This tool creates a fundamental unit that is sure to add sparkle to your quilt block designs. Although the ruler shape is similar to the V Block, the final unit has two seamlines radiating from a single corner, so the center triangle in the finished unit resembles a beam of light shining out of that corner. Accurate construction has always been challenging until now. With the Corner Beam tool, all the shapes are cut slightly over sized and once sewn, trimmed to extremely precise units with seams perfectly placed for a crisp sharp point every time. Brighten up your blocks by adding Corner Beam to your toolbox today!
The unique asymmetrical design of Aurora will remind you of the Northern Lights and their undulating colors that dance across the sky. Two simple units create the Aurora design, and when you cut the centers for the Corner Beam units, the cutaways are used to create the side triangles of the V Block units. There are some cutaways left over, so a fun and easy bonus pattern called Twilight is also included in the pattern. It’s a great way to use up those extra pieces and have a fun bonus project to show for it!
