President’s Challenge: Cutting Instructions

  • All primary cuts are WOF – width of fabric and I am assuming that your fabric will have at least 40” of usable width once the selvages are removed.
  • We are just doing the primary cuts this month. Next month we will be sewing our first block.

Below you will fi nd a chart with the strip width and number needed for each of the three sizes of the quilt. Some of these strips are pretty narrow – 1 ¾” so please be sure to cut accurately. When cutting the 1 ¾” strips I recommend getting your fabric ironed and folded perfectly – make sure it is on the straight of grain and that there are not any wonky folds which will lead to crooked strips.
