi Trix, I mean the different colored strips are not all the same size!
