The whirligig pattern calls for cutting the 3x3.5 rectangle at an angle. You might be surprised how long it took me to figure out how to cut 1.5" from the right to 2.5 to the left (I'm writing this without the pattern in front of me.).
My solution? Painters tape on my cutting board with pen marking the spots to place my ruler.
It might not be perfect, but it worked. If you have tips, I would love to read them.
