What are Clearly Perfect Slotted Trimmers?
Clearly Perfect Slotted Trimmers is a tool designed for trimming your Half Square Triangles. They save you time and improve your precision – a welcome assistance for any quilter.
The set includes two trimmers: Trimmer A, which trims Half Square Triangles to ½”, and Trimmer B, which trims in full inches. You can use them to trim Half Square Triangles ranging in size from 1½” to 6½”, covering a total of 11 different sizes.
Who Should Buy Clearly Perfect Slotted Trimmers?
If you’re working on a pattern that involves a significant number of Half Square Triangles, the Clearly Perfect Slotted Trimmer is a time-saving tool you’ll appreciate. Take it from my experience – when I made two identical quilts for my nieces, both mostly comprised of Half Square Triangles in my Ribbon Star Quilt, I wished I had known about this handy tool earlier.
If you struggle accurately trimming your Half Square Triangles you would really benefit from investing in a Clearly Perfect Slotted Trimmer.

The Pros and Cons
In my opinion, the Clearly Perfect Slotted Trimmers offer several advantages. They allow you to cut 11 different sizes of Half Square Triangles, eliminating the need to purchase various-sized square rulers. Even if you already have those rulers, these trimmers save time by requiring you to trim only two sides of the Half Square Triangles. If you typically use one ruler to cut your Half Square Triangles, these trimmers can significantly speed up your process.
However, one potential drawback is accuracy. Personally, I’ve found that I need to align the dashed line on the trimmer just above my stitched line to achieve the perfect size. This might be specific to my trimmers, but it’s something to be aware of. I recommend testing with a few sample Half Square Triangles to ensure you’re cutting them to the correct size. I would also write a note on your instructions with what worked for you.
