 This month’s block is available at Patterns by Jen

 This cherry fabric is luscious, however I am not happy about the way it was cut. The woman in the store uses the cutting mat and then cuts it with scissors. Her cutting table was piled high with fabric, so she had very little space to lay out fabric to be cut. As a consequence, it looked like a squirrel chewed on it!

I was able to get three strips out of each cut. There was little waste and I have some of this gorgeous fabric for my stash.

This square ruler is perfect for cutting and trimming.

Easy Peasy and in less than an hour, it's done!
