    Darling pattern. You can do either. Personally, I would cut all the quilt pieces, but not the borders and backing. I like to put cut pieces together in a small tote, so none escape until I need them.

    I often make a test block, so I'll cut enough for one block. If I'm happy with the sample I'll cut the rest, but like IrishRose, I don't cut the borders or backing until I get there.
