No Template?

No template? No problem! I had to make an odd angle cut for some quilt blocks that I am working on. The pattern says to trace the template to freezer paper, iron the freezer paper to the fabric and then cut on the lines. That's just too much work for me, so I put my ruler over the pattern piece and then marked the outside lines with blue painter's tape. Once the ruler was marked, I was able to place it over the fabric squares and cut the wonky angle with no problem. The whole process took less than a few minutes and worked like a charm!
