I’ve finished cutting up my patriotic fabrics! After I cut all the 3.5 by 6.5 rectangle that I could, I started cutting 3.5 inch squares. I do have some yardage for borders and such that survived whole.
After I couldn’t cut anymore of those, I moved on to 2.5 inch squares.
These are the Accuquilt dies I used. These are for my studio cutter, but they have GO! Dies available in these sizes as well.
It takes a while to do this when you have to iron wrinkled scraps as you go, but not even close to the length of time it would take if I were using a rotary cutter and ruler. I just lay my pieces on top of my die and run it through.
It’s so easy and the best part is, I USE these pieces! I have enough pieces now cut for at least 5-6 Quilts of Valor. They are all ready to go when I need some mindless piecing. I can make four patches, nine patches, stripy quilts, fence rail blocks etc.
Back to work. Have a great day!
