    If I could see how to work it on my 6 by 24 ruler............I am a visual person I have to see it. I just can not lay it out to cut it. Plus in my fabric i can get 4 repeats the length of the fabric and 3 across the length of my fabric is 57 inches.

    That is not the ruler that you need. For sure the angles are incorrect.

    I actually love them Sharon I would arrange them so that the plain pieces make a design. Place them so that they three of them meet.

    Will it be real dark? Ive had this in the back of my head and maybe once I see it done and I do it myself I can make the pink and yellow flower one work also.

    As a whole it usually doesn't change value. There will be some lighter and some darker blocks but when put together if you use all of it it shoud equal out to the print.

    Ok, I am having a problem. This is what I am working with. How do I get a straight edge so I can line my ruler to cut my repeats??

    I am so sorry for the confusion.

    I think I am going to have to fold the fabric to get a straight edge and then re-iron it.

    Do you have a yard stick? A long board? A big piece of cardboard? Basically you need something with a long straight edge. At this point you are lining up with the repeat and not measuring. You can follow the repeat up to tell you if you are straight.

    Do not forget to sit your fabric in half before cutting your repeats.

    My trouble is lining up the repeats b/c it does not look straight. DH found me a yard stick, YAY. Now what do I do to cut straight and find the repeats in a straight line??

    You need to find the best way to get your 6 repeats since my calculation put you needing 2.8 yds you need to go sideways to get them. There are diagrams on how you may do it earlier in the thread.

    split your fabric in half and then yes. Find the repeat width wise and follow it. If it is a bit off then it should be a bit off all along.

    Ok, I found two spots that I will try to use and if it is crooked it will be crooked all the way through.

    Thank you, Kyia

    Ok I do have 6 repeats going the length of the fabric. But only 3 width. I am so sorry to bug you, I am so confused. I am hoping to be able to work with a fabric piece that is no more than 24 inches the with and the length is that possible, and then cut the strips from that????

    if you have 6 in the length, split it in half lengthwise, and then cut your repeats from those, you will get two sets.
