Cut Fabrics

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

If you prefer to make triangle-squares larger than necessary and trim them to size, cut 5" squares instead of the 4-7⁄8" squares specified in the cutting instructions.

Refer to Diagram 1 to cut all A pieces, Diagram 2 to cut all B pieces, and Diagram 3 to cut all B reversed pieces.
