I know, it all sounds so confusing but this ruler is an extremely versatile tool which simplifies paper piecing.
It helps save you time and gets you away from the slow process of using a template to cut one piece of pattern at a time.
Now the name is something else. Where in this world did they come up with this trademark?
Well it is an interesting story that started in 1995 and going strong today but you will need to ask them to explain when you order your ruler.
Foundation Piecing is the traditional name quilters associate with this technique. There are a few methods of foundation piecing and the most common is called paper piecing.
Another name is string piecing or freehand foundation piecing. Flip and sew and sew and flip are two more descriptions associated with foundation piecing.
Don't confuse English paper piecing with foundation as that's a totally different technique.
All this name-calling is a bit confusing especially for beginner quilters. Foundation piecing had a dramatic rebirth in the 90's when Add A Quarter ruler was introduced by CM Designs, Inc.
One thing for sure, it's more difficult to describe foundation
piecing then it is to actually do it. With the Add-A-Quarter ruler you
will find it to be the easiest techniques you've ever tried.
What The Add-A-Quarter Can Do:
As they say, these rulers are standard “must have” tools for everyone wanting to learn to paper piece.
You use their Add-An-Eighth ruler for miniature paper piecing designs or Add-Three-Eighths ruler for flannel fabrics.
They also came up with a template called Add-Enough to help you figure how big to cut fabric pieces when paper piecing.
The Add-A-Quarter is an extremely versatile tool which simplifies paper piecing and helps save you time and gets you away from the slow process of using a template to cut one piece of pattern at a time.

I bought the pattern from you for the Alec's Civil War quilt and it is coming along great. But I have 1 question, did you quilt through the screen printed soldier pictures or just quilted around them. Thank You,
I saw on the yahoo group that you are going to post the pattern. Thanks!!! I really like your patterns. I have already printed out a couple of them.
