    All 4 sides of a rhombus are equal length, diagonals bisect, and opposite angles are equal. Adjacent angles are supplementary. Just make sure the sides are equal length and the rest will fall in place.

    I don't. I only cut down a orange peel and there's no math there. lol. Maybe shrink it down with a printer?

    well if that is the option at the moment i guess that is what i will stick with (cardboard). You wouln't happen to know the proper way to measure a rhombus to get the right measurement would you - is it from diamond points or from the paralle sides.. i forget. Geometry has been a few years behind me.

    different sized templates? Smaller Rhombus Please?

    Hello, everyone.

    I was wondering if there was a future plan to make a smaller Rhombus template or if there is a 4" finished block diamond/rhombus template out there i should investigate. I have the MSQC Rhombus and that bad boy is awesome. AND its Really big for a baby quilt (i am planning out a tumbling alphabet "wooden" block with the letters spelling out baby's name on block tops - Cute Right?!?) But i also have three friends who are expecting = :sigh: LOTS of cuts. Thus the desire for a smaller rhombus template. My little cardboard one will not hold out since i plan on making this one a lot (and it seems my friends are like rabbits of late and it's not spring!)

    Help or suggestions? plz? Thank you.

    Dee
