Cut Fabrics and Plan Quilt Top

To make the best use of your fabrics, cut pieces in the following order.

From each light print, cut:
4 — 4-1/2×8-1/2" rectangles
8 — 3-1/2" squares
From each medium and dark print, cut:
8 — 4-1/2" squares
8 — 3-1/2" squares
From purple floral, cut:
24 — 2-1/2" sashing squares
From red polka dot, cut:
8 — 2-1/2×42" binding strips
38 — 2-1/2×16-1/2" sashing strips

Plan Quilt Top
For ease in sewing, choose three prints for each block and store cut pieces in plastic bags. Make 15 piles, each with four 4-1/2" squares and eight 3-1/2" squares from one medium or dark print (print A). To each pile, add four 4-1/2" squares from a contrasting medium or dark print (print B), and four 4-1/2×8-1/2" rectangles and eight 3-1/2" squares from one light print.
