Jelly Roll Waves Ideas


You will find previously posted inspirational images of Jelly Roll Waves quilts in this blog post.  I have become obsessed with making blocks and have two sets to show you for additional inspiration.

Hanging on my design wall are the blocks for a Large Lap size in Scrumptious by Bonnie and Camille with a couple of other prints tossed in.  The background is Kona Snow.  This one is traditionally pieced {piece by piece sewn together} with a layer cake that had previously been cut into strips.  The consensus on Instagram was random fabric placement rather than grouping the fabrics by color in each wave.  I'm glad I did it this way; I like it a lot!


The second set of blocks I'm making are from Alison Glass prints.  The light fabrics are from the Sun Print Light collection, available as a FQ bundle right here.  The bright prints are from 2016 and 2018.  These quilt blocks will be completely different than any other JRW quilt I've made; the light fabrics will be the waves and the bright fabrics will be the jewels {or crescent rolls!}.  This quilt will be strip pieced, and each light fabric is paired with a matching bright print, so the jewels will be multicolored and hopefully sparkle like jewels!


It's your turn to share your fabric selection!  This isn't for blocks or cut fabric like I showed for inspiration.  Share your delicious pile of fabrics with us so we can pet it with you!
