Create a gorgeous quilted sofa throw with a summer theme by checking out the directions for the Indian Summer Quilt. Part 1: Cutting the Fabric teaches you how to cut the sweet solids and zany prints of your summery fat quarter quilt patterns. These pretty rectangles and squares of fabric will eventually be pieced together to form individual quilt blocks. If you have never cut fabric before, this guide also provides an excellent video to teach you the basics of rotary cutting. Check out all 3 parts of this tutorial to make this refreshing quilt block pattern.
