I also found these rulers lurking in my ruler hoard. I tell you cleaning out and rearranging my sewing space last spring has been the best thing I've done in ages. I now know what fabric I have at a glance (amazing border print) and what rulers I have (not one but two 60 degree rulers!). I don't have to buy anything to get started right away.
Time to make those cuts. Full disclosure here - I miscut the very first cut and so wasted the first 10 or 11 inches of my fabric. Oh well, good thing I have more than the recommended yardage. One reason I always buy more than the project suggests.
Now on to the sewing. It's pretty clear that this project's success depends on accuracy in cutting and especially sewing. To help with the cutting I think starch is the answer. These are bias edges here and bias moves so starch really helps. Best Press is not the best for this you really need starch to make the fabric stable. Best Press, which I love for most of the time is more of a sizing and just not stiff enough.

That's the longest seam and each match point is pinned especially the center point.
I'm satisfied with today's effort, I need a break.
Until next time,
