Triangle QAL :: Cutting

I spent a little time yesterday cutting my triangles for the quilt-a-long and I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly it went! I had 9 fat quarters and I cut 2 4"x22" strips - my goal is to start small with a pillow cover (or two) before I jump into a quilt. I read both tutorials on the Sassy Quilter blog and decided to use a triangle ruler which made it super easy - I love having the right tool for the job. I know the 60 degree ruler is an investment but honestly if you plan on making more triangle anythings you'll love it (I do anyway).

After cutting all my solids I debated whether to add a couple prints into the mix. I put the question to my IG friends.
This is a Japanese Cocoland print that I bought at Pink Castle Fabrics. I think this print is sold out but search kawaii or Japanese and you'll find tons of adorable stuff Brenda has in stock.
Love the cute, spring-ness of these kitties! And everyone on IG did too - it was a pretty unanimous vote, which made my choice easy. One more 4" strip sub-cut into triangles and I'm done!
Looking forward to sewing these little cuties together next week.
