FAB­RICS USED

Print fab­rics are from the Foun­da­tion col­lec­tion by Sas­safras Lane De­signs for Wind­ham Fab­rics.

CUT­TING OUT

1 Sort the fab­rics into nine pairs, with one light and one dark print in each pair. The light fab­rics will form the cen­tre rings of each block, while the dark

fab­rics will form the outer rings of each block, as shown in the Lay­out Di­a­gram.

2 From each of the light prints cut:

■ Four (4) 3in squares.

■ Four (4) 4in squares. Sub­cut each square on the di­ag­o­nal to make two (2) tri­an­gles from each. The smaller tri­an­gles are for Sec­tions 2A and 2B. The larger tri­an­gles are for Sec­tions 5A and 5B. 3 From each of the dark prints cut:

■ Four (4) 5in squares.

■ Four (4) 6 in squares. Sub­cut each square on the di­ag­o­nal to make two (2) tri­an­gles from each. The smaller tri­an­gles are for Sec­tions 8A and 8B. The larger tri­an­gles are for Sec­tions 11A and 11B.
