Don’t forget today is the last day of our Blog Hop. Go over to SewCalGal’s blog and see the special giveaway.
For several days I have been working on instructions for the method I use to make nine patch and four patch blocks using the Accuquilt GO. I find it is a very efficient technique for making these blocks, and it is much more efficient than sewing long strips together and then re-cutting them. The technique involves cutting strips across the width of fabric that will fit across the accuquilt GO die, stitching those strips together and then re-cutting them with the accuquilt GO. It means I only use the rotary cutter once and that is to get the width of fabric cut.
And – if you’re interested in knowing exactly how much fabric to cut without coming up short or having too many extra blocks, there are instructions for calculating how many strips you need. Instructions as an adobe file are on the Instructions and Videos page.
