    so if I was doing a wall hanging, I may want to cut my fabric like this, not all of the repeats are straight across, some are staggered, still can get my repeats (some are straight across)

    Cutebuns, I am so sorry but I am confused already. I don' understand about finding a place to cut it. I understand about leaving about 2" extra but how do I cut it. My rulers are not long enough. I am going to have to look at my fabric b/c I don't know if I have a repeat in the WOF or not. I'm so sorry I get lost easily.

    Ok I looked back at the photo I have posted. I have a staggered repeat in the WOF also. Now what do I do b/c I wanted to make a nice size quilt, not just a wall hanging?

    can you show me the fabric? and then I can draw lines etc for you, and if you don't have a long enough ruler for this there are other things like a yard stick or anything that has a long enough straight edge for it,

    make sure you get a fair piece of the fabric if you can as well as the edge,

    Even if you have to draw the lines on and cut it with scissors it will work at this point.

    staggering your repeats like that will give you more variations in the hexagons, right?

    Here is the pic from the other post.

    I dont own a yeard stick. I also bought a triangle ruler today. Can you post a pic so I can tell if I bought the right one?

    no it won't it just means that you don't need as much fabric if you are making a wall hanging. to get the most variation, you need to have at least two wide and two lengthwise

    Do you mean I need to have at least two repeats WOF and lengthwise? I have this. Is the other person right that it will just give me more variation. I have 3 yards of this so I dont think I will have to cut out the repeatns just the lengthwise.

    So sorry for my confusion.

    I will have to count the repeats in the length when I get home. But I think I can get at least 6 WOF pieces.

    the more that you can get lengthwise the better, with the perspective I have, (not sure just where the edge looks like,) I have marked some repeats,

    The third line is a little off at the top, but see how the first two disects the middle of the same flower? pick one particular thing to find through out your print,

    OK, I'm home and I'm going into the sewing room, starch and iron my fabric again. Then I'll come take the laptop in there before I begin cutting. I'm askeered I'll mess up that pretty fabric, but it will work some sorta way, right?

    It will work Sharon, before cutting if you show the edge as well with a fair amount of the print I can help draw you lines to give an idea where you could be cutting. (don't forget to cound your repeats, and if you don't have 6 lengthwise, find the width ones as well

    This is what my ruler looks like, though there are different ones on the market, some will be using their regular ruler, and if there isn't an 60 degree mark on it a piece of tape and protractor can solve that.

    if you have 6 repeats on the length, you don't need to worry about the width ones,

    the best i can get is 4 in the length once down the center
    that is with the same flower, I can get other repeats with other flowers.

    OK. I am trying to follow along at work so I am ready to put my fabric layers together and cut when I get home but I am confused! Here is a link to the fabric I am using.
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-35100-7.htm the floral one.

    Do I cut the fabric into 22" pieces width wise (on the fold) and then on the repeats lengthwise so I am working with 22" by 24" (24" repeat)pieces of fabric? Is a 3 3/4" triangle a good size to cut? Hope you can understand my question.

    Thanks, sorry I am so confused.
