WEEK 1 – Cutting our Fabric
Welcome to WEEK 1 of the Rainier Echoes Quilt Along! This week we will be cutting out all of our pieces! You can stay organized by labeling your pieces. I usually write the color and size on a little piece of paper and pin it to the fabric stack. You could also use label stickers!
I don’t pre-wash my fabric. But if you want to that is totally fine. Make sure you have purchased a little extra fabric to account for fabric shrinkage and any fraying.
Make sure to iron out any wrinkles before you start cutting your fabric.
A sharp rotary blade, cutting mat and 6 x 24 inch ruler are very helpful when cutting.

This quilt pattern will be 25% OFF thru April 7th (The quilt along start date). After April 7th, the quilt pattern will be 15% OFF thru the end of the quilt along.
What size is the quilt?
You get to choose what size you want to make! This is an expanding size quilt, so the bigger the quilt the bigger the blocks! It comes in a Baby, Toddler, Throw, Large Throw, Queen and King size.
