Jelly Roll Waves Quilt Along - Cutting Fabric

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

It's not too late to join the Jelly Roll Waves Quilt Along!  First, you'll need the pattern if you don't have it already - get it right here.  Today is the Fabric Cutting step of the Jelly Roll Waves Quilt Along.  

Read about the prizes sponsored by Meadow Mist Designs and myself right here.  

Because the link-ups end only at noon and the next post comes out at noon {I can't figure out how to make them end at a different hour}, the winners of giveaways will be announced at the next link-up.  The random winner from the Fabric Selection link-up will be announced on July 16th.

This here's the schedule.  Each post will be at noon:
  • July 2 - Fabric Selection - Link-up open for one week.
  • July 9 - Fabric Cutting - Link-up open for one week.
  • July 16 - Half of the blocks - Link-up open for two weeks.
  • July 30 - Half of the blocks - Link-up open for two weeks.
  • August 13 - Quilt Tops - Link-up open for two weeks.
  • August 27 - Finished Quilt Parade - Link-up open for four weeks.

Jelly Roll Waves Fabric Cutting

Grab your jelly roll or yardage and get yer fabrics cut!  Let me know if you have any questions about how to cut your fabric a certain way to create the look you're after in your quilt.  The pattern includes a few ideas, but you may have something else in mind.

I am using strip piecing for one of my JRW quilts, using all 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 cut fabrics!  Please do not give away piece measurements with your pictures.   If you are still selecting fabrics, you can post your selections here, but only entries of cut fabrics will be entered in the giveaway drawing.  This link-up will be open through noon pacific time on July 16th.

If you need help with linking up, Cheryl at Meadow Mist Designs wrote a detailed blog post on this very subject.  Hop on over here to read it.

This link-up is only for the JELLY ROLL WAVES QUILT ALONG.  Do not enter Finished {or Not!} Friday posts here, please.  They will be deleted.

My fabric is all cut. I may have also gone ahead and sewed my strip sets. ☺
