Fireburst Mystery Quilt--Cutting Instructions


How's everyone doing?  Have you had a chance to round up fabrics?  If you have any questions remember you can always email me or post over at the TishNWonderland Facebook Group to see what your friends think.  On Tuesday, I revealed the fabric requirements.  Today we shall have a look at the cutting instructions.


Tips for cutting; when I am cutting pieces for one of the fabrics, I tend to start with the bigger sizes fist.  For example when cutting Fabric 1 for the baby size quilt, I would start with a 5"x WOF strip for the 5" squares and then cut my 3" squares and as many 2.5" x 4.5" rectangles as possible out of what is left of the strip.

Another tip would be to have labeling stickers or make labels to attach to your cut pieces and bags for storage.  Since this QAL will be going on over the next several months, it can be a huge time saver to label so you can remember which fabrics are what.

I have also made the fabric and cutting instructions available on my Craftsy page as a PDF file and it will remain there free until the end of the QAL.  If you would like to down load a copy hop on over to my patterns page.

Here are my fabrics all chopped up and waiting.  I can't wait till we start piecing them together!  Are you getting excited?


The linky party for sharing your fabric selections will be open until the end of June.  Feel free to link up your blog posts, Instagram or Flickr pictures below.

Thank you for putting this together Tish. I am excited, tho still not entirely sure what my fabric choices are. I am thinking of making this as a project Linus quilt so might use a more child-like pull. I always have tons of kid fabric around. When is the 'next step' after cutting?

Hi Tish, Just checking in with you. Are the mystery instructions going to be coming once a week rather than once a month?

Hi Tish,
Eek - I didn't know cutting instructions were coming out already! I have to decide on my fabrics and get going. I'm sharing a post on the QAL on Wednesday - just FYI.
