Fussy Cutter’s Viewfinders – A Printable Download to Make Your Life Easier

One of the coolest things you can do when making a quilt is cut pieces with a specific focus motif right in the center.  This is called fussy cutting.  When you fussy cut, it can be a guessing game when it comes to centering the motif.  I created some simple viewfinders that coordinate with my Hexagon Template Sheets.

Download the Fussy Cutter’s Viewfinders HERE and follow the simple steps below! 

Hexagon viewfinders DO include 1/4″ seam allowances, while the two square sizes DO NOT.

  1.  Cut out each rectangle.  (You could probably guess that one!)
  2. Cut out the center of each viewfinder shape.

Start view finding!  Use a pencil or chalk to trace the hexagon or square and cut it out!  (I don’t recommend using water or air soluble markers, but that’s a story for a different time).
You can see that the 2″ hexagon template fits inside the 2″ viewfinder with a cozy 1/4″ seam allowance.
Very short tutorial today!  I’m excited to start cutting hexagons but don’t know when I’ll have a chance.  Here are a few fussy cut hexagons I’ve made before:

In other news, I have been very busy teaching my daughter how to dye yarn and embroider!  We will do a daily lesson and either learn a new skill or reinforce an old one.  Today we simply reviewed backstitching with a tiny heart.  What skills are you teaching your youngsters?
