Change your Rotary Cutting Blade - Quilt Tips From The Quilt Ladies

Pin It
When was the last time you changed your rotary cutters blade?   If you can’t remember it’s time to change the blade. To make sure you pieces are cut accurate never cut more than 4 layers of fabric.  Be careful when changing all blades, they are sooo…. Sharp !

I use my rotary cutter only when I’m standing. I can see the ruler lines better and I seem to be more accurate with my strip cutting.

How to Make a Square Quilt with only SQUARE'S, Part 2

Pin It
If you missed a few weeks ago, HERE's our start of the quilt.

Now that you have your 16 blocks finished it’s time to do some arranging. I lay mine out, 4 cross and 4 down. I used to lay them out on the floor, at one house I had a felt wall but with age I lay them out on my bed, I like the white so that nothing takes away from my pieces.

How to Make a Square Quilt with only SQUARE'S

Now is the time to move them around, so that you like the placement.

Cut  40 (mine soft gray) – 2 1/2” x 6 1/2”

Piece the border piece between each quilt block, for each row


How to Make a Square Quilt with only SQUARE'S, Part 2

Inside borders.

Take one 2 1/2” x 2 1/2” Square,  add 2 1/2” x 6 1/2” keep doing this until your row looks like this.

Nine patch quilt blocks
Do this ROW as above 5 times, using different colored squares, making no row the same.

How to Make a Square Quilt with only SQUARE'S

Piece the border to each row, and row the rows together.
How to Make a Square Quilt with only SQUARE'S, Part 2

When you finish all the rows you will have the center of the quilt.
