Hawaii- 12" Quilt Block

 We will be using templates to cut the fabric for this block.  You can download the templates in .pdf format here.  (Note:  To view and print the templates requires Adobe Acrobat Reader, a free software download that can be found here.) Lay a sheet of template plastic over the printed templates and trace onto the template plastic.  Cut out and label each template.  Use the cutting chart below to cut your patches.
