Rotary Cutting Tools

Start by cutting strips to make this block. Next cut the strips into squares and rectangles. Most of the squares will be cut into 2 half square triangle patches or 4 quarter square triangle patches.

First, for cutting strips, I recommend the Stripology Ruler from Creative Grids. After cutting strips, use a narrow ruler at least 8″ long to cut the squares in half diagonally.

AccuQuilt Cutting

For Patch A, use the 2-1/2″ strip cutter to cut strips. Sub cut 7-1/2″ segments. Below are options for Patches B, C and D.
