More Scrap Busting!

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!

    In trying to copy what you did, it took me almost 2 days to get it all done. Thanks for the tips.

    Fabulous! And, as you said, soooo much faster than rotary cutting your fabric. Will the studio cutter blades wear down? If so, are there replacements?
