Folded Corner Clipper: Snowball Block

Folded Corner Clipper web

My new tool, the Folded Corner Clipper, has been getting some great reviews.  If you’ve used the folded corner method, you will love this tool because it eliminates the need for drawing diagonal pencil lines on your fabric!  Here is the old method used for making folded corners:

The Folded Corner Clipper makes this process so much faster and easier!  I’ll do a series of tutorials to show how it works.  Today, I will demonstrate how to use it for a Snowball Block:

 Notice that we didn’t have to draw any pencil lines!

Since each corner was accurately trimmed with the Folded Corner Clipper Template, the leftover corner pieces can be sewn together to make a Half-Square-Triangle:

    If you do not have this tool, you really don’t know what you are missing. It is a tool that our customers and myself use on almost every quilt we work on. there is a youtube on this to help as well.

  2. Wowee, zowee! This tool looks too easy to be true! I’m making a quilt that is to have a half-square triangle border that uses every one of the fabrics in the quilt, so this would be just perfect.
