‘Summer Bouquets’ cutting out

The 'Summer Bouquets' quilt which forms the quiltalong 2021 with Amanda Jane Textiles

The quantities required for the quilt and links to the fabrics are given in January’s post here

The instructions for cutting out all the fabrics for the ‘Summer Bouquets’ quilt are below. Please read the special note about cutting the fabric into rectangles below.

PLEASE NOTE: The rectangles in this quilt are oblongs, not squares, so it is important to cut them carefully into triangles. Count the total number of cut rectangles out into two equal piles. Cut the oblongs in the first pile on the diagonal from top left to bottom right. Cut the oblongs in the second pile on the diagonal from bottom left to top right, (as shown in the photo).
