JOCELYN PROUST GEOMETRIC QUILT
WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
An excess amount of fabric will be needed to make the diagonal cuts. This will mean there will be a reasonable amount of leftovers. Of course leftovers are great because this means you can make a matching pillowcase, cushions, decorations and more with this beautiful fabric.

This quilt will require a good mind for measurement and an ability to experiment.
Because these pieces are large and require some precise cuts it's worth chalking up all the fabric to make sure your pattern works.
Start from the longest side and then work your way in on the angles. Remember all these shapes are square on two sides except for number 6 which should help to get the measurements fairly accurate.
Note - where the arrows are placed this requires an additional quarter of an inch to be added on either side for joining.
It is also important to note that the quilt is split diagonally right through the middle from the top of the right corner to the bottom of the left corner and will help with clean cuts lines for joining.
This will take some trial and error to measure up, however and is worth double checking your measurements along the way.
All the best of luck!
It is important to remember the piecing of the quilt is done on both side first and then the final join is placed down the middle
