Argyle Quilt Along: Cutting your fabric

The initial cutting instructions for this quilt are simple:
  • Cut (6) 4" strips of each coordinating color.
  • Cut (24) 4" strips of the main color.  You may need to cut more strips of the main color, but we'll wait on that until later.

Cut one end of each strip at a 60 degree angle.  Aline your fabric with the 60 degree line or the 30 degree line  on your ruler.  Depending on how your ruler is marked, the 30 degree line might be easier to use than the 60 as I did here.  Just make sure you cut your fabric with the wider angle as show below.


The first step in the sewing instructions will post later this week.


  1. Very Very tempting...can I cheat and use a jelly roll? I know my size will be different in the end.

  2. I've just had an AHA! moment.....I had no idea how to use the angles on the quilting rulers. Thank you!

  3. I think I can...I think I can...I think I can...

  4. wowzers Kati what a fab fab fab QAL this is

  5. I missed the fabric requirements for this QAL where are they?

  6. Oh how I wish I wasn't moving and am on a no buying fabric moment. I will be book marking this though and doing it later. :)
