Cut Fabrics

Cut pieces in the following order. Because the arc units are foundation-pieced, those fabric pieces are cut larger than necessary; you'll trim them to the correct sizes after stitching them to a foundation.

Click on "Download this Project" for Arc Foundation Pattern and patterns A-D. For tips on making templates of patterns A-D, click on "Download this Project" and refer to Make and Use Templates page. When making templates of the patterns, be sure to transfer dots marked on patterns to templates, then to fabric pieces. These dots are matching points and are used when joining pieces.
