This week, we’ll tackle all of the cutting, which is found on the first page of the pattern (not including the cover). If you’re using a jelly roll, like us, you’ll need to trim those strips to 2″ wide.
Otherwise, just cut 2″ strips to begin with from your fabrics. After the strips are cut, follow the pattern to make the appropriate cuts from your background fabric.We love using these strip rulers. They make cutting go so much faster! Marking the cuts is also very helpful to avoid making mistakes.
Once you get all your strips done, you’re set for this week.
