Comment 1: Cutting Strips with a Stripology XL Ruler

Within the pattern there are several different strip sizes that will need cutting. The Stripology XL Ruler is an excellent tool for getting this done quickly. Knowing which slots to use when cutting strips can sometimes get confusing and you could accidentally cut the wrong size strip. (I’ve done this!) There is also a link to the Ruler Stickers in the link above. I place my stickers and then cut all strips in that size before moving onto the next strip size.

For the In the Hayloft quilt pattern you will be cutting strips in the following sizes from Fabrics A-D + Binding: 7 1/2″, 6″, 4″ 3 1/2″, 2 1/2″, 1 1/2″.

  • 7 1/2″
  • 15″
  • Reset the ruler for more than (2) cuts).

Note: Once all 7 1/2″ strips and subcuts are done, I then move the stickers to the next size.

6″ WOF Strips: Once the strips are cut, the make any 6″ subcuts:
