Quilts: Cut Fabrics

Cut fabrics in the order they’ll be used. They should be listed in cutting order in Materials.

Standard phrasing
Cut pieces in the following order.

Patterns are on Pattern Sheet 2. To make pattern templates, see Make and Use Templates, page 104.

Border strip measurements are mathematically correct. You may wish to cut your strips longer than specified to allow for possible sewing differences.

Cut border strips lengthwise (parallel to selvages).

From solid white, cut:
7—4″ squares, cutting each in half diagonally for 14 setting triangles total (you’ll use 12)

From solid white, cut:
7—4″ squares, cutting each diagonally twice in an X for 28 triangles total.

From each red print, cut:
4—4″ triangles, cutting each in half diagonally for 8 setting triangles each (you’ll use 30 of 32)

Enough 1″-wide bias strips to total 300″ (For details, see Cutting Bias Strips, page 104.)

To felt wool, machine-wash it with a hot-water-wash, cool-rinse cycle with a small amount of detergent; machine-dry on high heat and steam-press.
