FREE Alice’s Country Diary Quilt BOM Cutting Layout Assisting Tools – Instant Download


These shapes to print at home can help you plan your cutting layout, should you choose to use them. This method is optional but useful if you find it tricky to gauge a 1/4” seam allowance by eye when cutting out your shapes.

To use these shapes cut out the paper shapes along the red lines and position them on to the fabric as shown in the layout and cutting guides in your Alice’s Country Diary BOM instructions (instead of the supplied paper shapes from your kit). Proceed with cutting the fabric as per the instructions.

Once you have cut out the fabric shapes, put aside these shapes that include seam allowance for use in laying out your block next time. Use the paper shapes without seam allowance (as provided in the kit) to sew your EPP block with.

Print as many as you desire to aid your laying out.

These documents have as many shapes as can comfortably fit on a standard international A4 page. You will receive an A4 page for each shape.

Print at 100% scale.
