Spring Fling: Magic Dot Cutting Tips

Here is the landing spot for those of you looking for a simplified cutting sheet when making the Spring Fling flower quilt in Magic Dot fabric. The original pattern separates the cutting instructions in three categories: flower centers, flower petals, and stems. In these Magic Dot versions, we are often use a print for multiple categories so I wanted to provide the cutting scenarios. Refer to the original Spring Fling cutting instruction for specific measurements.
