Now I know that this looks a little scary, but this (by far) the fastest queen size quilt I have ever put together. I did ALL of the cutting in one day thanks to this great little trick.
I initially decided to use this tutorial, but after looking at the directions I realized that I could use my Creative Grids 60 degree triangle ruler to make the cutting go super fast. I just put masking tape on the 4" line (the top tape) and the 8.5" line (the bottom tape). Then I cut 4.5" wide strips of fabric, stacked it 4 layers high, and then lined the fabric up between the tape and cut along the outside of the ruler. It was so fast.
Then I followed the rest of the tutorial. Even though my seams were really long, my points lined up beautifully and I am really pleased with the results. The only problem now is that there is no way I am up for basting a 100" x 104" quilt while pregnant so I am looking into sending it in to a long arm quilter.
I already asked for some suggestions on Instagram, but if you have a quilter that you absolutely love, I would appreciate any recommendations. Getting a quilt this large quilted is expensive and I am a little nervous about sending it out!
