    Help with quilt instruction

    Hello,


    I have a quilt instruction purpel haze, Janine Burke ("easy" not for me ;-) )but it is just about 81/2-wide, different sizes of the strips, but I can't find anything about the lengths of the strips!

    Let me know if you need more information!

    Thanks in advance!

    If I had to guess I would say that you cut 8 1/2 X WOF (width of fabric) and then you will subcut.

    I just looked up the pattern.
    Are the big blocks 8 1/2 X 8 1/2? Then you would also be using strips ?(width, maybe 2") X 8 1/2.

    I can't find a link to the pattern and I am only looking at a picture so I am really just guessing.

    Hopefully someone has actually made the pattern and can be of more help.

    Good luck,

    I would also agree with MamaBear61 that cutting the strips the WOF is a safe assumption. Take a look at your pattern again, it may state something like 'unless otherwise specified cut strips WOF'. WOF means from selvedge to selvedge, or if you are using fat quarters, cut perpendicular to the selvedge. YouTube has a lot of videos on fabric cutting for beginning quilters. Here's one:

    I went and looked at the picture of your quilt and it's titled "Purple Haze: Easy Scrap Quilt". For a scrap quilt, you use scraps of whatever you have, which may or may not be a full piece of fabric so the length is not specified. Cut strips WOF, then sub cut until you get the number of pieces required for your quilt.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your answer. I couldn't find any information about the big blocks! Would it help when I add the complete instruction?

    Thank you!!

    Hello,

    Thank you for your answer. I will definitely check out the video, thank you! Maybe I start cutting the fabric and see if it then makes sense! ;-)
