WEEK 1 – Cut our Fabrics

This week will be cutting all of our fabric for the quilt. I prefer to cut out the whole quilt first, so you don’t have to worry about doing it later. If you are making a scrappy version, you may want to cut out 1 block at a time.

Make sure to check and decide if you want to make your flying geese using the 1 at 1 time method or the 4 at 1 time method (made slightly larger than needed and then trimmed to size). If you are unsure of how you want to make the flying geese, I would suggest getting some scrap fabric and trying both methods out!

Tips for cutting your fabric:
*Make sure to press all of your fabric before cutting. This will help ensure all of your pieces are cut correctly. You don’t want to accidently have a wrinkle in a piece. 
*Cut out your larger pieces first, then cut out the smaller ones. This helps you conserve your fabric.
*Cut all of your fabric with the same brand of rulers. If you are using multiple rulers, they can vary from brand to brand and may not be the same. So, I like to stick to one brand.
