The perfect for advanced beginners and fat quarter friendly Cutting Corners Quilt pattern comes in three different sizes: baby (40''x40''), small throw (40''x60'') and large throw (60''x80''). The pattern offers infinite colour combinations that will transform the main block and the look of the finished quilt every time you make it.

With the Cutting Corners Quilt you will learn how to sew snowball corners, add vertical and horizontal sashing strips and assemble the blocks in rows, as well as tips on pressing, how to sandwich your quilt and finish it with bias binding.

You can easily change the design and fabric combination making the sashing strips stand out or by highlighting certain parts of the main block like the smaller squares attached to the corners.

With detailed instructions, technical drawings and tips to get the best results, we hope that you will love making the Cutting Corners Quilt for yourself or for a loved one.
