    2. Align the 9 degree wedge ruler along the longest edge of the fat quarter stack.

    3. Use the rotary cutter and cut to create a stack of wedge pieces.

    10. Use a regular ruler and rotary cutter to even both sides of the sections. Trim each section as needed to get straight edges (originally 22 wide we trimmed to 20 wide).

    11. Once the sections are trimmed, stitch the sections together. Press.

    12. Layer the quilt top, batting and backing.

    15. Join the bias strips into one long strip.

    16. Fold the strip in half, align the raw edges to the edge of the quilt and sew it in place. Fold the bias at

    the corners to create a miter as you sew.

    17. Flip the folded edge towards the back and machine or hand-stitch it in place.

    4. Flip the fat end of the ruler to the other side and align the previously cut edge with the ruler. Cut to

    create another stack of wedge pieces.

    5. Continue cutting and flipping the ruler to maximize the cuts you can get out of the fat quarter stack.

    6. Repeat this process to cut the remaining stacks of fat quarters.

    7. Once you have all the triangles cut, thread the machine and select a straight stitch.
