  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Pins 
  • Sewing machine


All of your fun fat quarters can be beautifully pressed with your steam iron once you’ve taken them all out.

Press your 18×21-inch fat quarters to a good square shape. Make a few swatches of cloth by using a ruler and good-quality scissors. Make sure they are all uniform in size if you need them to be a different size.

Take all of the squares and slice them in half diagonally. Cutting from corner to corner can be done in one fell swoop if practicable.

Mix and combine different patterned quarter triangles to provide diversity to the finished product.

To make sewing them simpler, pin them together with your other pairs all the way around.

After you’ve finished stitching, give them a good ironing.
