Cut Fabrics

Cut pieces in the following order. Click on "Download this Project" above for pattern pieces. Be sure to transfer dots marked on patterns to fabric pieces. The dots are matching points and are necessary when joining pieces.

    Each heart is composed of one light print and one dark print. Before cutting, pair each light print 10" square with a complementary dark print 10" square.

Editor’s tip: Each heart block is made of one light print (one A triangle, one B reversed piece), one dark print (one A triangle, one B piece), and solid white (two A triangles, two B pieces, two B reversed pieces). For ease in assembly, before sewing arrange pieces on a design wall. After constructing each half block, return it to the wall.
