Love Patchwork & Quilting - - FROST & FLORA -

■ Spe­cial­ity rulers can make cut­ting the shapes of this quilt so much eas­ier. Mar­i­ana used the Hex N More ruler and the Su­per Side­kick ruler by Julie Her­man. You can use other rulers that help with these shapes but keep in mind that you should use the same ruler brand to cut all your shapes for ac­cu­racy.

■ It’s help­ful to cut the points off your di­a­monds, this way when you are go­ing to sew them to a hexagon or to a tri­an­gle, they line up per­fectly, right on top of each other and you don’t have to guess the ¼in mark. Use the tri­an­gle tem­plate or the ruler used to cut your tri­an­gles to cut off your di­a­mond points.
