Let's get cutting

A couple of days ago I posted the fabric requirements for my Sunshine on Roses quilt. Do you have your fabric ready? Let's get cutting the pieces for this easy quilt.

You will be making two blocks for this quilt - block A and block B. All cutting instructions are in inches and include scant 1/4in seam allowances.

I recommend you cut and make sample blocks A and B before cutting out all the pieces to complete the quilt. That way, you can ensure your cutting is accurate. Tomorrow, I will provide instructions for making the blocks.


Remember, these instructions are for a quilt that measures 154cm x 164cm (60 1/2in x 64 1/2in). If you would like a larger quilt than this, simply increase the amount of fabric required, cut extra pieces and add extra rows of blocks.


Cut the fabric 
From the assorted pink prints
Cut 45, 4 1/2in squares for block A.
Cut 180, 1 1/2in x 4 1/2in strips in matching sets of four for block B.

From the assorted yellow prints
Cut 45, 2 1/2in x 4 1/2in rectangles for block B.
Cut 90, 1 1/2in x 6 1/2in strips in matching sets of two for block A.
Cut 90, 1 1/2in x 4 1/2in strips in matching sets of two for block A.

From the pink and yellow print
Cut six 5 1/2in strips across the width of the fabric for the borders.

From the pink fabric
Cut seven 2 1/2in strips across the width of the fabric for the binding.

Check back tomorrow for how to make the blocks.
