    45 degree angle cut?

    I have a pattern for Pacific Rim quilt from Jinny Beyer and I am starting it again because I screwed up the first time. I am needing help to cut at a 45 degree angle. The direction states "Trim the far left of set at a precise 45 degree angle (which I have done)". This is where I am confused "Cut four strips 3"wide" also at the 45 degree angle, oh I need help PLEASE!

    Line up the edge of your 45 degree cut with the 3" mark on your ruler and cut (or mark for cutting) giving you a 3" piece with a 45 degree angle on both sides. Does that help?

    Pattern writers should just hire Jan to do their illustrations for them.

    Great, I will give it a go. See the first time I tried this pattern, I do not know where it went wrong so this time I am going to take my time. The visual helps, I do better with visuals then with words; as you can tell with my writing LOL. I will be back again, either with another question or a pic of my work. Thanks again!!

    Thank you, thank you for the graphics kudos!

    ALL my patterns are like this. I have many, some of which I've shared here, both in posts and under tutorials. There are others for just blocks as well as whole quilts. Maybe someday I'll try selling them. Here would be a good place to start, I suppose, because you all are so gracious to be receptive of them each time.

    But that work is for another time; my current list is full until into May of next year!

    I totally agree! I am a visual learner and so often the written directions just read like "blah, blah, blah" to me. Jan, where do you find your wonderful diagrams?

    Creative clutter is better than idle neatness.

    Jan, you are awesome!! My vote is we keep her for ourselves unless she would like to start her own business.
