Sunshine - Ready, Set, Slash!

I've completed all the Sunshine blocks. Now I have to cut each one into four pieces, like the block above.First, line up the ruler to make the first cut.

Without moving the block, move the ruler 90 degrees, line up and make the second cut.

I place these blocks on the corner of my cutting table so I can cut easily from both sides. I don't move the block, I move myself around the corner to the other side of the table to make the second cut.

Now I'm really excited.

You need to get Rotating Mat in size 17 inches. Here's a link to see one but I'm sure if you search around you can find a much better price

I love mine and use it all the time.

This looks like it is done like the disappearing 9 patch, a pattern I really like, especially for charity quilts. I may have to try it.

I'm watching the progress closely ~ love the sunny colors! I've added your pattern to my "gestation" notebook (I see one of these in my future, although I'm not sure exactly when...)
