  • Cut crosswise fabric strips – from two fabrics– following the “cut” measurement printed on Ruler in AQUA. (Example: For a 4-1/2″ block, cut 5-1/4″ crosswise strips.)

  • Stack and align fabric strips, right side together with lightest fabric on top. Sub-cut into squares, using the corresponding “square cut” measurement noted on the Ruler in Aqua. (Example: For a 4-1/2″ block, cut 5-1/4″ squares.)
